The New Boredom

Mah and Newer. Manure.

Hey there, World… you look good.

with one comment

Welcome to a new decade, apparently. I always think it’s funny when math jerks get into falsely intellectual debates with lay-people about how to define when a new decade or new millennium or whatever actually starts. I don’t think anyone actually cares. It’s sort of like when I get pissed at someone for using further/farther incorrectly. No one actually cares and chances are good that I don’t think any less of you for your grammatical blunders. Chances are good that I hate you all the same either way.

I just peeled one of the tastiest and juiciest clementines of my life and ate it right up. Like every time I peel a clementine (which is often this time of year), I think about my 6th grade geography teacher, Mister Miller, and how he was the first person to adequately explain to me why Greenland often appears as large as Africa on maps despite being about 1/15th the size. I sort of always knew that you can’t flatten the surface of a sphere without distortion and honestly I don’t even remember what certain thing Mr. Miller said that made it all so clear to me.

But thanks Mr. Miller. I got it because of you. And I think about what a great teacher you were every time I peel a little orange.

I almost always forget that Kevin Nealon can be funny and that he can do other things than that subconscious slip gag he does.

  1. All these 29 yr olds don’t realize they’re already in their 30th year.

    I may have used “further” incorrectly today, I need to look into that.
