I have actually had people ask me why they don’t have that many friends. How do you answer that? Do you tell them that they talk too much? Can I point out that they are abrasive and annoying at times? I’m not a mean person at all…okay, at times I can be, but when it’s a serious question I find myself curious how to answer it.

Alright, it isn’t nice. I know. The fact is that anyone that knows me will say I’m opinionated on many subjects. The fact is, I do tend to make jokes and pick on people, such as those that call themselves vegans. To those that are living under a rock, vegans are people that eat absolutely no meat, no eggs, no milk, no butter or cheese. These individuals do it for a variety of reasons. They do it for health and spiritual reasons. They also do it because they are disgusted with how modern animals are treated in pens and slaughterhouses. Continue reading

Encyclopedia Crawford Knows All: Don’t Worry, It’s Good For You!

This is not a pro smoking schtick. Actually, I don’t smoke, never really liked it. The fact is that as our nation grows, it seems more and more laws are put in place to, “save ourselves” from…well, ourselves. The fact is, I just like how they always seem to find one culprit, one, “bad guy,” and force everyone to believe it. The fact is, I know smoking is bad. People have known that well over a century now. There is a reason that in the 1920s and earlier, cigarettes were called cancer sticks. Continue reading

Encyclopedia Crawford Knows All: The Right To Bear Arms…Brought Up At A Cookout?

2010-09-01-bear

This isn’t a typical post. It is however one that falls under entertainment, as it is entertaining to watch people argue over things. As mentioned before, it is amusing to watch people argue almost to the point of fighting over things such as politics. As long as it remains civil, it is okay. This particular argument happened at a relaxed Sunday afternoon cookout between two individuals that will remain nameless, just call them Frick and Frack. The main point was gun control. It is most interesting that both had very good points, yet neither were able to back off or give an inch of concession. This small argument is actually a perfect example of the larger scale problem, that people are unable to give an inch, and yet feel that they will make a difference in the greater scope of things.
