Atomic Fusion

It's a known fact that plants produce oxygen, trees being the most prolific.  But of course, plants die and trees are leafless in the middle of winter.  Doesn't there mean there is less oxygen in the air?  Now, there is the offset of plants in the other hemisphere being in season.  I still think there tends to be less breatheable air in the local atmosphere in the middle of winter, however far the oxygen may travel.  I wonder if this contributes to seasonal depression in some way, that there is actually less oxygen going around and it affects certain people who are more sensitive to it.

How hard is it to flip on one's turn signal?  I mean, c'mon!  And wear a seatbelt, darn it.

One of the things that really irritates me about some books, especially fantasy, is the insistence that evil is an integral part of "balance" and that its presence is actually a good thing.  I do not believe this, and I think if people weren't writing the Dragonlance Chronicles or whatever else from the comfort of their homes in the middle of the First World, they would have a different view of the subject.  If Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, Franco, Mao, and others are the product of "balance" in the universe, I wonder what the citizens under them would think if they were asked if those people's existence was all well and good?  In many of the books, it seems "evil" is just simple self-interest without considering others.  If the authors encountered true evil and had to undergo a bit of torture or experience rape just for one day, I don't think they would be so ready to make evil look so appealing.  That's why the Fall described in the Bible is such a tragedy -- evil is not the intended state of the universe, it is a horrible aberration.

When you put a subject line in a comment on LJ, the person replying to that comment will automatically get a "Re:" attached to it.  Why doesn't it do that if you put a title to the entry, like so that it would say "Re: Atomic Fusion" when you post a new comment to this particular entry?  Especially when you post more than one entry in a day, it would be a little convenient to be able to look at your inbox and know which one the message pertains to right off the bat.

I really need to clean out my trumpet, I've been putting that off for far too long.  I miss playing it, but for some odd reason, I feel embarrassed by the idea of practicing while my parents are around.  Maybe it's because I haven't played regularly since high school.  Not only would I stink at it at first, but I think it would feel too much like I'm moving backward with my life.  I know I would enjoy playing again, yet this weird reluctance comes over me when I think about it.  Strange.

Stuff and things

I really hope you are not that sensitive to a decrease in the local oxygen levels... ;) And most people think the winter blues can be attributed to less sunlight (and vitamin D) - take your Centrum!

I signal and wear my seatbelt all the time. Do I get a prize?

Evil is bad... that's why they call it "Evil"....

Meh, I have no opinion on that topic. I guess I don't use LJ enough!

I TOTALLY agree with you about picking up an instrument again. I would only be comfortable sounding miserable if no one else could hear me. (And I mean no one! I feel embarrassed if I think the neighbors can hear me...)
