Anyway, I have started reading the blog posts on the Opinionated Man. Jason blogs about the harsh reality trying to offend everyone at least once. He rants and raves and I must say, on certain days it is refreshing to see another blogger rant.
I have published many rants. No, not here on this blog. Here, because a reporter thought it was cool to NOT do their research and then claim I wanted “to serve somewhat like the TV show “America’s Most Wanted.” As if!
And here, because people were starting to express really strange opinions online about what a president can and cannot do to stop executions. Here’s another one which can be summed up like this: Don’t tell me what to do! Get your own blog!
As you can see, I appreciate a good rant!
So, while scanning Jason’s blog I found this post: “If you could “uninvent” something what would it be?”
It got me thinking about a lot of things that I would gladly send back to the drawing board mainly to be deconstructed and eliminated for good. The comments below Jason’s post listed:
- beeping washing machines
- Windows 8
- corn syrup
- sliced bread
- and more
What would I add to that list? Well …
- I would uninvent the spiraling system that they use in public schools and allow teachers to cover one topic in-depth before moving on to the next. Just “touching on it” makes no sense to me. I say this as one who worked in higher education and as a parent.
- I would rewrite various criminal procedures to allow for post-conviction access to pre-trial evidence to permit testing with modern technology especially when dealing with capital punishment cases.
There is so much more. What would you uninvent or love to send back to the drawing board?
