Disney shutting down Pirates of the Caribbean “Auction”

So Disney has decided to remove the “human trafficking” scene in the popular Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland and Magic Kingdom. Yes, the pirates ride. Just look up what real pirates pirates have done in the past. So if you really think about it, the whole ride should be shut down. This scene is about to be removed but, war mongering, torture, arson, thievery, drunkenness, domestic violence towards men scenes will stay.

Please just leave the rides alone.

Backward Hats…

At what age did you turn your hat around from the improper backwards configuration to the proper direction? I think for me it was never, because I always wore my hat the correct way. There is nothing sadder than seeing a grown man with his cap on backwards. That and wearing a polo, cargo shorts and flip flops at the same time.

Roadside Watermelons

Here’s how to get a deal on those roadside watermelons. You can get 1 for $6 dollars or 2 for $10. Buy two of them and then ask to return one of them. Since 1 watermelon is worth $6 dollars you end up paying only $4 for the 1 watermelon. It’s a great deal. If they don’t accept returns, just smash both of your watermelons all over the pavement so that the onlookers can see. It’s only $10, and how fun is it to smash a watermelon? Just ask Gallagher.

Slides vs Flip flops

I understand flip flops. What I don’t understand is the slides and socks configuration. The point of flip flops is they’re easy on/off and keep your feet cool. Slides are easy on/off and keep your feet cool, but socks keep your feet warm. Slides and socks may be comfortable but it my opinion it’s a sign of giving up. You made the effort of putting on socks but didn’t commit to go full shoe. It’s like when people put on house shoes and smash down the heels. It’s just plain lazy.

I do not wear slides or flip flops out in public under any circumstance. My argument is simple. They are terrible for your feet, if you think about it they are not secure on your foot at all, so your subconscious mind has to make the foot work extra to keep them on. This will put stress on your tendons and ligaments. Plus, you can’t run away from pit bulls. If there is shattered glass in your path while the pit bull is chasing you, the bloody footprints will allow the dog to track you if you manage to hide from him.

Finally, if you must expose your feet to the public, please consider something with a heel strap. Also, clean up your feet and toenails for goodness sake.

How can you be a better Christian?

I heard someone say the other day, that “this person is just a better Christian than I am”. Nonsense, you can’t be a better Christian than someone else just like any two corpses in the morgue can be deader than each other. You are either a Christian or you are not. It’s important to distinguish between things you have to do and what you want to do.

You don’t have to do anything to be a better a Christian, but you will want to do things because you are.

  • You will want to read your Bible.
  • You will want to love/serve others.
  • You will want to sing praises.
  • You will want to Pray.
  • You will want to be obedient.
  • And you will want to be humble and brag less about how good of a Christian you are.

Socialization for home schooled kids

One of the most frequently asked questions about home-schooling is socialization. I simply ask “Do you mean being allowed to talk and interact when and how they want like a normal human?”. I like to job the public school parents memory of what their kids are experiencing in school right now.

  • Standing/Walking in single file down hallways
  • Sitting in a desk for 6 hours
  • Getting in trouble for doodling or passing notes
  • Having to raise your hand to speak (I understand the reason, it’s just not natural)
  • Asking permission for a drink of water
  • Asking permission to go to the toilet
  • Maybe if they are good and didn’t socialize they will get a 15-30 break to socialize outside under strict supervision.

Home school kids get plenty of socialization such as: little league, co-ops, nature walks, and of course going to all the nice local parks while other kids are in school. Also, going to major theme parks when other kids are in school in nice too.
