Oh Geez

This morning I realized that at any point, someone could misinterpret my name and think that I'm "Mr. Tea" and not Mr. T! I can't believe it took me so long to notice this. Thank God so far nobody has made that mistake, but just in case I've decided to start carrying around a selection of teas. Now if someone approaches me, I can have this exchange:

PERSON: Mr. T!
ME: Do you mean Mr. T like the letter or Mr. Tea like the drink?
PERSON: The drink!
ME: Oh. Yes, that's me, Mr. Tea. Would you care for some of my various teas?
[Here is where I would go on to describe the different flavors and medicinal powers of the teas I had with me. And guess what? Nobody would be the wiser!]

It's Been a While

Sorry for the delay! A few weeks ago my computer broke and I tried to fix it by (stupid me!) throwing it at things. And that didn't work, so next I tried throwing things at it. Then that didn't work. So then I tried throwing things at things, and I got so caught up in the fun of that, I forgot that my computer was broken and that I was standing in a bunch of broken glass. Because all of this happened... at the glass factory!

I Figured Out How to Improve Social Security

The answer was staring us in the face the whole time! Who pays into Social Security? People! And who receives benefits from Social Security? People! But has anybody brought up animals and trees? No! Which is why, when you factor in how many animals and trees there are, then you start to get a better picture. A comparison of equations might be helpful in making this more clear (if you don't like technical stuff, you should probably stop reading now):

Original Equation: P(people) + M(money) + S(social security) = S(social security)

New Equation: P(people) + M(money) + S(social security) + T(trees/large plants) + A(animals) + ST(small trees) + F(fish/creatures of the sea) = S(social security)

And when you look at it like that, you can see how we can improve Social Security!
