Random ThoughtsI just realized – this is the last edition of Random Thoughts for 2010!

….no pressure. Sheesh.

If you’re in the publishing industry, I think you should hire me to do your marketing.

How does one even break into that?  Where do the jobs get posted?

* * *

Subway!  We bake our bread fresh every day!

(Unless we make too much one day, then you’re gonna eat that old shit.)

Imagine if Superman had a kid.  Now, imagine if that kid were a girl!  Now, imagine ‘take your daughter to work day’ in Metropolis…

* * *

That reminds me – really, Power Girl is just Supergirl all grow’d up, right?  I mean – she’s Kara, but from one of those alternate DC Universes or something.  Anyway, what I want to know is this – if Supergirl is a teenager and Power Girl is a twenty-something, do all Kryptonian females find that their breasts triple in size from teens to twenty somethings, cuz – sheesh.

She has to have back problems too.

Or maybe Kryptonian spines and muscles can handle the extra weight?

but – hold on – wouldn’t Kryptonian breasts be affected by the yellow sun just like the rest of her?  So, really, Kryptonian breasts would be proportional to Kryptonian powers and spines and muscles and stuff.

I go back to my original thought on the subject – the girl has to have back problems.

* * *

Enough about breasts.

Family sitting across from me eating their lunch.  Mom, dad, older teenage daughter.  Dad has his nose in a paper, daughter is staring out the window, mom is eating quietly.

This somehow makes me sad.

* * *

We should have domesticated robots by now.

I mean, honestly – we have computers in our phones that are a thousand times more powerful than the 1st home pc I used waaaaaay back in the early 80’s, so the computational power is there.

Rechargeable batteries have come a long way – so we could just plug em into the wall at night.

Voice recognition software is leaps and bounds above where it began.

Why don’t we have domesticated robots?  They wouldn’t need to be Commander Data level of sophistication – just, “Wash the dishes.” or “Cook my dinner.”

Think of it!  A world without buttons…

* * *

…that family just finished eating pretty much at the same time, got up and left without saying a word.

Maybe they’re telepaths!

Subway sandwich guy: I’ve seen you in here a lot lately and you always sit there with your laptop typing away – what are you doing?

Me: I’m afraid that’s classified.

Subway sandwich guy: *blink-blink*

* * *

*my phone rings, I answer it*

Me: Hello?

Them: 42″ Plasma tv on sale for $463.

Me: …is this nerd phone sex?  Do you have HDMI inputs?  Describe them to me…

    Now the poor Subway guy is going to be thinking that you’re from corporate and watching his every move.

      OR, he’s going to think I’m up to something. Like James Bond. Only with a computer.
