Little Glass Roses

I just put a beetle out of its misery. It was half dead. I was sweeping the floor and didn't want to sweep up a half alive beetle. After I killed the beetle, I thought about whether or not the beetle had feared death. If I was to guess, I would say that the beetle didn't fear death.

I think maybe that's the main difference between humans and other sentient beings besides our appearance. Humans fear death. I think that maybe we evolved because of our fear of death. I think maybe our technology has advanced because of our fear of death.

Some guy just came in and asked if we had any little glass roses. We do not have any little glass roses. Then he asked me if I knew a place that sells little glass roses, repeating the words, "little glass roses," a second time. I said, "No."

I have no idea where they sell little glass roses. I have even less of an idea of where they sell them at 1:17 AM. I wonder why he needed glass roses at 1:17 AM. The man looked very sad after I told him I didn't know a place that sold little glass roses. He looked nervous.

I think the only positive thing about being suicidal is that you lose your fear of death. It is too bad that you're filled with overwhelming sadness when you're suicidal, or else you would have a really good time during what's possibly your final days.

It seems like most of human life is somehow a reaction to the fear of death. Technology and religion, interestingly, have been intertwined since the beginning of civilization. Ancient Egypt is a good example of this. Today, technology as a reaction to the fear of death is still not far from that.

That man asking for little glass roses at 1:17 am is a sad story. I feel sad for him. There is no way he found any little glass roses that night.

Josh: I think that technology these days might cause us to die sooner. Like our brains getting fried by cell phones and shit.

Hello, Gena. Thanks, Gena.

I don't understand why anyone would take antipsychotics if it wasn't theirs.

I understand why someone would take anti-anxiety pills if it wasn't theirs.

Blog name or the name of the blog entry?

Blog name would be strange.

Does Muppets in Space scare you too?

The movie is actually called, Muppets from Space, but I don't care.

I wonder if Leprechaun in Space is scary. I haven't seen it. It is probably a horrible movie.

The Leprechaun movies are masterpieces of horror. Puppet Master 1 thru 900 are excellent, too. I like the puppet with the big fists and the one with a drill bit on top of his head. Drill Head always goes for the eyes/head and genitals. How about the one that barfs up giant leeches or killer slugs or whatever? Pretty great.
