A morning run GOOD MORNING!!! to you all! Yup, getting in the road work for an upcoming Jits tournament at the end of the month. Work to do…and I hate running!
Think About it Thursday Ed-vise today. Cause it’s THURSDAY! Time to THINK!
I started watching 1883 last night with Spousal Support Unit. Newbie has been given over to The Niece…voluntarily, mind you.
So far, I like it better than Yellowstone. The hardships endured on the different trails through the Western US and the way of dealing with them are easier for me to get behind. Those, versus the legal misdealings of Yellowstone. Further, there are no dogs in Yellowstone. HUGE issue for me.
I was admiring the amount of time the people, at that time, had to simply Think. To take in and observe life and the visible world. To interact with other humans simply because you had nothing else to do. That life would go by in such a manner as to cause you to forget what day it was in the week.
Can you imagine what it would be like to actually forget what day it was?
I mean we all have forgotten the specific numbered day of the month. Shoot, how often are you annoyed that you write down the wrong year at the New Year? I’m saying to actually FORGET that it is Thursday. Just another day where the sun comes up and, later on, the dark of night sets in.
According to archaeologists humans started keeping time about 5000 years ago. Thus, in the amount of time that humans have been on earth, time keeping is a recent phenomenon started by the Egyptians.
So, Think About It. Why did the Egyptians start keeping time?
Science says they did for planting and harvesting along with other communal events.
See, Egyptians also invented beer. Once that came about, I think Egyptians started staying out later and pissing off their Spousal Support Units. During some of the heated arguments, I bet one Spousal Unit said “You’re late!” To which the response was “How can I be late? There is no such thing as time.”
And the rest is history.
I’m just saying
That’s it for today. Take care of yourselves. Check in on each other and remember if you are cold, go stand in a corner because it is always…90 DEGREES! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA
