Parents Should Not Feel Bad If They Can't Put Their Kids Through College

If you can’t put your kids through college, do not feel bad. Really! It’s a tough world and putting a child through college is a hard thing to do.
First of all, a parent should only be in charge to make sure their kids know about being healthy, having a roof, having food, having clothes, and, most of all, survival. Yes, parents should provide, but provide knowledge and experience as well.
If parents buy everything for their children, those children will have problems surviving later in life. Let your children work for their success.
Some parents feel bad because they can’t provide for their kid’s college. Guess what? There is no rule written anywhere that parents should put their kids through college, even if the parents had the money to do it.
If your kid wants to go to college, let them! If you want to help them, it’s all good! On the contrary, if you can’t help your kid with college, do not feel bad. If they cry about it, then you did something wrong as a parent.
Kids should be ready to take on the world themselves. That is the most important role of a parent––to get their kids ready for the world on their own. Kids that depend on their parents have obviously never been trained to take on the world. Oh yeah, it’s OK to help out your kids every once in a while, but know when its good to do it and when not to.
Too many kids nowadays are depending on their parents to put them through college. Guess what? Your parents worked their asses off all their lives to provide for their kids and to show their kids how to get by. That should be enough!

Why Do Ghosts Have Clothes?

Photo by Nebraska Oddfish from Flickr
To start off, I am a spiritual person. I’ve had my experience with the supernatural and have heard many stories that sound legit. However, I have a question, and I am sure this question has been asked before. If not, I don’t see why it hasn’t yet! 
Anyway, where do ghosts get their clothes? 

If a person dies, wouldn’t their spirit be naked. How do they acquire clothes? Is there a Gap store or a mall for spirits to go to and shop? Or, do they get stuck with the same clothing for their time in purgatory? What is the deal with ghosts having clothes!?

I thought I would share this thought that came to me when I was a child. I never asked my mother about this. For somehow, it would conflict with her beliefs or anyone’s beliefs. 

For the most part, male ghosts are seen in suits, maybe that's why there is this new tale about the Skinny Man who wears a black suit with a white shirt and a black tie. I would guess they are seen in black suits because that is the usual attire for a dead person when being buried. 
As for female ghost, the same. They are seen dresses which would be what a female dead person would be buried in. I don't know the deal, but the fact is that ghosts have clothes!!!!
I still think it’s a fair question and I would really like an answer. Otherwise, I’ll just have to wait.
What do you think?

It Was Meant To Be

Destiny is the outcome of actions that occurred in the past. However, when people say that “it was meant to be,” how do they know that it was meant to be? Why would they even say that? Like we don’t have a choice! 

Maybe, when one says “it was meant to be,” it means that because of your actions the outcome was the result. To me that makes better sense, than something that has already been written or meant for you without any choices. You following? 

Anyway, destiny is an outcome of choices. I believe that some of those choices lead people to their fate, meaning that they made bad choices and something bad happened to them because of their choices. 

If you ever say that God knows what is going to happen, I will argue with you. If God knows the future, why doesn’t he stop the pain and suffering that spreads throughout our planet. It’s BS! I have also heard that God knows the future but he still gives you free will; he just knows what you are going to choose, but he does not want to interfere. I guess that is a better way to explain it. Still, knowing the future is saying that everyone's lives is already played out. 

People’s actions affect the future and choices are always present by the gazillions in a day for one person. So, to know the future, is just BS for me! 

Because, if the future is predictable, exactly, then our lives have been written out for us, and it does not matter if you are good or evil. I believe people chose their lives. Anyway... What do you think?

The Promise My Cat Made

Photo by Bazooka Teaches: Actual photo of cat that made this promise to me
     I found this black cat, one day, inside a beer box in front of a dirty house. He was a kitten meowing at me as I was passing by. It was very hot that day, and he looked like he was near death—dirty, damped, thirsty, hungry, skinny. 
     When I looked down at this guy, he said to me, “If you take me, I promise I will make you the leader of the humans once I take over the World.” 
     I thought about it. 
     I looked at his condition and decided that if he managed to make it inside that box for as long as he has been in there, maybe... 
     So, I took him to live with me. Never had a pet until this guy came around. I decided to call him Chepe. 
     However, I’m starting to think, 15 years later, that all he likes to do is eat and sleep all day! 
     So much for the promise, huh!

