An easier way to fail

Heard joke once: Man on knees in theatre lobby. Friend comes in. Asks what he’s doing. Man say he’s looking for his apartment keys that he lost before show. Friend say “Finding is simple. Think of where you lost them. Did you hear them fall?” Man says “Felt them fall out of pocket out on gravel parking lot.” Friend asks why looking in here. Man bursts into tears. Says, “It’s too dark outside.” Good joke. Everybody laugh. Roll on snare drum. Curtains.

Very funny.

Today I talked to a friend about climate proposal stop fossils. Friend proposed ETS. I worried it’s not enough, too late, we really need to stop fossils as in really stop new drill projects. Friend says that’s more difficult than a small fee. I remembered joke. But didn’t laugh.
