Somebody, for reasons that I hope involve severe mental retardation, has
paid more than $1500
for a piece of concrete with an oil stain on it that looks a little bit like the face of Jesus Christ.
Speaking of Jesus Christ, that’s exactly what I said to myself when I watched
about a Chinese grocery store that has installed rail cars so passengers won’t have to walk while they shop. I’ve never shopped in China, but how stressful can a stroll through the frozen foods section really be? And who, aside from the folks who are building these things, is hoping that they catch on? Are we not lazy enough as it is, and aren’t we, at least according to the media, supposed to be battling an obesity epidemic or something? Now and then I wonder if we should require everyone to
look up the meaning of the word progress
at least once a year and reflect for a bit on the spirit of it.
