But it keeps making the rounds. The main problem I have with it is that as true as some of the expressed sentiments may be, who really gives a shit? I hope I never sound like that. Nothing you see on the Internet is mine unless it came from one of my albums, books, HBO shows, or appeared on my website.
A Message by George Carlin: The Paradox of our Time The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings, but shorter tempers; wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less; we buy more, but enjoy it less. We have bigger houses and smaller families; more conveniences, but less time; We have more degrees, but less sense; more knowledge, but less judgment; more experts, but more problems; more medicine, but less wellness.
We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry too quickly, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too seldom, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.
We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often. We write more, but learn less.
We plan more, but accomplish less. We build more computers to hold more information to produce more copies than ever, but have less communication. These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion; tall men, and short character; steep profits, and shallow relationships.
These are the times of world peace, but domestic warfare; more leisure, but less fun; more kinds of food, but less nutrition. These are days of two incomes, but more divorce; of fancier houses, but broken homes.
These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throw-away morality, one-night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the show window and nothing in the stockroom; a time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete.
That essay has since spread far and wide and has commonly been attributed to a variety authors, including comedian George Carlin, an unnamed Columbine High School student, the Dalai Lama, and that most prolific of scribes, Anonymous. Carlin himself died in June Credit belongs to Dr. We have taller buildings but shorter tempers; wider freeways but narrower viewpoints; we spend more but have less; we buy more but enjoy it less; we have bigger houses and smaller families; more conveniences, yet less time; we have more degrees but less sense; more knowledge but less judgement; more experts, yet more problems; we have more gadgets but less satisfaction; more medicine, yet less wellness; we take more vitamins but see fewer results.
We drink too much; smoke too much; spend too recklessly; laugh too little; drive too fast; get too angry quickly; stay up too late; get up too tired; read too seldom; watch TV too much and pray too seldom.
We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values; we fly in faster planes to arrive there quicker, to do less and return sooner; we sign more contracts only to realize fewer profits; we talk too much; love too seldom and lie too often.
We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but have less communication; drive smaller cars that have bigger problems; build larger factories that produce less. These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion; tall men, but short character; steep in profits, but shallow relationships.

It is a time when there is much in the show window and nothing in the stock room. Indeed, these are the times! The killings at Columbine shook us deeply, leaving behind a nation of survivors looking for the one set of answers which could begin to explain the horrifically inexplicable.
Having this essay flow from the pen of an unnamed student who bore witness to this unspeakable act of violence made sense: Overlake Christian Press, Rock: Rock, form of popular music that emerged in the s.
It is certainly arguable that by the end of the 20th century rock was the world’s dominant form of popular music. Originating in the United States in the s, it spread to other English-speaking countries and across Europe in the ’60s, and by.
TAIPEI — China’s protests this month over a surge in relations between its rival Taiwan and the United States may prompt eventual retaliation by nervous officials in Beijing, analysts say.
This time, Trump Derangement Syndrome is getting a bad rap. Paranoids have real enemies and leftists whose heads are exploding over the president’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme. The most well studied so far include: Oleuropein, Hydroxytyrosol & Tyrosol Oleuropein The biggest key to olive leaf is a phytochemical compound called Oleuropein.
Oleuropein is the major phenolic constituent of the olive leaf (Olea europaea) and it is also present in olive oil and fruit. This inconsistency between simple and complex reaction times leads to a Reaction Time Paradox.
The Reaction Time Paradox The fact that simple and complex reaction times do not compare to each other isn’t bad unless the mistake is .
Time. Time is what a clock is used to measure. Information about time tells the durations of events, and when they occur, and which events happen before which others, so time has a very significant role in the universe's organization.
