Doubt Revisited

“The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so
certain of themselves, but wiser people so full of doubts.”
— Bertrand Russel

I had already posted a couple of quotes about doubt, but this quote really made me think. It is not an explanation of the world but it does give us a clue… what do you think?

A Dios Le Pido

Here is the translation of one of the most beautiful songs by Juanes.

A Dios le pido
I ask of God

Por los dias que me quedan
For the days that I have left
y las noches que aun no llegan yo
And the nights that have yet to arrive – I
A dios le pido
Ask of God
Por los hijos de mis hijos y los hijos de tus hijos
For the sons of my sons and the sons of your sons
A dios le pido
Ask of God
Que mi pueblo no derrame tanta sangre y se levante mi gente
That my people don’t shed so much blood and rise again
A dios le pido
Ask of God
Que mi alma no descanse cuando de amarte se trate mi cielo
That my soul never rest when it comes to loving you mi Cielo
A dios le pido
Ask of God

Un segundo mas de vida para darte y mi corazon entero entregarte
A second more of life to give you and my whole heart deliver to you
Un segundo mas de vida para darte y a tu lado para siempre yo quedarme
A second more of life to give you and by your side for ever be
Un segundo mas de vida yo a dios le pido
A second more of life to give you I ask of God
Y que si me muero sea de amor
That if I die is because of love
Y si me enamoro sea de vos
That if I fall in love it would be with you
Y que de tu voz sea este corazon todos los dias a dios le pido
And that of your voice this heart can be, every day I ask of God

Why do we wear a neck tie?

Well, I got into a conversation about the neck tie’s origin. I was asked why do men wear it, and I had in the past looked it up but could not remember the reason. Here is a little historical account of the origin of the neck tie. If you have no clue, then post what you think the origin of the neck tie is… or just what comes to mine before you Click Here

Now with that read, if you had the change to click and read, there is something called a Colombian Neck Tie. While it is not a thing that I will like to describe here lets just say it is not for the weak of stomach. It was an interesting read nonetheless 😉

Second Logtar’s Looney Lunes

Well, Today might be the last time that we have the LLL :) since BDI is back up I want to direct my influx over there… so participate today and don’t forget to go do the mambo!!! THE CRAZIES ARE BACK

Today we move from word association to scent memory. I know I associate certain scents to memories, or better yet a scent can bring back very vivid memories. Now lets not exclude those that are olfactory impaired and just let them use their imagination. It is easy to play, just close your eyes and think of the scent and then tell us what comes to mind. It does not have to be a memory, but if it is share 😉

Fresh Rain:
Hot Cocoa:
The Ocean:

Now lets keep on thinking of scents and lets come up with some goofy questions.

1. What air freshener do you prefer to use in your car? New car smell, Strawberry, Lilac? Why do you like it a memory attached to it?

2. Does the smell of doctor or dentist office bring you what kind of memories? Lets not forget that if we have a loved one in those professions it might not all be nightmares 😉

3. Candles, incense, air fresheners… are there anything items that you use to make your home scented?

Windshield Wipers

With all the technology that we have now days, why is it that windshield wipers still suck?

I have bought both high end and cheap wipers and it made no difference they both sucked. I mean, it is not like I am expecting my windshield wipers to defrost themselves in the middle of winter and scrape the windshield clear for me. No I just want them to consistently clean the glass clean, not leave streaks and cover the whole surface area that they extend to. But it is obviously too much to ask.

Who knows maybe someone out there has found the holy grail of windshield wipers and they are about to tell me how it is but I doubt it. And yes I have used rainx before and it does work but you still need wipers no matter what, especially during the winter with all the salt that ends up on the windshield.
