Andy Warhol once said, “People are always so boring when they band together. You have to be alone to develop all the idiosyncrasies that make a person interesting.”

Do you agree? I agree. Of course, there’s a catch-22 in there somewhere. A non-joiner may become a wildly fascinating human….but since s/he is a non-joiner, will anyone ever truly know s/he is wildly fascinating? If a tree falls in the woods and no one is there to hear, does it really make a sound?

Alice Thomas Ellis said, “There is no reciprocity. Men love women, women love children, children love hamsters.”

Do you agree with that one? I don’t, even though it makes me chuckle. I googled Alice, and I think she was a tad ill-disposed. Don’t listen to her.

Aldous Huxley shared, “An intellectual is a person who has discovered something more interesting than sex.”

Agree? Disagree? Hmmmmmm. I…..think I must….disagree, if only by reason of semantics. Sex and intellect have too much to do with mood. At times I might be more interested in some cerebral topic than sex, but — given another frame of mind — I’d chuck Einstein and his buds out on their intellectual asses in favor of a great ….. ahem.

Anyway.

While you’re pondering those thoughts, ponder another — what’s the gizmo at right made to do?
