Millennials question for candidates #3.

poor georgie’s almanack:

Genealogy and Astronomy are so much alike.  

The more you investigate, the deeper you get into a black hole from which nothing escapes.

The Day The Dinosaurs Died

poor georgie’s science almanack:  

The Day The Dinosaurs Died

What will emerge after the next round of mass extinctions, when the world as we know it dies?  

Curiously, after the dinosaurs disappeared, a niche was available for small mammals to thrive and become us.

    In my 20s, it was clear that the solution to my ills, and those of the world, was a vodka martini.

     In my 30s, the cure to any problem, one way or another, revolved around a roll of duct tape.

     In my 40s, I learned the answer to Life, the Universe and Everything was 42.

     In my 50s, things were looking up and satellites quickly replaced plastics as the obvious remedy.

     In my 60s, fat free frozen yogurt.

     In my 70s, naps.

     Now, unbelievably, the new solution is something very old ... WD-40.

     Pretty slick, eh?

Guess what? 

They are provided much better public services.

Going to a candidate event?  

Here’s a question to ask.  

“If you only have a fixed amount of money for  helping people with food, medicine, etc., how will you decide who will be helped and who will die?”
