It’s time for another installment of…
John’s Questions on Modern Life
Some of these questions might get some people riled up. Please, try to keep in mind, these are just questions. I’m just putting them out there to hopefully get people thinking.

If you consume more than you produce, how does that make you feel?

If all of the people you care about didn’t exist, how would you live your life differently?
Why do you feel the need to go slower than the speed limit when I’m behind you, but faster than the speed limit when I try to pass you?
If you have to use turn signals to pass your driving test, why do so many people put so much effort into breaking themselves of that wonderful habit?

How much authority does it take to write a blog?
Cable, Virtual, Cyber, World Wide Web, the transfer from a world without internet into the fast paced world of living online has occurred mostly in my lifetime. I don’t know if I’m too old or too young, but a lot of the time it doesn’t make any sense to me. It’s getting harder to understand what’s real or true anymore. Some things are getting lost because they are hard to translate into pixels. This has led me to many questions about modern life. This is the first installment of what I hope will be a recurring blog feature.
