Kat pointed us to another journal because she was curious. Apparently someone got a hold of a $100 bill with some scribbling on it and wanted to know what the words were and Kat wanted to know too.
Now the original question about the bill was innocent enough, however, things went crazy immediately following the very first comment, which was basically, "....I've never even held a $100 bill!"
Read what happened then, folks. Read the immediate reply to that simple statement and subsequent replies, jumped conclusions, apologies, and the folks who jumped in before reading everything and thus failing to notice the apologies, etc. and how the original question was lost entirely until the TWENTY-FOURTH comment out of 40!!
You know, I really think it's time humanity started censoring their own brains and head back to the good old days when, "Think before you speak" was the wise mantra of the time. Of course, we'll need to update the saying....
"Think before you text/tweet/comment"
And you know...with all that's going in the world and in this country...the Mayan prediction of the end of the world in 2012 seems very...viable now. So the question becomes: How much can I cram into my life in the next year and what, 8 months? :)
I'm going to stop bypassing those Hostess Cupcakes and start actually buying them.... Take that, 2012!
