Rambling

I attended an event hosted by some government body recently, and it featured Google's Jolly Good Fellow. He seemed a pretty cool guy, humble and unassuming but probably terribly smart, as they all probably are at Google. During the event, he talked about how everyone in Google wants to change the world.

So, towards the end of the event, someone asked him what he was doing to change the world. He replied that he was trying to (and don't take this as a quote, because I do not have a perfect memory) promote mental fitness. If I remember correctly, he said that the key to this was meditation and that he hopes someday it will be as prevalent as physically working out to stay healthy. Like if you asked someone if they meditate, they would reply with "Well, of course. Duh." Then he said that this would holistically heal a lot of the world's existing problems. Like war would no longer exist if everyone just wanted peace.

Now, I just want to state for the record that I have nothing but respect for the first Singaporean to make it into Google, but I couldn't help but think of this Deep Thought by Jack Handey.
I can picture in my mind a world without war, a world without hate. And I can picture us attacking that world, because they'd never expect it.

Because I am easily sidetracked, I started reading more quotes while looking for that quote and this one by James Arthur Baldwin struck me in particular. Here's to all of you out there who like lecturing younger people but never do anything noteworthy or noble.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.



Today I went to eat at a restaurant and I saw that they were hiring "Customer Service Representatives". Wow. Cool title. I almost applied for the job. Then I looked at the picture underneath it. Oh. They meant "waiter".

I think the world could do with less of this sort of crap.
