A Silence Between Moments

Man. Nothing going on. This is like... abnormally quiet. Even the news have little interesting to comment on. Is this one of those quiet-before-the-storm type moments?

I keep wondering if someone's going to snap and drive through a crowded city street with a combine harvester. Literally paint the town red. Probably not, though. Those things are quite slow. Don't do turns so good, either. Most disgruntled farmers would probably use something that wouldn't make them look silly stuck in the entrance to a tunnel. Live. On CNN.

Also, I'm kind of hoping that me having these thoughts like this is just the morbid thoughts of a wannabe writer. It would be kind of disturbing to find out I'm visualizing these images as some kind of a, I dunno... need?

Alright, so there's ugliness and stupidity in humanity. So much so that I sometimes wonder if I'm a part of the same race I see destroying itself every day. And that sometimes, just sometimes, I kind of wish the stupidity our race is infested with could be wiped off the face of the planet. Possibly with a combine harvester.

Of course, then I realize that that would only add more ugly to an already messed-up species. And that even if people are less intelligent than myself (or the average bear), then that does not necessarily exclude them from humanity.

All you really need is politeness and a large heart. You take those things, and you show them to the rest of us. This is the only requirement.

Humanity. Are you a member?
