Out of the Blue

We recently made a small change to our coffee routine that has turned out more helpful than I expected. During a recent shopping trip our big box store was out of the big bags of Starbucks French Roast coffee beans, so we got some house blend. Not surprisingly, the coffee tasted a bit less robust at first. But I it was a surprise that I was able to adjust so quickly, as it tastes perfectly fine to me now. So I'm viewing this as good news, because I was used to finding coffee other than my own less satisfying too. But now that I've made my adjustment, this will go a lot better for me. I'm sure I'll still prefer my own over the coffee most places make, but I expect to like coffee on the go a lot better now.

If the nukes flew tomorrow, would you want to be among the survivors? I'm conflicted. On the one hand dying is something I do not fear and doing so would probably save me some suffering in the aftermath. On the other hand, I'd kind of like to see if any of the books/movies of post-apocalyptic worlds came any where close to what actually happens.

Human nature does seem to have a self destruct streak in it. Assuming there are other intelligent civilizations in the galaxy I wonder how common that is. There is plenty to point at and say, "That's not a good sign." Between various warring states, the danger of a nuclear exchange, the danger of global warming, and the seeming increase in general political conflict within many nations, only the greatest optimists could find a "good side". All that said, nothing is certain. I could believe there would be some kind of civilization devastating apocalypse in the next 100 years. I could also believe we will still be "going strong" 500 years from now. Only time will tell...
