Some Things Were Really As Bad as . . .

Updated on February 17, 2019

Kenneth is a rural citizen of Hamilton, Ala., and has begun to observe life and certain things and people helping him to write about them.

I am Proud

to announce that my introduction is similar to the opposite side of life as was the hub, „“Is It Really as Good As . . .“ which I published about a week ago. And I find that after mulling over the contents of this hub, I found it really worth writing about—although a lot of people may disagree.

This hub is honestly headlined as . . .“Some Things Are Really as Bad as . . ." and regardless of the text, I can assure you that all of my text has been scrutinized and found to be safe.

The photos that I chose for this presentation are not only pleasing to the eye, but very sound and just like reality, very believable.

So Now Please Allow

me to head forward and write the main section of this hub and frankly, I do hope that this offering will bring you some measure of joy and maybe a bigger dose of happiness. And although the following statement: I drank an entire pot of coffee is true, I do not want it to affect your judging my piece and decide its validity on the basis of being bad or good.

Okay. Now we can proceed. Some Things Were as Bad as . . .

  • Having to stand in line at some supermarket whose sole cashier, (a newbie I might add) was having a time as she fumbled to check the prices, made me feel as if I were having a bad practical joke being played on me.
  • Being stranded in the Gobi Dessert with only a half-quart of water was as bad as being my mouth filled with table salt.
  • I was about to fall asleep (in the same dessert), and was feeling pretty good with all things considered, then a Sidewinder and three Stinging Scorpions find it necessary to come toward me.
  • Being thirsty is bad. Take my oldest uncle, 102, and his wake lasting for 12 + hours and no water fountain in sight.
  • Me caught out in the driving rain was pretty much like standing at the bottom of Niagara Falls.
  • The dangerous bolts of lightning that were striking about me made to feel like a dart boa
  • Talk about a bad afternoon! I felt so crushed that it was like being attacked by a rabid dog, and then my next-door neighbor, a retired Long Shoreman, took exception to the smoke emitted from my barbecue grill and tried to push me onto the grill.
  • Standing at the wrong place and wrong time such as being in front of former Heavyweight Champion, Evander Holyfield.
  • Mowing my lawn and my mower hit a small tree limb which carried it to a huge hornet‘s nest that was hanging directly over my lawn and yes, I did suffer a lot of those hornet‘s stings.
  • Watching grown men lug their shotguns to the woods and “bag“ more than their legal limit of our Gray Squirrels to say nothing about the Fox Squirrels makes me so nauseated that I cannot hold down solid food.
  • Speaking of nauseated. Watching the documentaries about Civil Rights and scenes in Birmingham, Ala., in the early 60s with Police Chief Eugene “Bull“ Connor unleash several German Police Dogs and open many hoses that were used to fight fire.
  • Losing my lunch is as similar as to that of watching the same documentaries about Anti-War Demonstrations (Vietnam) with Army vets who came home and helped demonstrate (to them) just how ignorant Vietnam was and some even threw their medals into the trash bin
  • Watching (on TV) the authorities arrest James Earl Ray, who assassinated Dr. Martin Luther King on the second story of his motel room makes me so depressed that I do not want to get out of bed.
  • Watching (on TV) the many films and documentaries about Sirhan Sirhan who was arrested for the assassination of Robert Kennedy who was running a successful campaign for the President of the United States makes me feel good at him never being pardoned for parole.
  • Having my wisdom teeth cut-out was the painful reminder about Lee Harvey Oswald who assassinated President John F. Kennedy. Oswald was captured by Dallas Police for the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas, Nov. 23, 1963, in Dealy Plaza.
  • The stress in Mr. Hancock‘s Algebra I class was so thick that you could cut it with a pocket knife and the students‘ hatred for Hancock was so evident that Hancock was visibly moved by the nervousness of the test that he had handed out to his students.
  • Eating a burger at Big Dan‘s Burger Galaxy was so awful that the cockroaches were protesting outside.
  • My blind date, a Miss Purvis Beadeaux, was so stuffy that it reminded me of the boredom of digging a ditch.

Did you enjoy this hub, or did it cause you some discomfort? Talk to me.

      MH: as usual, you are with the Elite, so what you doing here? LOL/ I am not kidding about the Grassy Noll and the black guy who did say that one of the gunmen was an inmate in Kentucky that the C.I.A. released and sent him to Dallas and he was an expert shot and there was a photo of Oswald standing near the parade just when the shots started going off, so, you know what I am going to ask: How could he be two places at the same time?

      And the second faux pa, thanks to the Draining Question/Not Warren Question, Oswald allegedly shot a Dallas cop on the other side of town and that is why he was arrested, but THERE were NO records of the Dallas COP on that day, week or in months.

      And Jesse Ventura, you need to get on Tube and listen to him. One thing stand s out: The Kennedy limousine was a crime investigation area, but LBJ had the car shipped to some plant in Detroit to be reupholstered, etc., so a president can break judicial law?

