My county had severe thunderstorm warnings posted last night. And they must have been right, because the lightning was bright and the thunder was loud. We even got some gusty winds, but, but , but, NO RAIN!!! It was so close I could taste it, well, maybe just smell it. Hey, I did see the lightning and hear the thunder. As loud as the thunder was, it had to have been within a couple of miles from here, all to my north.
You do know that it takes sound an average of almost four and three quarters (4.75) seconds to travel a mile. To make things simpler, just figure on 5 seconds per mile. When you see the flash, start counting 1001, 1002, 1003, 1004, 1005, etc until you hear the crash of thunder. That will give you an estimate of how far away the lightning strike was. This is not accurate, but will give you a pretty good idea of how far away the storm is. Keep checking the time between flashes and sounds and you can also determine if the storm is moving toward you or away.
Yes, I know you are getting sick of me talking about not having any rain, especially when some of you are getting flooded. So, being a nice and a sensitive man, I will change the subject. Let me see, what should I wonder about now? ? ?
OK, how about this. Could they arrest someone for attempted murder if they failed at their own suicide? No, I am not thinking of suicide, especially not for me. I bet there is no loop-hole in the law to exclude attempted suicide from the charge of attempted murder. Anybody out there with a law background care to comment or answer my question?
Heck, there is a bushel full of laws out there where “Big Brother” tries to protect us from ourselves. Don’t get me started on that subject, you may not like what I have to say and it raises my blood pressure to very dangerous levels. It seems to me that just to prove that they did something, politicians just have to create stupid and obsessive laws to take care of their constituents, because they believe them to be too stupid to take care of themselves. Guess maybe they are, since they elected the people who make the laws.
Enough said, don’t want to ruin a beautiful bright day with clear blue skies.
You all have a nice day now, you hear?
