Things I can no longer do

13 Dec

There was a time when I could do some of the things in this video.  There was never a time when I could do them all. But it’s uplifting and inspiring to see what some other people can do.

    Pretty awesome stuff! Great break from the humdrum. Ever follow Hans ‘No Way’ Rey?

      As an ex-Mountain Biker, I discovered his videos in ‘the circuit news magazines’ and his ‘Trials’ riding skills just blew me away! Like us, Al, he too can no longer do those things like he used to. The current crop of promotional videos he does for bike companies are too tame for me to suffer through, but if you can find any of his stuff from the 80s and early 90s, you’ll see what I mean. There’s damned good reason he earned the nick-name of ‘No Way’. This guy rode teensy alpaca trails in the Andes on sheer cliffs that scared the hell out me just watching the stinking video!

    Hi Adask! I’m ONLY 60 years old, won’t be 61 till March, AND I can “still” do those things!

    Of course, I couldn’t guarantee the outcome! (or that I’d even survive the first attempt) lol

    With all due respect, if you could do ANY ONE of those things, you’re ten times better than me. I wouldn’t be able to do ANY of them!

      Hi Ed,
      Good to hear from you. Shot any free throws lately? Did you get a Christmas card from Shaq?
      Drop me a line at, and we can figure out phones, etc.

    Dear Al,   First, before I get to the reason I am writing, I would like to thank you for all of the time and effort you put into the writing you do that educates, opens our minds, challenges our lives and entertains us.   It is refreshing and a pleasure to read your blog.  Where the hell do you get the time to write so much – I’m sure that your email volume must be high and that’s a burden in itself.   Thank you, thank you, thank you.   Now to my topic.   After reading Fiat Money Fools, I said to myself, “I would love to have a four or five page story/commentary/article that explains in as simple a format as possible, what is going on with our government, our money and the financial raping and enslavement of the American People.”  But it must be written in a style and format that the nay-sayers will finally stand up and take notice.  I am 61.  I live in a retirement community.  I have many friends to I would like to wake up.  Nearly everyone here lives on their retirement, investments, and pensions from working all of their lives.  Any mention of the things you write about and the other resources I receive by email every day, is taken as fools information; typically with, “you got that information from the Internet?”   Most of them can’t even comprehend the requirements of a simple contract, let alone understand how they are bamboozled every day with unrevealed contracts or commercial agreements (especially strong, and unrealistic one-sided agreements).   The document would be something similar to “Fun with Words & Phrases.”   Are you in agreement and do you have any ideas?  Maybe there is something that already exists (I mean besides the Constitution)?   Best regards,  Steve Rive

      Hi Steve,

      Thanks for all the compliments. I find the time to write for this blog because I live in poverty. I enjoy the “power of poverty” which is time. I don’t have a car, my rent is trivial. I don’t spend much on food, so I don’t need too much. Because I don’t spend much or need much, I don’t have to constantly scrambling to get mo’ money, mo’ money, mo’ money. I work part-time and I can support myself with less than 20 hours work each month. That leave me with about 150 hours a month to read, research, write and goof-off. I can thereby afford to spend a little more time and effort on this blog than most other bloggers.

      As for writing the great American essay on monetary foolishness, I don’t feel “called” to do so. At least not now. I don’t think your friends would want to read it, even if I could write it. Their problem is not that they can’t understand, but that they refuse to understand. Some are so confident in the pension programs that they contributed to for several decades, that they can’t believe any contrary opinions that suggest those programs are vulnerable. Others, I suspect,secretly understand that the pensions are vulnerable but don’t want to face of be reminded of their fears because they lack enough knowledge to know what to do next. Being afraid to consider any alternatives, they refuse to hear whatever people you like might try to tell them.

      Communication requires someone who wants to talk or write, and also, an audience who want to hear, consider, and possibly change. If it were possible to write a document that was so perfect that it would automatically convince any reader of whatever is being advocated, we’d all be Christians, or Muslims, or even atheists. No one has yet understood how to write a document that communicate to someone who refuses to understand.

      Thanks again for the compliments.

      Good Luck with that one, Steve! I have an ex-wife that asked me yesterday, “What don’t you like about Obama?” I had to ask my two boys (23 & 16), is she really that…”naiive?”

      Their answer: “YES!”

      I’ll be 61 in March, she just turned 51 last month!

      Some people just aren’t capable of comprehending that anything is wrong! (unless, of course, it’s my “ex-wife”…then she notices everything that is WRONG with ME!)
