Collective Minds

Ever wonder why sometimes there are similar albums, movies, and books that come out at the same time?
I do.
Sure some of it is, “Hey I heard that so and so is making a movie about a space blob that comes to Earth to eat all the jelly. That sounds like a hit. Lets make a movie about a space blob that comes to Earth to eat all the peanut butter.”
So yes, some of it is ride the bandwagon lets rip everyone off because we have no ideas of our own.
However some of it isn’t. So does it come down to coincidence? Perhaps.
Maybe there’s something else going on. Does humanity share a consciousness? If so is there a universal unconscious idea bank is it possible that we occasionally withdraw the same ideas at the same moment?
My thinking is yes we do.
Yours in shared thought,

A Rio Santos Adventure

Wherever there is evil, wherever injustice runs rampant, wherever foul villains perform their foul smelling deeds and as long as there are non mutant tacos to be eaten Rio Santos, will be there.
One morning while I was eating a cherry cheese burrito my trusty canine companion Chi Chi received a call on his cell phone telling us that Timmy was trapped down the well. I didn’t know of anyone by the name of Timmy but saving little boys sounds like the heroic thing to do. Besides children often have grateful attractive mothers. Or sometimes mothers who are skilled in the culinary arts. Occasionally I find both but that’s very rare.
Chi Chi and I raced to the well only to find there wasn’t a well so there was obviously no little boy that was waiting to be rescued. The whole thing had been a clever ruse used by my diabolical enemy, The Mutant Taco. He had lured me to that spot to trap me with his radioactive chili. Foolishly the Mutant Taco hadn’t counted on my astounding eating powers and I devoured his radioactive chili which was very tasty though strangely lacking in garlic.
Chi Chi and I quickly overpowered the Mutant Taco and turned him over to the authorities
That is how I Rio Santos saved the world for the first time that day.
Sincerely yours,
Rio Santos (The World’s Greatest Masked Super Hero Wrestler)

Blogging about Substance

So what do we do with our lives?
            We complain that we age when others die far before their time. So why aren’t we proud that we’ve reached further than others who would have been happy to be where we are?
            We look to guidance for others who are just as blind and searching as ourselves. We are lighthouses with burnt out light bulbs.
            We complain about the things that we hate instead of spending our time treasuring the things we love.
            Time to try something new.

Yours in self-reflecting stupidity,
Count Robot
