Sundays should be days of rest. For me, 'rest' means a good workout, some reading, maybe a little time at the shooting range, and watching FOOTBALL. Recently, I was recruited to play street hockey on Sunday nights. I don't enjoy hockey (grew up in the desert), and being on the 'street' instead of the ice, makes it all the more lame. However, I love competition, so while I still have it in me, I give it 100% (I even practice a little in the week, when nobody is looking)...
|Zombie Target Practice|
Couldn't find a book I was interested in, so I checked the library on-line, yadda-yadda-yadda, and I was reading on the Internet...and I began reading a "survival blog," which can be both informative, and entertaining. The post I was reading was about preparing for an event, such as flood, hurricane, total economic collapse, zombie attack, etc. When all of a sudden I came across this:
"...Checking for trigger events is the first thing I do in the morning and the last thing I do at night. When the markets are open, I will get an automated text message in the event of an economic slide. Hopefully, this proactive approach will allow us to bug out while the desperate masses are still paralyzed by their ingrained normalcy bias. The benefit of a government job is one can leave for up to three days without advance notice in the event of a perceived trigger event. Not only does one not get fired, but usually gets paid for those days..."
I took note of the phrase "ingrained normalcy bias," - I'm gonna use that one.
But the note about being a government employee...clearly, this is totally misleading. A government employee can be gone for much longer than THREE DAYS without being noticed. One could be at an 'off-site,' or 'in the field,' one could be at 'training,' or doing some liaison with another useful branch of the government. And, why wouldn't one get paid for those three days? One got hired - and as long as one has not retired - one gets paid.
