I CANNOT BE LEFT UNATTENDED FOR A SINGLE WEEKEND.
Obviously.

Imagine my delight when the Mecklenburg PD erected this digital reminder at the entrance of my very quiet friendly complex that we are, IN FACT, a citizen against citizen state in these here Americas!

It was my duty as a No Agenda human resource to take photos of both the front:



And back:
(You know, to get the detail for to see if I could possibly hack this baby into a ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE warning like all the cool kids are doing)



Imagine my surprise! The back of the unit had a running video camera capturing everyone’s license plate as they entered the complex.
I did what every other freedom loving American would do.
I flipped it off!

This of course put me on HIGH ALERT with our on-site security ninjas and I was followed all the way to my unit by our very own George Zimmerman. Oh yeah. He wanted me to be fully aware he saw EVERYTHING I did in that PUBLIC SPACE.
Because shame on me! Right?

Right back atcha, George!



I just wanted to have fun with the goddamned sign because I had the perfect jingle!
and no, you probably won’t get that catchy tune out of your head

YOU’RE WELCOME!





Now, how do we HACK this baby????
I’ve got a full 24 hours before a sensible adult returns!

Yes I want in on his mess!
John releases the No Agenda newsletter on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Even after TWO OTHER SETS OF EYES give it a look-see before he releases it into the wind (it only feels that way)
I still find mistakes….. ugh. It’s infuriating!

But mostly I like that I sometimes have John C Dvorak's attention. (Thank you for your courage)

… so I will FINALLY expect to hear from you today, John?

Why Writing By Hand Could Make You Smarter
"Scientists are discovering that learning cursive is an important tool for cognitive development, particularly in training the brain to learn ’
functional specialization’—that is, the capacity for optimal efficiency. 
In the case of learning cursive writing, the brain develops functional specialization that integrates both sensation, movement control, and thinking. Brain imaging studies reveal that multiple areas of brain become co-activated during the learning of cursive writing of pseudo-letters, as opposed to typing or just visual practice.”

Such a wonderful article explaining even further (than the posted content) on WHY cursive actually IS an important lesson to learn. I’ve always felt this way just never had a way to put it into words.
TL;DR; Instead of testing students on knowledge, let’s go back to teaching them how to acquire knowledge.

Why Are We Here?

Do you think that bird sitting on that limb over there knows who is currently President of the United States?

Of course not, right?

This is my starting point for the universal question,”Why are we here?” We are simply not built to know. Unlike that bird, during this point on the timeline of ALL THINGS, we humans have evolved enough to be self aware.

Our desperation for understanding this universal question in order to feel complete and less alone is very strong.

Enter religions. All of them.

The creation and successfulness of religion and the belief in a higher power, to me, is an unproven blanket of hope that calms many cultures into believing they have that answer. Due to our acceptance of mortality, religion is a coping mechanism our primitive minds (in the picture of all things yet unseen) require in this phase of evolution in which we currently reside as the human race.

And I can both see and accept why religion is so important to so many.
