Rory’s Morning Dawdler — 01/10/23

Rory, the king of questions, also known as the Autistic Composter, has come up with a new series of questions that he calls “The Morning Dawdler.” He poses four questions three times a week, questions he says are “inspired by life, humor, conversations and observations, town life, blog posts, writers, gardening, news stories, television, entertainment, and human curiosity, and so on.”

Here are Rory’s four morning dawdler questions for today.

Can you find the the mistake in this lineup A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H,I,J,K,L,M,N,O,P,Q,R,S,T,U,V,W,X,Y,Z?

  1. This is a trick question and there is no mistake in this lineup, or
  2. Grammatically, the question mark should be after the word “lineup” instead of after the letter Z, or
  3. I’m tired and my eyes are only seeing what my brain expects them to see, which happens to me a lot when I’m proofreading my draft posts.

What old fashioned way of doing things is better than how they are currently done?

Using the written language where people didn’t use emojis or acronyms instead of words to express themselves. I mean seriously, WTF? 🤣 LOL!

Are we consuming too much information and data and is the modern world bad for us?

I think, between 24-hour cable news networks, smartphone newsfeeds, Twitter, and other electronic media sources, we are continually bombarded with information and data, and the biggest problem is with the credibility of much of it. There are too many “sources” that are deliberately spreading misinformation and lies and many people are too lazy to verify that what they’ve read or heard is actually legitimate and factual.

If global warming continues, what will happen in the future?

What future?

    Combine this – I’m tired and my eyes are only seeing what my brain expects them to see, which happens to me a lot when I’m proofreading my draft posts – with what Paula has written 🙂

    Well, actually, there should be a colon after “lineup.” The question make is fine, but there’s a lot of missing punctuation. I try not to edit other peoples’ writing because I am (sad to say) a born again editor. Not a proofreader (different skill sets), but give me text and I will make it better while leaving it sounding like the original author. I think I’m a better editor than writer.

    You’re so right about the misinformation. I read everything with scepticism nowadays

    I agree with not knowing what news is really news, but ultimately I think there is just too much of it and most of it bad. It could be partially to blame for the increases in depression being fed shooting updates daily.
