Default They walk among us...and vote!

A friend and co-worker once said this about a goof ball at work..."I'd like to wear his head for 15 minutes just to see what the world looks like through his eyes!"

I think this would be a good example from a post today. Sometimes I just can't fathom what goes through a person's mind.
I edited the picture to protect the innocent.
Although the picture may be hard to see, it is a huge stack of large pallets. There are two signs, on facing the road, and one facing the parking lot that Say "FREE". Adjacent to the pallets is a sign with the company's street address painted clearly for all passers-by to see.

Painful. I can understand the old adage about walking in someone's shoes but "looking through their eyes" not in that example.

Stay healthy.

I remember my government teacher in high school telling us about a poll taken among voters to see why they voted for a certain candidate. One woman`s reply was because her dog liked him. I`m not even sure how she knew that. Over 50 years later I still remember that. There should be an IQ requirement with voting rights and politicians should have to have a minimum 110 IQ too in my opinion. That might eliminate quite a few of them.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Not a fan of IQ tests to vote, but sure wouldn't mind making politicians pass a qualifier.

I don't know what I don't know...