      And LBJ, someone I hated, was not in love with any of the Kennedys for, and it showed this lady who just happened to be near an office in the White House, mopping, etc., and she heard yelling and lots of curse words . . .LBJ came out, glared at her and said, I'm taking care of those Kennedy boys." You cannot make silk from swine, so there is no way ALL of the documentaries were false.

      Anyway. Will do my part in the search for you Mr. H.

      "I found an interesting video on YouTube about the Grassy Noll and I think that you need to hear him." - Do share then. Or, are You just teasing, haha!!

      I'm a student of History, Philosophy and English. So, any conversation, on any of the three is well received.

      Cheers!

      P.S. "As always, your comment were poignant" - Someone on Hubpages said to me a long time ago that I "tickle the angry fibres". Haha!!! ; )

      Carolyn --- Hi. Thank you so much for your

      wonderful comments. Although we have

      never met, I consider you one of my

      Best Friends and Allies.

      Keep up the great work.

      And write soon.

      Mr. H. --- As always, your comment were poignant, interesting, and deep. I see a deeper thought process as in THIS comment and that is fine. I too have a lot of thoughts about JFK and Lee Harvey Oswald. Were they connected? Did some Syndicate plan both these tragic events?

      I found an interesting video on YouTube about the Grassy Noll and I think that you need to hear him.

      Things, I found out, are NOT as we have thought. Keep this mind, my intelligent ally.

      Lata. ..

      Sincerely,

      To be completely honest, I could only read a few of the items before I skipped to the bottom. I'm on a strict "limit negativity" diet this January. Not listening to much news, not dwelling on the things that have gone wrong (except to learn from them). Perhaps I will revisit your list in February.

      Interestingly, I do not process people's misfortune as I've observed other people do. It doesn't make me feel better about myself. It just makes me sad.

      Interesting thought provoking, and in places even amusing. For my part, I can say that a really bad scene was trying to calm myself by drinking some beer and having a cigarette because my husband is in the hospital and I don't know how bad things are, the phone rings and I am informed my husband has passed away, put phone down back to beer and cigarette when suddenly oh, my Lord I am totally alone in a two-story decrepit house in Riga, Latvia and my husband is not coming home ever. After having gone through something like that I can now say nothing scares me anymore no matter how bad it gets.

      "Me caught out in the driving rain was pretty much like standing at the bottom of Niagara Falls." - I have a feeling You have never been to Niagara Falls. If You say: "Yes, I have", I'm gonna say: "But You haven't been to Niagara Falls on the Canadian side." So You see, there's no winning on this one. You basically have to come to Niagara Falls and I'll pay for lunch, or dinner. Forget about it: I'll pay for lunch and dinner. You just come.

      "Standing at the wrong place and wrong time such as being in front of former Heavyweight Champion, Evander Holyfield." - No offense to anyone but there is that saying: "The bigger they are the harder they fall". I fear nothing and will never back down from a good fight but then again, I'm Dacian/Getae from the Thracian Tribe. The ancient Greek historian Herodotus wrote: (Histories Book IV XCIII: "[Getae] the noblest as well as the most just of all the Thracian tribes")"

      "I did suffer a lot of those hornet‘s stings" - Be kind to Wasps and Hornets, please. I got a soft spot for them. Ants too.

      You guys hunt squirrels down there? That's pretty cool. I never ate a squirrel but there are so many around this city that I honestly thought about it a couple of weeks ago to ask a cop if I could catch and eat a squirrel. I don't really want to cross the law over a squirrel. I don't want a squirrel that bad.

      I'm not talking about Vietnam because if I start, You might not hear the end of it. (And the end is always important. All "ends" are. It's the nature of their Being.)

      "Having my wisdom teeth cut-out was the painful reminder about Lee Harvey Oswald who assassinated President John F. Kennedy." - Did he though? I thought we were still on the fence about that. Not the fence on the grassy knoll, in the northwest corner of the Dealey Plaza. Just: on the fence.

      About those wisdom teeth though, You should have asked for nitrous oxide, more commonly known as laughing gas. I did and it was fun! lol

      "Eating a burger at Big Dan‘s Burger Galaxy was so awful that the cockroaches were protesting outside." - I'll make a note of this. True, I only eat maybe a burger a year but I want to make sure that burger a year will never come from "Big Dan's Burger Galaxy". You just did them in, haha!!

      "My blind date, a Miss Purvis Beadeaux, was so stuffy that it reminded me of the boredom of digging a ditch." - I have absolutely no clue who "Miss Beadeaux" is but I'll take her any day over digging a ditch. I don't know how many ditches You dug but from my experience, digging ditches is a big pain in the rear. Especially if the earth is mostly clay. That's when it all gets stuck to the shovel and You have to literally shake it off. The boots get all sticky too and when You lift your foot, You lift it together with like ten pounds of clay ... it's brutal. Give me Miss Beadeaux, she can't possibly be as bad as digging trenches.

      Alrighty, enough of me. I do wish You're enjoying yourself! All the very best!
