Would you give your opinion on one, just one, (non-virus-related) thing?

Asked by Jeruba (48953points) 1 week ago

Preferably make it something you don’t already give your opinion on all the time; but if you have to ride your hobbyhorse, sure, go ahead.

Just make it one opinion, on one topic, and not covid-19-related.

Ok, fire away.

My CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) ticker tape said that the USA attacked Iran last week. No follow up was listed. Is it fact? Or fiction?

I can see the strain on Rachel Maddow’s face growing as the news is getting more dire.

I believe the world would work better if we taught children how to receive anger. There are ways to shrug off hurtful comments, and good techniques for standing up to bullies safely. That information would help prevent fights, and ultimately end wars.

You don’t need to walk 10,000 paces a day, a Japanese company in the 1960’s sold pedometers; the name of the company was ”!0,000 steps”.

I think minestrone is a great soup. It’s cheap, it’s visually pleasing, it’s healthy, and it’s delicious. More people should be making minestrone. No excuse to not be eating well when you can throw a bunch of vegetables in a pot and have meals for days.

I think the idea of zombies-as-villains is way overrated, and I bet they just smell really bad.

The Boomers spent the wealth that their parents suffered terribly to accumulate, and then, when it was gone, got out the credit card to keep the party going.

And as a testament to their amorality, they are leaving it to their children and grandchildren to pay the tab.

My opinion-that’s just wrong. Woodstock my ass.

Today was a beautiful day in Atlanta, 75 degrees and sunny. My opinion is that Spring is here.

Generally speaking, people are inherently stupid animals. But, generally speaking, not all in the same ways.

However, I don’t want any delivered to me.

Ok, this is going to be a long one. Right now the biggest thing in my mind is this: there is this Youtube channel that used to clog my recommendation a while ago. His videos in my recommendation list were about personal development and his insight was super useful to me, even though I already know the basics of some of them. But that was his videos of about 2016. His recent videos are just rambling of a man deeply stuck in drug use and narcissism of being the most enlightened human being. His last video is chocked full of comments about how he is too narcissistic to be enlightened and that’s just sad…

2019 seems to be the first time his spirituality teaching was criticized by other spirituality enthusiasts. A lot of the critics seem to dismiss the fact that he didn’t originally start his channel as a spirituality channel, he started out as a life coach channel. I think his biggest problem is that he confused life coaching with spirituality. They look the same on the surface, but they are actually two different things which require different skill sets to master. The guy didn’t realize that and just looked at his success on life coaching and thought he could just go straight into spirituality to further his career. This thinking is like thinking just because you’re an expert at crossword puzzle means you automatically qualified for Sudoku they are both puzzles and require filling something inside a square right? :D That, plus his discovery of drug gave him the illusion that he finally mastered the truth of the universe and led to his downfall.

Instead of trying to be the most enlightened human, he should have stuck to being a life coach and actually improved his videos in a more creative way. Literally every video is just him looking at the camera and talking non-stop for an hour. That gets boring after a while and provides no creativity. He could have tried to use more visual cues or talk about more relevant topics. There are so many ways he could have tried to make his channels better without using drug and becoming crazy…

This channel is extremely interesting to me. It unintentionally taught me about how to know what you are truly good at and how fame can drive people crazy. The guy’s mission is to teach people how to be better, so in a way his story does make me a better person so I’d say he did something right?

I find the amount of rebels breaking quarantine slightly amusing, as well as disturbing.
We had a 50 person motorcycle gang (of teens, 20 somethings) roaring all over town on deserted streets.
Some of the ‘cruisers’, car guys, are going on a run tonight against the order.
Ah Americans, pissing in the wind just because they can. I can’t help but admire the spirit. Especially on my day 14 of home stay.

^^^ So much for “not virus related”...

canidmajor's avatar

Never watched it, reference lost on me.

KNOWITALL's avatar

@canidmajor Since others were posting virus related, I went ahead as well.
But since the OP requested non-virus, I had nothing.

It’s from Anchorman.

canidmajor's avatar

Didn’t see the others, sorry.

People are people. We’re pretty much the same throughout the different generations. Yet each generation likes to put the other generations down. Except no one criticizes the Great generation (they saved the world).

FYI: @josie l’m a boomer born in ‘51. My Mom raised my two older Sisters and I by working 2 and 3 jobs with no “State aid” as she called it (She was too proud to take it). My Father died when I was 4. We were about as poor as you can get. I worked my way through college by working for KFC for 6 years earning a BA degree in Clinical Science. I considered Woodstock and the entire Hippie thing as a bunch of phony nonsense. I never smoked pot, used tobacco, drank alcohol or used any other recreational drugs. I worked my ass off for 38 years as a healthcare professional. Invested in the stock marked along the way (and achieved critical mass). Never carried a credit card balance and bought and sold 3 homes and quite a few cars. I made it to the upper middle class (the “bourgeoisie” as you may call it). I pay more in taxes than most people earn and have far more resources than I ever use.

FYI: Obama added nearly $10 trillion to the USA National Debt. Far more than any President in the history of the USA.

I don’t think enough enough people care about the environment to save us from the final straw.

KNOWITALL's avatar

@YARNLADY I sadly agree. Most won’t even try to tecucle.

@KNOWITALL “tecucle”? HA! Good one. Never heard of it. Why didn’t you just say recycle?
