Look back at the impossible to improve on the future
As we enter a new decade, we can surely learn from the past decade and make everything better in the future, right?
Uh, you wanna hold your breath on that one?
Albert Einstein said: “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.
That means we’re all pretty much insane because if we like something enough we’ll keep trying it over and over until we succeed. I’m still thinking I could play golf well, someday.
Ha ha ha. Insane right?
So in order to help the masses improve in this decade, let’s take a quick look back at where we just came from. The decade of the 2010s is going to be most remembered for the impossible, which kept happening.
Yeah, it was a decade of impossible wins.
Every nightly newscast saying Trump can’t win, impossible.
LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers giving the city their first championship in 50 years, impossible again.
Then a couple months later, the Chicago Cubs win their first championship in 107 years against who? Cleveland.
Impossible and ironic. Whew!
You can picture bookies in Vegas drinking themselves into oblivion and probably betting on who would pass out first.
It was a decade where a picture of a Real Housewives Show with a lady screaming her head off is offset by a bored looking white cat. This has gone viral with a different wisecrack on every repost. This picture is now social media’s primary method of imparting wisdom to this generation.
A cat? Seriously?
“Baby Shark” became and still is the most annoying song since “Trololo” in the 1970s. And, in third place, “It’s a Small World.”
Now, don’t get me wrong. I love the ride at Disney, but after you finish that ride you can’t get the song out of your head.
The Baby Shark song is the same way. If aliens ever wanted to take over the earth, they wouldn’t need ray guns. All they would need to do is play nightly news broadcasts over and over again during the day and “Baby Shark” at night.
The population of the earth would pretty much surrender without a shot. So, remember the past decade and welcome to the new decade. Hopefully, you’ll be able to clearly see that 2020 can focus you on the future.
