My name is Christian. Here you’ll find my thoughts ranging from my personal life, to politics, world news, and anything else that I might be interested in at the moment. I think I’ll let a quote speak for me and my views:
“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.”
– Lazarus Long in Time Enough For Love by Robert A. Heinlein
A bit of explanation about the site title and byline. The title, “Grok me?” is a reference to the 60’s novel “Stranger in a Strange Land” by Robert A. Heinlein (sense a trend here?). It means, ‘Do you understand me?’ However, it means that multiplied by 1000. To grok means to understand someone or something so thoroughly that you can’t help but love it like you love yourself.
The byline, again, is from another Heinlein book. The reason I use it for my blog is because it is something that needs to be remembered, and fought against. People should be educated on a broad range of issues, and be able to form their own opinions. In a sense, this belief is why I am blogging. I am exercising my right to form my own opinion.
About me again. I like to laugh.. a lot. As ee cummings once stated, “The most wasted of all days is the one without laughter.” Besides that, I don’t think I can objectively judge myself very well… So read my thoughts, ask questions, wonder why I am the way I am, and maybe you can do a better job of that then I can.
