I was thinking about a statement that never made much sense until recently.
"Does a tree falling in the woods make a sound, if no one is there to hear it?"
At first, I was insulted by that question. Of course it makes a sound. Being a child raised by intelligent parents, I learned that the tree will displace air and even the impact will cause sound waves to disrupt the earth. It doesn't matter if a human or even a squirrel is around to hear it.
As I grow older, I wonder what my impact will be on the world. I stopped waiting for that call from the President asking me to consult on Cobra, the most ruthless terrorist organization ever to try and rule the world. Looking for seriously to the future, what can we hope to accomplish that is worth a damn? What will we do that will merit someone telling our story? Who will care if I am gone?
Am I the tree that will fall in the woods with no one to hear?
Deep thoughts and hopefully I have not brought you all down.
In closing here is some awesome shit on unicorns.
