Some Things That Make Me Wonder

These are the days of miracle and wonder


My life seems to be full of things that make me wonder. Maybe it’s because I’m a curious person. I like to know why. Maybe I just need a life. Here’s some things that make me wonder.

I wonder why we need 25/8/366 news these days? I know there’s a lot more people on the earth these days, but was there less news 50 or 100 years ago? Is there more stuff going on now than there was then? Or does it just seem like there’s more stuff going on because there are more people trying to tell us what’s going on? I guess if we didn’t have so much news I wouldn’t have so many things to make me wonder.

I wonder what this guy was thinking? “Man, I gotta get to court on that stolen car rap. How am I gonna get there? Hey, I know, I’ll steal a car! Brilliant!” How’d that turn out for you? Well, at least you went viral. You got that going for you.

I wonder why there are so many prescription drug commercials on U.S. television? Oh, wait, yeah, I remember now. Because the U.S. and New Zealand are the only places where it’s legal to advertise pharmaceuticals direct to patients through popular media. And there’s only 4.7 million people in New Zealand. Nothing improves your ROI on that new scrip drug like a flashy U.S. television add campaign that panders to people’s fears and vanity. I wonder what would happen to the U.S. advertising industry if pharma adds and political adds were banned? Hmm.

I wonder why this is even allowed to happen. A public University health system says “We want you to have the best health care you’re willing to pay for. And if you can pay for our concierge plan, you’ll get yours first!” This should be illegal. Health is a basic human right. Like air. I wonder when someone will start selling that?

I wonder who thought we needed this ranking? North Dakota is the “Drunkest State in the U.S.” The population of North Dakota was 755,393 in 2017. I wonder if they’re all drunk?

I wonder why this post turned into Clint Eastwood in Gran Torino. “Get off my lawn!”
