Chill N Grill
Today is the first day of spring. Furthermore, it is the day Chill N Grill opens. Yes, there is snow on the ground and you can get ice cream at Chill N Grill.
Elizabethe and I have missed their opening day until today. We dropped in for ice cream.
I know in the past their opening day has been warmer, but this storm was a freak storm. We weren’t the only ones buying ice cream when it is 44F outside. They had a steady in flux of customers. I’m sure they will be busy tonight.
It is silliness when people post unscientific stuff on Facebook especially when they, themselves, can’t tell you the difference between an anion and a cation. Such is the case with an argument on a friend’s timeline.
The article posted was good, but when a man with an advanced degree commented on the subject – he being a subject matter expert on the subject – a lady jumped in and called him some foul names. (Perhaps she is angry that he made it through 7+ years of college and she barely made it through high school. Who knows.)
Because of the heightened awareness, I saw someone else posting links to stupid stuff (that’s what I call it.) Elizabethe knows the person better than I do and she basically said the person wasn’t very bright. That explains a lot.
A lot of websites have stuff like this garbage at the bottom…
When I see it I close the window. What legitimate site has this sort of stuff?
I’ve noticed many of these sites talk about erroneous things like, “Diet soda can make you fat”, or, “These 5 foods will kill you”, or on the political side, “Hillary said this and then gets destroyed”, or “Trump claimed this, but this guy put him in his place”, etc. It’s all garbage.
It really isn’t so silly. One of the magazines I read… I think it was Forbes… talked about how the Internet is making people stupid. Let’s suppose someone claims diet soda can make you fat. Do they really understand what causes weight gain? And, if they did, then how does zero calories cause someone to gain weight? The point is, it doesn’t.
Another one claimed a device can cut your electric bill by simply plugging it in to a wall socket. Uh… no. You there is no magic device that when plugged in to a socket will reduce your electrical usage.
That’s the type of lunacy these sites spew.
I’ve learned by sad experience there is no use trying to educate these people. You have to feel bad for them because one of these days they are going to take some herbal cure for having poisoned themselves with some holistic drug and they are going to die. Actually, it probably happens more than we think.
