There is nothing that can make me almost shit myself faster than a pigeon slamming into my windshield when I am driving down the road.
Its upsetting. I thought my damned windshield had cracked.
Luckily, it didn’t. I am wildly happy about that because that costs money to fix.
And the shit doesn’t grow on trees.
The pigeon? I dunno, he’s probably dead.
I have given it a lot of thought and I have come to the conclusion that I don’t care.
For all I know, the pigeon was suicidal and this was his way of checking out.
Either way, its not like it was a dog or a cat.
If it is not a domesticated animal, its on the food chain and up for grabs.
I am sure some of you wonder how I can be so callus about an animal’s death.
Animals die every day and the world keeps spinning.
Life goes on.
I saw a thing online of a guy who is obviously shilling for the vegetarians who claimed to have been employed by a slaughter house.
He had a whole tearful spiel about how the cows cry and show emotion before death.
Like the only reason carnivores have been eating animal flesh since the dawn of time is because we had no idea the meat didn’t want to die.
Vegetarians are the Johova’s Witnesses of the nutritional world.
Not only do they believe something, but the are fairly incesant that you believe it too.
It almost reminds me of the anti bullying movement that figures that all you need to do is let the bully know that its not cool and it hurts someones feelings.
I have actually seen some schools put up “No bullying Zone” next to the “Gun free zone” sign.
Awesome, it will probably work just as well.
Using that flawed logic, the only way the bullying will stop is if the people that pay no attention to the ridiculous “Gun free zone” sign accidentally shoot the bully.
That is a truly messed up line, but there is an element of brutal truth in there.
But, simply because something is the truth doesn’t mean it should be said.
Somebody posted a thing on Facebook that said that it isn’t hating if its true.
Not true. Ask if its your job to say it. If its not, it may still be true, but you are a douchebag.
If you are going to stake out the “Truth even if it hurts feelings” don’t try to cover that with the shield of truth.
Take responsibility for it and don’t try to cover your ass with some soft headed platitude about the hating/truth thing.
That means you know that you are a douchebag and you are reflexively looking for the emotional get out of jail free card.
It’s not your fault, its the pussy society we live in.
Confrontation has been beaten out of you to the point that even when you want to rub someones nose in something, (Remember, because its true) You have to wuss out and preface it to try and deflect the douchebag label that is heading your way.
I gave that one up awhile back.
Try it sometime.
And the first time someone tells you “You’re an asshole”, revel in it.
Otherwise, you are just another pigeon, hitting the windshield.
