Will the Louisiana Sink Hole End the World?| Random Thoughts of a Writer With Writer's Block.

Updated on January 22, 2013

This will give you background information about the sinkhole.

I was so infatuated!
I was so infatuated!

There are days where it is almost impossible to concentrate on writing. I sit at the computer and contemplate about what topic I should write about. I have many ideas racing through my mind, but can I write a whole article about one topic? Today, the answer to that question is no. So, I have decided to put some of my random thoughts and fears on paper (or the computer screen).

1. Will the 400-foot deep sinkhole in Assumption Parrish Louisiana end the world?

Apparently, there is a cavern about 2000 feet from the sinkhole that contains 940,000 gallons of butane. Authorities are concerned that a massive explosion could result ( an explosion 100 times stronger than the bomb dropped on Hiroshima) if the butane is released to the surface.

If that prospect is not scary enough for you, the water in the sinkhole is radioactive (though not at dangerous levels); however, who knows what amount of radiation, or radioacrive material located deeper underground, could be released in a massive explosion? In closing, many end of the world prognosticators are riled up, so should we (I) be scared too?

2. Is anyone else worried about how accessible pornography is to children and teenagers? I have had several teenagers tell me they watch pornography all the time (even in school). There are some truly disturbing sexual (and non sexual) images on the internet. How does one get the images of Two Girls One Cup out of your head? Pornography has to effect how teenage boys see women and have some affect on their future realationships, right?

3.What super food or supplement that was supposed to cure all your ills... is now bad for you? Will the term sooper foods go away like the term free radicals?

4. Why are there so many food and drug scares lately (lack of oversight?)? It seems like every day there is a new commercial warning about a prescription medication.

5. Why are so many of our pets dying of cancer, and what is it in our environment that is causing them to have cancer?

6. Will Tim Tebow ever become a great quarterback? He is a great kid, but will we know who he is in a few years?

7. I read part of an article once that said all that men want is sex slaves. Is that statement true? Note to wifey, in no way do I think that statement is true.

8. Are other people as tired of the presidential campaign as I am? And, we have such a long way to go.

9. I know that every new generation of parents says this, but are our children becoming lazier? My friend’s daughter said, “You do not have to work mom, you just have to become famous." Is that the motto of the younger generation?

10. Will the so called bath salts drug start the Zombie Apocalypse?

11. Is it only a coincidence that, it seems as if, only white people seem to question Obama's birth certificate? I would be willing to admit that I am wrong, if you come up with a logical argument against my contention.

12. A DJ on a local radio station stated that he took five years of french, in college, because he was chasing a girl. I have to admit that I took 4 classes in college only because I too was chasing a girl.Have you ever done anything as dumb- just because you liked a member of the opposite sex?

In closing, I am really going to have to write a real hub...maybe tomorrow

      After living there for probably 90% of my life, I can't say there is much in Louisiana that doesn't deserve to be blown up (except my family of course). I never liked the place.

      I'm not worried about the issue of porn. It is the parents right/duty to monitor what their children are being exposed. At some point you gradually lose this ability and you have to accept the fact that they are going to stumble through the world and bumb into things that you may feel they shouldn't have to witness. This is something that all parents will eventually have to deal with. You can and should postpone it as much as possible from happening but eventually they will find it and they will watch it. I don't believe that it is harmful per se. Most people have a natural curiousity that fades over time. Some people do develop addictions to porn and this is a problem that can be delt with in counselling.

      Great thoughts there! Number 1 on your list... I just saw this several days ago on Youtube. This is extremely disturbing. Let's pray that the worst case scenario never happens! Amen.

      And number 8. Yes, I am sick of the presidential campaign. It's not about how to effectively run the country anymore and make it a great place to live. It's a campaign of lies, er, I mean talk, and that's all it is.

      ~Elect Me For President~ I will make all your dreams come true~ As president, I'll fix everything~

      Enough already, pleeze!

      I voted up and interesting.

      What do you mean you are going to "have to write a real hub?" This was a real hub! :) Still a very funny and thought provoking read, even the second time around. :)

      I also have nothing to say so I will try the random thoughts thing--when you are staring at the computer, does it stare back? Isn't the word sink hole redundant? Will Whitney Huston be spotted with Elvis? What words rhyme with caucus besides raucous? Doesn't the earth get to fart once in a while--it certainly has to put up with enough of ours?

      Short and sweet.... great variety of topics that really make you think. I feel the same way... maybe I will write something tomorrow as well! :) Interesting and shared with others so they can have something to think about as well!

      I am sure there will be plenty of sequels of this hub to come.

      I was worried about the availiability of porn at 18, because Porn was so hard to buy or see (it was the 80'S). All kidding aside, I would like to see some research on the subject. Pornography is such a hard subject to grapple with. It is demeaning to women(even if one is not a christian), and there is no such thing as christian porn; however, hotel room porno rentals go way up during christian events. So, it seems like men of all persuaions struggle with it.

      Hahaha, this totally made my day. Glad to see I'm not the only one suffering from writer's block.

      Haha! A very amusing Hub! I've yet to read any of your others so I can't tell this is irregular for you. Concerning you points:

      1. I, as an 18 male, am not worried too much about the availability of porn. It's a parent's prerogative to prevent their young children from seeing what they don't want them to see, to an extent. I also don't think it is harmful, at least not to me.

      2, 3. Opinions on drugs and food change too rapidly, so I don't pay much attention.

      6. I don't think all men want that, but I wouldn't mind it. (assuming the slavery is consensual, haha!)

      7. Sort of. I enjoy seeing the Republican primary and the media circus. Sad? Very. Entertaining? No doubt.

      8. Maybe. Kids I see in school are the epitome of laziness and make we worry for the future. Then I realize that all kids were like that in some ways. Immature. Nothing new.

      9. 6?!?! Say it ain't so.

      10. I know not of the "birther's" race, only their intelligence. Which is to say, none.

      Thanks for the random thoughts!
