The slippery slope

Today, I passed a megachurch that appeared to have a giant slide in the middle of it.

I like to think that the top of the slide was labelled “Heaven” and the bottom of the slide was labelled “Hell.”

That way the slide would teach children that getting to Heaven requires a hard, purposeful climb and that any slip would result in them hurtling downward towards eternal damnation.

On the other hand, it would probably just make the kids think that going to Hell was fast, fun, and made you shout, “Wheeeeeeeeeeee!”

Brainstorming is all wet

As someone who has always worked in creative industries, I’m not surprised that a new survey says that brainstorming sucks. Creatives have always known this. It’s only the non-creative people around them who insist that brainstorming is useful.

On the other hand, having a trusted someone to bounce ideas off of ?

That can definitely result in catching lighting in a bottle.

Considering how the media works nowadays, I’m shocked that the headline for this article wasn’t, “Trump threatens 11-year-old girl”

From a surprisingly positive article about President Trump in The Atlantic:

Last July, King took his 11-year-old granddaughter to the White House to watch Trump sign a health-care bill for the first responders to the September 11 terrorist attacks. After the ceremony, Trump scribbled his spiky signature on the speech he had just delivered; gave it to the girl; “put on this angry, stern look; and said, If I find this on eBay tonight, I’m coming after you,” King recalled.
