Why Is the Sky Blueon August 7, 2014 at 6:00 am
I know a lot of our readers are probably younger than us, so I think it’s time I dispense some sage advice that you all might have heard before but have not truly taken to heart. So come on, take an eSit on Pappy Tony’s eKnee (this is the internet you cannot actually sit on my knee, it does not work that way and I am sorry.)
Nobody knows what they’re doing. People who are older than you, they may know more than you, but they are clueless. Everything we know is built on the decaying infrastructure of dozens of generations before us. And the longer things go on, the more there is to know and the fewer people there are who actually know it. The average person truly “knows,” like, maybe two or three things. Everything else? Weird-ass cultural hand-me-downs.
We are all sad, stupid, ignorant people. So treat your neighbor with respect, because he’s just as dumb as you.
I googled all the questions (except the computers one). LOL
And a follow-up question: why is the sky NOT screwed and tattooed?
i knoqw how computers work. I spent 3 years in university just to find out – grass green, sky blue? dont know those ones, and I dont need to, its enough that they are green or blue … or sometimes grass is brownish yellow, and the sky red or grey doesn’t even matter
It’ll matter to you when the sky is all purple and there’s people running everywhere.
But you don’t know how to use a backspace key to fix a typo. Are you sure you know how computers work?
Ah, I see her father is a fellow Philosophy student like me, bullshiting his way through life.
I know that answer’s in the one physics class I slept through
Gee, maybe the depressingly accurate definition of society was in there too
maybe they’re connected…
Philosopher’s response: “There is no formal proof that “blue” or “green” exists!”
