When Being Boiled Alive Is Not Punishment Enough – IMRAN™

Why was he not BOILED alive for that? But he was then let out AGAIN to murder AGAIN?

I am sickened reading about this triple-murderer. Even a simple death penalty would not have been enough for his first murder!

Why was this man not fried for the first murder? Then he was let out and allowed to kill again…! Why was he not BOILED alive for that? But he was then let out AGAIN to murder AGAIN?

I generally do not support violence. But in this case I would not shed a single tear if the victims’ loved ones seek vengeance on the parole boards and judges who let this son of Satan continue living and being set free so he could continue taking lives.

Cancer, Life, Death, Cure, All Matters Of Timing & Society’s Priorities – IMRAN™

It made me think of how many people lost too young could be saved if money was invested in medical science and research instead of on the creation of death machines by governments and on even more frivolous things by individuals.

I have had family members die due to cancer in Pakistan. In the USA a girlfriend of mine died of cancer aged 30 nearly 25 years ago.

Ironically, it was exactly the kind of cancer the young lady in the story below was able to be saved from. “Experimental Cancer Therapy That Targets Genes Gives Patients Hope,” reports Washington Post.

A lot in life, disease, cure or death is a matter of genes and pure fate & luck. A random exposure to something can bring about the start of a deadly condition. An equally random or accidental event in a lab can find a miracle cure for deadly disease.

It made me think of how many people lost too young could be saved if money was invested in medical science and research instead of on the creation of death machines by governments and on even more frivolous things by individuals.

How great would it be if sleazy politicians did not yank away health insurance and medical benefits from the poor to give tax breaks to the already super-rich. I would love to pay lower taxes, but not if I know it came from leaving the poor and suffering to die for lack of money and insurance.

How wonderful would it be if the sickeningly rich people buying stupid and ugly paintings for $110 Million instead spent that money on hospitals and cancer research centers. I would be quite happy to see that even if they put their names on top of the buildings in gold letters with neon lights (though my sense of aesthetics would possibly require hospitalization).

Any doctors and healthcare professionals reading this, what do you think of this therapy? And others,including those who have lost someone to cancer, what do you think about my point above?

On Procrastination, 24+ Hours Awake Binges & TGIF Inspiration – IMRAN™

Forget doing better tomorrow.. Make the rest of today, make the rest of this hour, even make this minute, a better use of time than the previous.

One of my worst weaknesses (yes, shocking that I have even one, right? LOL) all my life has been procrasti….. wait a second, let me install this hot new software first… OK… I am back… yes, as I was saying… procrastination. I am kidding about installing the software (or am I ? LOL).. but you get the idea.

The one flaw of my many which has let me… or, I should say, that I have let keep me from doing all that I need, want, aim, dream and hope to achieve in my life. I have probably only hit 1-2% of all that God gave my potential for, and it is a crying shame that it is so little because of the one weakness which I allow to get the better of me.

One way I have compensated for the many days of my life I was not productive is doing things in binges… Just like watching Netflix‘s The House Of Cards 13 episodes per season within 2-3 nights, I will sometimes go 24-36 hours on a productivity binge.

That is what I ended up doing last night when I took this selfie this morning. As Friday dawns over the Great South Bay outside my windows at home on Long Island, with merely 2 weeks left in what was one of the fastest flying years I can remember, I am taking time to reflect.

The good thing on such 24-36 hour days is that I will get a lot done, but the down side is that each time, each darn time, I kick myself about how this or that could have been done weeks, or even months ago. And, as many of you are all too familiar, I am sure, you too end up swearing off procrastination, “Never Again!” Until, of course, we do it the very next day or week.

We may not always overcome every weakness, but at least committing to fight it is a step forward. Not just a promise to make in new year’s resolutions, not just in promising ourselves to try to make tomorrow better, but to doing it Now!… Forget doing better tomorrow.. Make the rest of today, make the rest of this hour, even make this minute, a better use of time than the previous.

That is a fresh start without having to wait for a new year… That is a chance to begin anew even as our lives hurtle towards an end we all will reach sooner or later. No matter what time is left available to use, let us promise to make better use of it.

May God give us the strength to overcome our weaknesses and the tenderness to forgive ourselves and others for what we fail to achieve due to them. As long as we promise “I can and will do better” … we will!

Last Birthday With Abu – IMRAN™

Every time I used to bid adieu to my father I always soaked it all in; time and feelings, sights and sounds, love and lifelong bond. One never knows when it is the last time you meet a loved one.

Solo SoLongAgo. – IMRAN™

I was somewhat apprehensive about being a student pilot with someone who had just become an instructor himself. But what a great thing it turned out to be.

National Pet Day – IMRAN™

Sometimes birds can fly away, and even return. You can take them back, protect and nurture them again, the best you can. But sometimes you may not have the time or ability to give them all they need. Or, if they show that is not enough, sometimes setting them free is the best way to show your love and kindness.
