"The sun was shining on the sea,
Shining with all his might:
He did his very best to make
The billows smooth and bright--
And this was odd, because it was
The middle of the night.
O Oysters," said the Carpenter,
"You've had a pleasant run!
Shall we be trotting home again?'
But answer came there none--
And this was scarcely odd, because
They'd eaten every one.'
The Walrus And The Carpenter
Life is fascinating and if we only concentrate on sad things we will die young and exhausted. If we concentrate on the seemingly good things we can become obese because food seems to be the ultimate reference point; food and maybe drink.
So we better concentrate on the ODD things because those are in abundance nowadays and you can laugh or cry at your leisure. Whatever you prefer. I made my judgment.
1. The election day is Nov.6, which is a day before the 95th anniversary of Great Russian Revolution, also about 40 days before the End of Times' day, Dec.21.And this is odd because neither of the current presidential candidates know anything about Russian Revolution or Mayans ( \except for what it is written in children's book). Maybe we should not bless the beasts and the children after all?
2. Hurricane Sandy had just devastated Snooki's habitat but we can be sure she will find some another place to thrive. She is a resilient species. The new show will be called 'Staten Island', or 'After the Storm' or something else. And this is scarcely odd because you need much more than Sandy to get rid of Snooki. Maybe Ivan would do the job?
3. Guistave Flaubert once said , "Style defines a man". It sounds very odd when 100% of our politicians have NO style. Odd?
4. Our illustrious Hillary C. had recently paraphrased Caesar (who said," I came, I saw, I conquered.") by saying about our rape of Libya, "We came, we saw, he died." Ignorance does not surprise me anymore, nor does malice but what is really scarcely odd is that even in this statement Hillary managed to avoid the individual responsibility.
5. Feodor Dostoevsky once in his "Travel Notes' formulated a scathing definition of the Western society:
