Tales From The Print Shop
I gotta be brief (ish) this week, because it’s getting late. I hope you understand.
The show started with a tale of how I screwed up an order that came into the shop recently. It was a job for which the customer supplied the garments to be printed.
The customer wanted to see a photo of the first print. I put that info on the write up. But, I didn’t check the write up when I saw the first print. Uh oh.
Adult People Believe This!
California has Disneyland. Florida has Disney World. Kentucky has… Ark Encounter.
All are indulgences in fantasy. Except there are adult people who believe Ark Encounter isn’t a fantasy. There are adult people who believe in the myth of a worldwide flood caused by God, because his people behaved wickedly, so goodbye all life on Earth.
Yikes! Talk about throwing the baby out with the bath water. (There’s a pun in there somewhere.)
No worries. God instructed old Noah, a not wicked man, to build an ark to house mating pairs of every kind of animal for a year on the waters with which He would soon be flooding the entire planet.
Yes. There are adults who believe this!
And some of those adult people built Ark Encounter in Kentucky to show other adult people and their kids the silliness that is the story of Noah’s ark. Sure, some people go to Ark Encounter to snicker at the silliness, but most who attend believe that in ancient times God instructed the 500 year-old Noah to build…
Wait! What now? 500 hundred years old? And it took him 100 years to complete the ark? Adult people believe this?! Yes! Adult people believe this.
You’re Not An Atheist. You’re Agnostic
A longtime friend of mine insisted that I could only really be agnostic, as in I don’t know there is a God, and not an atheist, as in I know there is no God. But an atheist doesn’t believe there is a God or gods. They don’t necessarily know there isn’t a God or gods.
(That said, there are no gods.)
Ok, maybe I don’t know God doesn’t exist, but I certainly don’t believe one (or any) exists.
I should have asked my friend if he was agnostic about Zeus.
Cool Thing: Babcock Ranch, Florida
America’s first solar-powered town didn’t lose power or the internet as a result of Hurricane Ian the way much of its neighboring city Fort Myers did.
Babcock Ranch is a town of 2000 residents that was specifically built to run on electricity generated entirely from solar power. It was also designed to have its streets flood and not its houses.
This is way cool!
Smart, long-term thinking and planning could help weather future such storms in other cities in the future. We just need to stop the short-term horse and buggy thinking.
Werewolf By Night: A Review
My goodness! Is that the time? I’ll have to keep this review short.
I really like the Werewolf By Night Special on Disney+. Perfect? No, but what is? It was fun and I was entertained. What else should I asked for?
A longer review (with spoilers!) by me and my fellow members of the GOOCH Squad can be found on my friend Douglas Arthur’s podcast: Assault of the 2-Headed Spaces Mules.
