10 More Ideas or Thoughts To Ponder Over

When you find yourself with just a little too much time on your hands, here are a few more thoughts to ponder over. I’m sure you may be able to relate to….. or have thought about one or two of the following ideas. Try not to spend to much time on each one 😛

  • Why is it that success usually occurs in private, and failure takes place in full view?
  • The severity of the itch is directly proportional to YOUR inability to reach it.
  • The sooner you fall behind, the more time you’ll have to catch up.
  • A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory.
  • Why isn’t phonetic spelled the way it sounds?
  • Why are there interstate highways in Hawaii?
  • Why does your nose run and your feet smell?
  • How can someone “draw a blank”?
  • How far east can you go before you’re heading west?
  • Why is it that everyone driving faster than you is considered an idiot and everyone driving slower than you is a moron?

What Modern Conveniences Could You NOT Live Without?

If we all took the time to stop whatever it is that we’re doing at the moment — even a brief moment — to think of all the modern conveniences and technology that fill our daily lives such as communication devices, computers, vehicles, appliances, televisions, audio and video players/recorders, power tools, electronic gadgets, etc. — it’s quite overwhelming! It’s simply amazing to think how dependent we have become on them as the years pass by. Can you imagine your life today without some of them?

What “Modern Conveniences” Do You Feel You Can’t Live Without?

Those of you born in the late 70’s or early 80’s  and beyond probably can’t remember a time when microwave ovens, cell phones, computers, cable television, and other modern conveniences and luxuries didn’t exist, but I was born in the late fifties, and I recall a time when life was much easier, simpler and considerably less expensive. Of course, even these days it isn’t really necessary to have a cell phone, cable or satellite television or even a computer, unless you’ve allowed yourself to be taken in by modern technology. Many of these modern conveniences I swore I’d never need or want, but now I find myself not wanting to live without them because they have made living so much easier.

Are you old enough to remember when cable television and satellite television didn’t exist? Or are you old enough to remember when there were only three networks on the air – ABC, CBS, NBC and they all signed off at midnight… except on Friday and Saturday nights? I vividly recall watching shows like Bonanza, Combat, Andy Griffith, Dick Van Dyke, Father Knows Best, Gilligan’s Island, The Flintstones, Wild Kingdom, and The Wonderful World of Disney on a 19-inch black and white television set with rabbit ears, and was quite content with that.

So… What Are Your Thoughts?

Nowadays there are more than ever modern conveniences — so many that I couldn’t even begin to list them all. The past three decades have seen amazing advances in technology, and the list of things that we’re used to at the present that were NOT even thought of when I was a child would probably span several pages. I’m fairly certain that it would be very difficult for younger people to imagine never owning many of the items we currently consider a commonplace staple, typical and/or necessary.

I guess that we can’t miss modern conveniences we’ve never had.

What “Modern Conveniences” Do You Feel You Couldn’t Live Without?

Your answers will greatly depend upon your age and what you grew up with and without. It will be interesting to learn what people in different age groups consider necessary, and what they consider an unnecessary modern convenience.

People are always looking to improve themselves or improve in some particular area of their lives. They are always trying to find solutions to problems. There are websites out there catering to most of the categories listed above that are already generating hundreds and even thousands of dollars every month for savvy entrepreneurs. Yet, we have barely even begun to tap the true profit potential in these areas because competition is limited in many of these areas, especially when compared to the “how-to marketing” area! The potential to make money from the above special-interest categories is huge – and it’s still pretty much wide open. Moreover, as more and more people get accustomed to buying digital products, you can easily imagine making very lucrative or insane amounts of money through these topics well into the future.

“Having Guts” vs “Having Balls”: Do You Know The Difference?

Subject: “Having Guts” vs “Having Balls”

Do You know the difference?

At one time or another, we’ve all heard people talk about having or not having the guts or people having or not having the balls to do or say something. But do you really know the difference between the two?

Well, in an effort to clarify the difference for you and to keep you well informed, you’ll find the definition below…

GUTS – is arriving home late after a night out with the guys, being met by your wife with a broom, and having the guts to ask….. “Are you still cleaning, or are you flying somewhere?”

BALLS – is coming home late after a night out with the guys, wreaking of perfume and beer, with lipstick on your collar, then slapping your wife on the butt and having the balls to say…..”You’re next!”

I hope this clears up any confusion on the definitions.

Medically speaking, there is no difference in the out come, since they both ultimately result in death. 😛