Don't Feel Bad, Put Your Lazy Ass Kid to Work!

Modern parents are making a huge mistake by giving kids everything. I know some parents that are even scared to give their kids chores. Parents should never feel bad in giving kid chores. It teaches responsibility and develops a sense of pride.

Parents that give kids everything and do not put them to work are the worst parents ever. Now, giving your kids everything or a lot of things that one did not have as a kid is a great thing. However, kids need to learn that those things are deserved.

Again, some parents think they are the best parents in the world because they give their kids everything without any repercussions. Also, laziness must not be tolerated at any level. I am not saying to never let your kids rest! What I am saying to have chores for them. When they accomplish those things weekly or daily, they see why they have a cell phone, laptops, and awesome cable at home.

They see why parents will help them with their first car or help them with college. Take note that if you don't have money for your kids to go to college, do not be ashamed. Kids grow into adults and should be able to take care of themselves when the fly the nest. This would include paying for their own college through loans and grants. Heck, they can even get damn job, like I did!!

Anyway, stop doing everything for your kids! Let them handle their problems. Give them chores. Your kids are not royalty. If you raise them that way, they will be inept at just about everything. Do not teach them to spend money to have everything done for them. They need to learn basic skills to survive.

Book smarts only helps with titles and certificates. Intuition needs to be developed in other to progress in life. Also, don't spend a lot of money on sports or activities. Otherwise, they won't see that as a social event. Kick them out of the goddamn house for a change!! If they choose to stay indoor all day, give them chores. Keep them active!!!!!!

Shit, back in the days, people had kids to help in the farm, or help out the family. What the fuck happened!

If I Invented A Time Machine

If I had to invent a time machine, I would not invent one that would require to travel at fast speeds. For example, in the movie Back to the Future, a DeLorean car is converted into a time machine, and it has to go at 80-something miles per hour in order to jump through time. 

I would totally avoid that method. You know why? Well, if you are traveling at 80-something-mph and jump through time, you might run into a wall in the future or the past. Yes, run into a wall that was not there during your present time.
In fact, in the movie when Michael J. Fox takes the DeLorean through time, he actually runs into a scarecrow in the middle of a farm and then into the barn house. Later in the movie, he also runs into the movie theater. Well, if you saw the movie you would know what I'm talking about.

Worse yet, you can appear in the middle of a crowd with your 80-something-miles-per-hour DeLorean, and kill a boat load of people. Think about it!

If it was up to me, I’d do it just like Stewie from Family Guy. A steady time machine that will most likely not present any danger when jumping through time. Well, the only danger is to actually appear inside of a person or animal, which would be messy. 

Anyway, how would you do it?

Life is Good is Incorrect

Photo from Wikimedia Commons
The other day I saw a bumper sticker that said, “Life is Good.” I thought about that statement deeply and had to come to a disagreement with it.

See, life isn’t good for many. Tell that to half of the millions of kids dying of famine across the globe, and they will look at you like you’re a madman.

Tell that to all those people dying of diseases or cancer who are suffering in pain. You go up to them and tell them “life is good.”

While life “can” be good, life is not good in general when looking at the big picture. For the most part, a lot of Americans have a decent life, so that sticker can be very popular.

For me now, life is being nice to me; however, I am not going to go around saying “life is good” like some snobby prick. Why? Well, some people in this world, which would probably include almost half of them, are not seeing life being good.

“Life is good” is a false statement. I mean, has anyone ever seen the National Geographic Channel!? Mother nature is cruel and indifferent. Animals struggle for life every day!
That bumper sticker should say “Life is being nice to me” or "Life can be good." Another one could be “Life is good for me right now.”

Think about it! Instead, tell me what you think…
