Simon’s Edge™ – Vol. 45

“Simon’s Edge,” an out-of-box and alternative collection of news link substantiated intelligence on the subjects of climate change, weather volatility, the light & dark side of advancing technology, financial investments, commodities, current or pending socio-economic crises, and health-related risks/natural medicine. Backed by science, intelligent theory and a plan, the goal of sharing these issues, ideas, potential “Black Swans” and insights contained herein is to help Bulldog Pundit readers gain an ‘edge’ in the onslaught of news from around the world.

Permit me to ask you a question:  do you ever write down your thoughts?  Not the ‘little stuff’ but the potential big ‘forks in the road’.  Journaling or sketching-out potential new paths can be very enlightening because the process can help you make the best decision(s), particularly when the amount of detail can become at times overwhelming.

ARE YOU A LEAD FOOT?  YOU NEED TRAPSTER 
I used to speed a lot, but now with 2 kids, I look for eagles rather than pump the pedal.  Trapster is a cell-phone social network that allows motorists to hook up with each other!

GET IN THE HABIT OF TEASING YOUR BRAIN 

A clerk at a butcher shop stands five feet ten inches tall and wears size 13 sneakers. What does he weigh?  Now personally, I’m plain awful at these brainteasers, but you just might get all ten right.  No peeking!

ARE YOU EVER ‘CAUGHT-UP’ ON SOCIAL MEDIA?
When parents are tweeting instead of listening to their kids speak about their day, I say the i-social world has gone a bit around the bend.  But check out this complex chart and see what you may be i-missing.

LOTS OF “IF’S” BUT LOTS OF WISHFUL THINKING TOO.
From downgraded credit ratings to increasing civil unrest, millions of people in Europe are starting to realize that a “Euro” is not necessarily always going to be a “Euro” and they are starting to panic.

ARE THEY JUST SYMBOLS, OR SHOULD WE EXPLORE FURTHER?
A woman riding a beast means what?  The art inside the World Bank HQ is certainly interesting.  And how about that art at DIA?  And you know what ‘Novus Ordo Seclorum’ means, right?

Look, I can appreciate ‘different’ art on the wall, but I would really like to know WHY Denver International Airport decided on displaying some of the images at the 5th link above rather than something more positive.  One thing is for sure … don’t let the negativities in the world get you down.  Create your own utopia.  Surround yourself with positive energies.  Do your own ‘backyard weeding’ on a spiritual path, and if anyone tells you to stop questioning things, tell ‘em to invite a wasp to sit on their tongue (and have a nice day).

Keep it positive, but stand your ground, AND make all major decisions intuitively!
