Caution Wins

Nearly every situation, good or bad, has a logical cause. It takes an attuned person to see this cause and its effects, but a lot of it is really common sense. People complain of bad luck, but I believe a lot of this "luck" is due to not paying attention. Perhaps people aren't cautious enough, which I don't understand. How can one not be cautious when going through life? Do they not care about living or dying? This baffles me. When I listen to news about how someone died, for the most part I think to myself "That could have been easily avoided. Why didn't they?"

I get the feeling that people simply lack common sense. What a sad thing for natural selection to forget.

The Things that Night is Made of

I hate nightmares...the poisonous frog that attempts to commit suicide by forcing itself down my throat, the invisible leprechaun that throws knives at me, the assassin that unleashes skin-borrowing worms that carry tiny explosives. How is it that my mind comes up with things like this? Shouldn't it be sleeping instead of creating horrors?
