Bugs don't have the perspective to avoid collision with people who are also moving. Bugs run into you all the time.

In all of eternity, you don't think a bug will collide with you even once?
I am not so sure that there will be any bugs in eternity. The Millennium - yes - absolutely - no doubt whatsoever. Eternity - not so sure...

I was at a plant and garden show last spring... A landscaping company has this flameless outdoor fireplace set up on display, and I loved it (way out of my price range, lol, but I loved looking at it.) You feel a slight heat at the very source of the "flames," but it's not hot at all.

One little boy was sitting on the edge and had his whole hand engulfed in the "flames."

So this picture is my own take for myself. It reminded me of the story of Moses and the burning bush that was on fire, but didn't burn up, and the passage:

Isaiah 43:2 -- "... When you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you."[/QUOT]

Wow! I like that, that's very good. Or like Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego....It's amazing how something as insignificant as a picture (the meaning behind it) can speak to someone. Thank you!

I like that verse so much, I designed two panels for it .:D

The first was inspired by a conversation you were having with Kojikun... and the 2nd one was inspired by Oblio...


from Isaiah 43:1-3

Isaiah 43:2

Ladies, do you really use this as an indicator?

I listen to stand-up comedy on youtube a lot. I just heard a comedian talk about a gift his wife gave him, an ear and nose hair trimmer.

"What's this for?"

"Well you're on the road a lot, I can't keep up with your grooming any more."

"I never asked you to keep up with it."

"Well I don't want ladies to see you with ear and nose hair. They'll think you don't have a woman in your life so they'll be flirting with you."

"Baby have you taken a good look at me lately? I don't think that'll be a problem."

Ladies do you use the presence of ear and nose hair as a metric of whether a guy is single?

If you were married, do you think you would worry about this?

Yeah, I know, this is a comedian... But now I gotta know if this is legit what you girls check. I may have been plucking nose hairs in vain all these years. :p

No, his old lady is tired of seeing hair growing out everywhere and don’t want others to think she doesn’t keep her husband somewhat presentable. Bonus added: she makes her husband think he’s still attractive. You don’t want a man who doesn’t think he’s attractive.😂

That actually plays into something I read one time in a Sherlock Holmes story. Sherlock said he believed, based on a quick glance at a stranger, that the stranger's wife did not love him because of the dust on his hat. He told Watson that if Watson's wife ever let him leave the house with that much accumulation of dust on his hat, Sherlock would suspect Watson had lost his wife's love too.

I have discovered a secondary use for glasses!

If you gotta wear the doggone things anyway, might as well get all the use you can out of them. Not like it's going to ruin my image at this stage anyway.

You look like one of those intellectuals from Europe. I might have had a professor looking like that.

Stop telling a depressed person to smile more. Of course the first thing they tried to do was try to be happy.

Yeah, when I'm having a BLEEP of a day and somebody bounces past and says "Smile!" I'm tempted to punch him in the gut and say, "See? It's not that easy sometimes."

I never have done it, but the temptation is sometimes fierce.

Seems like people are trying real hard to start arguments in the forum lately. Boredom can be a terrible thing.

What we need is another pokémon go. Something that everyone is either playing or complaining about. That would give people something to focus on.

Either that or a major disaster. But major disasters never hold the headlines for more than a week anymore. Another pokémon go class event would have more longevity.

I remember when Pokemon GO became a thing with smart phones about a decade ago. The park near my local library was filled with kids night and day obsessed with it.

At least it got people out of the house and kept the dust off them. And probably kept them out of trouble.
