I like building small simple stuff but engineering is too much math. Had an engineering major roommate and his homework texts were evil to me, and he had to use this program for the courses on computer that kept freezing and crashing it since it took so much memory to run. Give me philosophy and psychology plz art also thanks.
I remember in the 2016 debates they were asked some question about education and marco rubio said something like we need more plumbers and fewer philosophers. To me it was ignorant to say because such vocations are not mutually exclusive, it exposed his misunderstanding of what philosophy etc are, and it would be an ugly world if everyone just did what they had to do bc it was useful, not also what they wanted to do because they simply wanted to do it. I'm thinking 1984-ish. I agree that plumbers are of course necessary and useful but no more or less than philosophers. MY TWO CENTS
Who employs the plumber to do the work? Maybe the philosopher. There is room in the world for both. In a sense everybody is a philosopher. Even if we do talk thrash most of the time. There is common philosophy and more complicated philosophy. The boys in the hood debating whatever they debate can claim it is another form of philosophy. We all have views on things. Not views in the sense of just another opinion. How it happens. Why it happens.
FUN FACT- the word 'metaphysics' is almost always misused. I forget who the guy was but he was writing a book back in ancient days about philosophy things. one chapter was about physics, which used to be called natural philosophy. but first he wrote a chapter on his thoughts of the basic nature of existence and reality that he just titled 'me ta physika,' which i think translates roughly to the chapter preceding the physics chapter. when some other dude was copying the work down he misread the chapter title.
a lot of ppl who believe crystals are sentient or things of that nature, basically mystical stuff, think that is what metaphysics is, which is not correct.

Now to cancel out that nerdy stuff, here is a video of cats puking synched up to some damn techno song.
OK, So we had the engine and all of that to build. Still think they could have given us some see through plastic to use as windows. Though the regular windows on this car would be dark and tinted. So they wanted the inside of the car to be seen. Finished way before I expected. That is what happens when you make zero mistakes. Relaxing and keeps me off the net. Next up is a forklift truck. A very big forklift truck. But my plans are to get one that is remote control. You have to build it all from the ground up. Now doubt it would mean a lot of work. But there is always a sense of pleasure once you are done. Turning a box with over a thousand pieces into a car.
Sometimes I think aging sucks. And sometimes I?m amazed at how much I?ve accomplished in the last ten years. I saved my h for sure. Turned things around. Completely. Literally. And then I?m aware of having more years behind me and much less years in front of me. Sometimes I?m proud of the fact that I swim laps each morning. And sometimes I look in the mirror and feel so sad. Sad for the girl I used to be. Sometimes I feel happy for the woman I?ve become.
I could go on flipping opposite sides of this coin.
Heads you win, tails you lose.
Sometimes I think aging sucks. And sometimes I feel happy for the woman I?ve become.
I had to leave the girl behind.
Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
Fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way.
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way.
Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain.
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today.
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you.
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun.
So you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again.
The sun is the same in a relative way but you're older,
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.
Every year is getting shorter never seem to find the time.
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
The time is gone, the song is over,
Thought I'd something more to say.
So I go down to visit my regular doctor. Receptionist knows I hate queues. She smiles and tells me there is only 1 in front of me. You think ' hell yeah, be out of here in no time at all '. He is an old man with a walking frame. What does he do? He only goes and has a heart attack in the doctor's office. Ten minute wait turned into over an hour. Ambulance rang and all that sort of stuff. Very warm day. I am sure that was what might have done him in. He was still able to talk and all that. Bad chest pains and the likes. Just my bloody luck though. As much as I do hope he was OK, I had to smile over it. As did the receptionist. Holding her hands up as if to say ' don't blame us '. Last thing I expected.
