Decode: (v) to translate data or a message from a code into the original language or form.
There actually was something called a “decoder ring.”
It was a little plastic ornament put into Cracker Jacks, for kids to place on a finger to make them believe they were decoding.
Candidly, I had no idea what “decoding” was.
But possessing the ring was still important.
As I become an adult (mainly confirmed by the number of my birthday parties), I realize that the whole Earth and everything around it and in it has a code. If you do not know how to decode it, you will begin to believe things at face value, or try to put faces on faceless values.
May I assist you with what I have garnered from having once owned a decoder ring?
When it comes to religion, if it doesn’t help people, make people better, make people think, make people feel or make people more generous, it is nothing but superstition or witchcraft.
In the realm of politics, if it doesn’t make people better, make them think, make them care for each other, improve their status and create equality, it is a really bad party, which will only make you drunk on your own ego.
If you’re talking about science, there’s only one thing to remember: every living thing will do whatever is necessary to continue to be living. A second thing could be added: every mystery to continue living is hidden somewhere in the rocks.
Customers are the little devils that make the business world work. Calling them little devils does not help. Treating them like little devils is even worse. Becoming a little devil to battle with them yourself could put you in jail.
And even though there are many subjects I could address, let me conclude with:
Romance ultimately is not about feelings, but instead, orgasms. To achieve orgasms, people have to cooperate with each other, which only makes the world a better place anyway.
I present this today just in case you did not get your decoder ring in your Cracker Jacks box.
If you did, I apologize for my presumption.
