Gifted Insight

The beauty of this blog is that it's here for a multitude of reasons. People from all over the world come to Corky's log to learn about Bingo, Bongo, Bango, and Irving. Miscreants also come, almost daily, to learn how to get high from Benadryl. 

Yes, sometimes I use the log to reflect on my life. Other times I use it to flush out the poison in my head so I can be somewhat of a productive human being. Rarely do I use the content here to spank my bird. There are far better places to go on the Internet for that sort of thing. I've thought about adding that component to the log once or twice though...

There are times when I think the World would benefit from my gifted insight. Did you know that there are persons other than me who think about Gilligan's Island almost every day? That's pretty fucking wild.

Lately Ive been stroking my bird and thinking about how different folks cope with life. Life aint always easy obviously. Some people find it necessary to join a religion in order to deal. Some think that money is the end all be all. Some drink, drug or kill. Some blow their heads off and some just fuck.

For me it always comes back to Star Trek. It's got just enough religion, philosophy, martial arts, superb acting, and good storytelling to inspire me to go forward. One day the world will get it right. Until then I will sit patiently and continue to watch the original 79.

From time to time I'll also get on here and give you a much needed push in the right direction. After all, It's the very least I can do.

"Let me help." A hundred years or so from now, I believe, a famous novelist will write a classic using that theme. He'll recommend those three words over "I love you."

You might be right.

The world at that future time looked equal for all humanoid speies and food was plentiful and there wasn't a lot of "striving" and extremely rich or poor. As far as I remember capitalism and other poltical systems were not evident and religion was not touted. Cultures were distinct but not obviously competitive. Individuals were sometimes evil but whole populations were not.
