The Fifth Horseman


I’ve heard complaints from people that it would be nice to have more of a break between Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Nobody wants the hoof beats of War coming when the Pestilence Horseman hasn’t ridden off into the distance yet.

Actually, the whole Horsemen of the Apocalypse thing sent me down the information rabbit hole. There’s the New Testament version, the old Testament version -a whole lot of scripture, mythology and tradition. Don’t worry, I’m not going to go into any more of that. You can go down your own rabbit hole.

My concern is that we are also dealing with a fifth horseman. His name is Stupidity and he rides upon a Jackass.

He makes everything worse. We have to deal with a lot of crap these days. Let’s not make it worse by being stupid.



  1. I've joked with my Vietnamese neighbor in the past , that once upon a time I had to dodge bullets shot by his relatives.
    Saying that this next war , I'll share my bullets with him to fight the neighborhood thugs. He just smiles and agrees with my assessment of the situation.
    Yesterday my other neighbor, actually asked what my opinion is of the Russian/Ukraine thing. He brags that he never watches the news...I told him , be prepared to glow in the dark and if you're fortunate enough to survive the initial start of hostility...then be prepared , or starve...

    1. I never get over the number of people who are ignorant and proud of it. Life has few rewards for being stupid.
