The Thirty Second Philosophy … September 12, 2013

Jonathots Daily Blog

(2003)

fridgeWatching television yesterday, my favored program of the moment was suddenly interrupted by a testing of the Emergency Broadcasting System. It consisted of about thirty seconds of beeps and buzzes, totally destroying the dialogue of the show and making me wonder why such an intrusion was necessary.

But it did get me thinking: what if it ended up not being a test?

What if that broadcasting system leaped into my life to proclaim that a cataclysmic disaster was in the making? Yes–what if I was informed by the announcer that we had thirty seconds to live before an unexpected meteor struck the earth, a series of atomic bombs exploded or a tidal wave from an angry ocean suddenly blew across the mainland?

Just thirty seconds.

I thought to myself, what would I do with that portion? Then I amazed myself with a very quick answer.

Four things:

1. Thanks, God. (No need to get grumpy at that point, right? Atheism lacks promise.)

2. I love you all. (Getting picky over people seems a bit fruitless, too.)

3. I sure hope we’re right about that heaven thing. (Worse than dying in thirty seconds is the prospect of it being really, really permanent.)

4. You can have anything left in my refrigerator. (Honestly, there was some pretty good stuff in there … )

There you go. That’s what I came up with. After all, thirty seconds isn’t much, but it’s certainly sufficient to express gratitude to the Creator, have some appreciation for my fellow travelers, hope for the best and share my bologna.

As the Emergency Broadcasting System test ended, I was emerging from my bizarre musings when I paused and thought over my four selections prior to the Apocalypse. It was a pretty good list. Matter of fact, I’ve decided to adopt it in ALL aspects of my life–even when I’m not threatened by termination.

I shall dub it my “Thirty Second Philosophy,” but use it 24/7.

  • Thanks, God.
  • I love you all.
  • I sure hope we’re right about heaven.
  • And you are welcome to anything left over in my refrigerator.

  1. Article Source: a viral game app is not that much difficult.

    They can collect information about opinions and
    evaluation of their product. The player had his picture, albeit with a strange grimace and geeky affects.

  4. A former classroom assistant who allegedly
    made a sex tape with a Belfast schoolboy that ended up on a pornographic
    website could face up to five years in prison for ‘abuse of trust’ if convicted
    and charged.
    It’s understood the video footage, believed to happen to be captured
    by the set in Apr, has in latest months been viewed greater than 6,000 instances on a free
    internet site.

    full of graet images in the world.
