Stalking Punkie's Thoughts  
My latest brain droppings

  • 12:35 is tired and weak. Gonna try to get more housework done, then take beloved to dinner for 20th anniversary. #
  • 14:28 Why am I watching "Way of the Dragon" again? Like a traffic accident, I can't look away... #
  • 15:38 @sinspired one of my "radio signal" clocks was also off; by exactly one week and one hour for a day. But now it's fine. Huh. #
  • 15:41 I am so sorry, sci-fi new age community. I don't believe aliens have visited us. Ever. #
  • 15:48 I know Reiki may seem like I am into new age hoo-ha, but I have SEEN that work. Never seen an alien, nor a scrap of physical proof. #
  • 15:52 Ha ha ha, Storm (my crabby older cat) just jumped on the flaps of an empty box, and fell in. She panicked, but worse, lost MAJOR dignity.... #
  • 16:19 Man, "ancient astronaut" theorists don't give our ascestors ANY credit for figuring stuff out. "Pyramids are hard to build" = aliens? Pfft. #
  • 16:22 The lines at Nazca feels like a pointless middle management project to me. "Why we draw these?" "The Duke says it's a team building thing." #
  • 16:32 "We didn't know what the skull was, so we took it to an alternative knowledge guru..." Alternative Knowledge guru? Not a doctor? #
  • 16:41 "We didn't invent electricity, aliens did..." NO, you moron! NO ONE invented electricity! Any more than anyone *inventing* water... #
  • 16:53 Why do I watch these shows when they make me so mad? I expect better from the National Geographic channel, that's why!! (shakes fist) #
  • 17:35 "The new Coors Beer can logo turns blue so you know it's cold." As opposed to just, you know, touching it... #
  • 22:33 All kinds of awesome: Roman cat sanctuary tinyurl.com/9trbb9 #
  • 23:17 I miss Sweden... #

Nasca Lines are neat. Good example of the use of three sticks.

Was the show hosted or based on anything by Erich Von Daniken? He's the ultimate example in the lack of faith for the human race.

Erich was present for a lot of interviews, but actually, he has now admitted he was wrong about a lot in his first book.

It didn't help the NatGeo was splicing clips of really bad 1950s science fiction movies...

We used a lot of Von Daniken in our Critical Thinking class. The instructor pretty much went through his entire book, shredding it to little parts with logic. It was one of the best classes I ever took, and I use concepts from it just about every day.
