An excerpt from Thomas Paine’s “Common sense”

A long habit of not thinking a thing wrong gives it a superficial appearance of being right and raises at first a formidable outcry in defence of custom. But the tumult soon subsides. Time makes more converts than reason.

Conspiracy theory videos

  1. A conspiracy theory video gets lowered down in the index because it is nonsense.
  2. The author of the video claims that it got lowered down because the conspirators want to hide the truth.

Florists

There is a strange job out there: the florist. Its definition is “a person that arranges and sells cut flowers”. The latter part is okay, but in this case florists would be flower vendors.

The only reason why florists have kept their jobs and not become artists is symbolisms. Apparently different combinations convey different meanings, so florists need to make sure I won’t offend the person I’m giving the flowers to. But the only people who know these meanings are, well, florists. Madness.

Florists should just make beautiful flower combinations, therefore becoming artists.

Bureaucracy

If it is possible to change a capital’s name in a day, anything is possible in eight days.

Take note, Brits.

Nationalities play

French people try to be like Italians, while Italians try to be like Americans.
