What’s logic got to do with it!

There are certain situations/events in life where logic is simply thrown out the window. Not that I rely on logic for stability, but it is nice when you can see a basis for reasoning. Now these events are normally on a whim and will usually eventuate, if at all, with very minimal consequences in relation to the course of progression of your life. Yet still on reflection, feelings of stupidity seem just as painful as when first experienced.


There are a lot of different factors that effect ones logic; emotions, situations, people and to an extent life itself. There sadly is no remote control to ‘reverse’ such events and so we must accept/suppress these memories and move on.


I have many events that I mortally regret, these are common knowledge and became a great pass time for a section of my friends to bring up during one of there favourite games “Hey Paul, remember that time….”


- Softball

- Leep Frog

- Chair isn’t there

- 3D

- Balls (interesting choice of word; just imagine a montage of events where sport balls would hit me in the face, over and over and over again)

- ect…


Long story short, my high school life was merely a serious of unfortunate events, separated briefly by very little education. Which although topical and entertaining to others, has led me to the drink on more than one occasion.


Question: (Off the topic, but on the subject)


What’s the point of logic if it’s not logical?


Some people hold onto their notions of logic even when they know it’s no longer true. Just because they have had that concept for an extended period of time doesn’t give validity to its argument. – This person knows who they are and should change their point of view.


Till next we meet,

    Ah, high school.

    My experiences at high school were also a 'series of unfortunate events', as you so eloquently put it.

    Take your ball-in-the-face montage, substitute the ball with a variety of foodstuffs, and you pretty much have the sum total of all my high school experiences right there.

    Hmm.. interesting.

    That's it - that's my comment lol.

    Nah I must say I'm not familiar with a few of those apparently embarrassing stories. Guess word of mouth isn't as powerful as your previous post suggested! :P
