Rory’s Weekend Quicky

On Saturday, the always inquisitive Rory, A Guy Called Bloke, posed six “quickie” questions that he called his “Weekend Quickie.” So I know that it’s Tuesday and that Tuesday does not fall on the weekend. Therefore, let’s just call this Fandango’s Tuesday’s Quickie Answers to Rory’s Weekend Quickie Questions.

Why do they say “It’s not rocket science’?

For the same reason they say, “It’s not brain surgery.” Or as I like to say, “It’s not rocket surgery” or “it’s not brain science.”

Do you feel that everyone has an artist in them?

Only after they had an artist for dinner.

Do you prefer writing during the day or the evening?

Yes.

Do you hoard clutter or constantly de-clutter?

I’m what they call a constantly decluttering hoard clutterer.

Are you a confident person?

I’m quite confident that I’m not a very confident person.

What is a hobby you wish you had more time to enjoy?

It’s the one that I’m sure I would really enjoy if only I could find the time to enjoy it.

    What “they” usually mean is that it doesn’t take a smart person — or very smart person. I see this as a misapprehension of reality. There are different kinds of smarts, first of all. But we could take the sayings as pointing to activities wherein if one is not tremendously precise in the specific area, then the results are likely to be easily observed as catastrophic. [And people who don’t observe less explosive or less-non-pleasing results (in other areas) probably aren’t very smart.]
