It's Grass Is Always Browner on the Other Side of the Fence Day! While I appreciate the low expectations this holiday implies on the surface, when I read more about the impetus for this occasion I realized the intent was to get us to appreciate what we have. Gratitude? Hard pass!
It's National Megalodon Day! These massive sharks swam the oceans for 20 million years during the Cenozoic Era. Weighing over 60 tons with mouths 8-11 feet wide, these deep sea denizens were the ultimate in nautical notoriety.
I go back and forth on my hermit fantasies. On the one hand, I love alone time and usually find society annoying. On the other, though, I like having access to the conveniences of urban living like cool book stores and people who will make excellent tacos for me. I could live in a remote locale, make my own tacos, and have books shipped, but it's not quite the same.
We've all done it, even though we (should) all know better. Someone says something dumb online and we feel compelled to let them know just how stupid they are, or maybe to try and make them see reason and come around to our way of thinking. I can assure you that you cannot reason with idiots on the internet. Taking their bait and getting into an argument with them won't change their behavior or bring you any joy. Just let them continue being an idiot, barking into the digital void. #Don'tFeedTheTrolls
