LINN: Random Thoughts For This Week

Written by Andrew Linn on September 15, 2021

Here is a list of random thoughts I have for this week.

  • If someone insults Joe Biden, are they subject to prosecution?
  • Why do some schools refer to their libraries as “media centers”?
  • Why do some women have bangs as part of their hairstyles? Are they ashamed of their foreheads?
  • Why is it that in some school systems students are to take these math classes in this order: Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II?  Whatever happened to taking the math classes in this order:  Algebra I, Algebra II, and Geometry?
  • Is there any point to AP classes in high school, other than obtaining college credit?
  • Why is Trigonometry sometimes taught with Algebra? Shouldn’t it be taught as a separate subject, or taught alongside Calculus (e.g. Trigonometry & Calculus)?
  • Why is Astronomy sometimes taught with Physics? Shouldn’t it be taught as a separate subject?
  • Why is “Global Studies” sometimes referred to as “Humanities”?
  • Why can’t the NBA, NFL, MLB, etc. revert to their policy of requiring all potential draftees to graduate from their respective colleges or universities?
  • Why are some restaurants fixing their chicken sandwiches with butter and pickles? Whatever happened to a chicken sandwich having lettuce, tomato, and mayonnaise or ranch sauce (and possibly bacon and either Swiss, mozzarella, parmesan, or pepper jack cheese)?
  • Why do some colleges or universities schedule courses at unusual times, e.g. from 10:50 to 12:05, instead of 11:00 to 12:15?
  • Why can’t the cable companies (and the satellite companies for that matter) let their consumers decide which channels they want, and therefore pay less for their service each month? And why do the cable rates keep increasing, especially since fewer people are relying on cable?
  • Why do some books have a series of introductory sections (i.e. introductions, prefaces, prologues, forewords, author’s notes, editor’s notes, etc.) which sometimes can be a chapter’s worth or even several chapter’s worth of reading? The same scenario can be asked regarding conclusions, summaries, epilogues, etc.
  • Why do some people let their dogs run around the neighborhood when they let them out, instead of walking their dogs by means of a leash or having a fence around their yard? Don’t they realize by letting the dog(s) roam through the neighborhood, the pack instinct takes over, and then the dogs consider the entire neighborhood to be their territory?
  • What is the punishment for insubordination within a church, especially if it is someone who is just a regular attendee as opposed to someone who is employed at that church?
