They say that Light travels faster than Sound, is this why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.
I ran across this in my file of random things I keep, and at first it threw me right back into the election we just went through, and the so called pretty people who were anything but when they opened their mouths, and rather than talk politics I will just say that I do not miss the commercials nor the random phone calls that made each and every candidate look so bright, I will just say that I’m sure proud most did not get my vote.
Now getting into the informational part of this post, which verifies that my statement above is correct and I have completely gone over all of my research which proves that I have no idea what I am talking about, but since this is all about fun and opinions then most of it wont really matter anyway.
From my vast amount of research, I have found that light travels at a rate of approximately 186,000 miles per second or 671 million miles per hour, so with this said you can look into the light and see all sorts of people and places rather quickly without knowing exactly what they are all about, the speed of sound is a whole different ball game, from all the equations I have found, they seem to measure the speed of sound in so many different ways that just doesn’t apply to our conversation here, I really don’t want to know how fast sound travels through helium at 0 degrees Celsius, or through walls, water, milk, mud or anything else on their chart, I was just looking for an example of how fast my voice would travel across the room regardless of the temperature or the look on Cindy’s face. So with all of the confusing stuff aside, it appears sound travels at approximately 1,087 feet per second or 741 miles per hour, so with that said I can safely say that I can see that look on Cindy’s face a whole lot quicker that I hear the reason behind it, so this explains why sometimes we can see the fact, but really don’t know why we are in trouble until it’s too late.
Now here is where these people begin to look a bit foolish, you have seen their products and heard their spill on how good everything works, then in a really low and quick tone you hear a bunch of jabbering that is explaining all of the possible side effects, these side effects make me scared to even watch the commercial again much less buy their product, everything from choking to death on the artificial peanuts in their peanut free peanut butter, to becoming suicidal due to the medication that is supposed to make you feel better and keep you from being depressed, because depression hurts and if you are suicidal then you are either taking too much, not enough, or shouldn’t be taking anything at all, then there is that four hour thing again, I am still wondering if this is a side effect or a selling point, by this phase of the commercial I am wondering why there is a need for separate bathtubs, and why in the world are they outside, heck I’m not even sure what product they are selling now, too bad they talked so fast and showed me so many images, I’m wondering now if my plumbing products really need that kind of attention.
Then you have the young ladies and gentlemen whose names pop into your household from out of nowhere, these celebrities are so beautiful and the pictures you see make you think, this is someone who you would like your kid to be like, their image is everywhere and the endorsements bring their face right into your living room via the TV commercials, these kids look like the “All American” kid and you rush out to buy the product they are pitching, simply due to the fact they represent themselves as a good kid and look as if you should trust them, you cant help but hope that your kid looks this good to other folks. With this said the visual is there until one evening you hear an interview with this “Role Model” and the vulgar and vile lifestyle they are promoting makes you sick at your stomach, or you see that this “All American” kid has been arrested for Lord knows what and the image you see now is not near as pretty, especially when they open their mouth to blame everyone but themselves for their situation and the F word fills each sentence followed by showing the camera that they are number one with the wrong finger, now you are proud that your kid is nothing like this.
Never judge a book by it’s cover and never judge a celebrity or politician by the cool look they give you in front of the camera, get to know a book by reading it, and a person by how they portray themselves in real life and treat their friends and family, because contrary to popular belief looks are not everything, it’s what people hear coming from your heart that makes them love you.
