Weekend Reading: The Things I Never Thought About Before Edition

One of the fun things about reading blogs is that I sometimes come across a post that makes me think about something I hadn't thought about before. This weekend, I have three such posts for you.

The first, from Bad Mom Good Mom, is about reducing waste in the garment industry. She's also had earlier posts about sewing with pre-consumer waste fabric- i.e., the scraps from the garment trade. I must confess that until I read these posts, I never once thought about what happened to the fabric leftover when my clothes were made.

The second is from my friend Stevil, who had a post about our country's motto, wondering if perhaps it is time to change back to what we had before the communism scare of the 1950s. Again, before I read this post, I hadn't really thought about our motto at all.

Via @Cydharrel's twitter feed (a good feed to follow if you are interested in tech stuff and like haiku), I came across this post on how government is not a startup and saying that it should act like one is a bit daft. I have heard the same calls for government to be more like a startup, and had never really thought about what a crazy thing that is to say- and I've even worked as a government contractor.

What about you? Are there any posts that you've come across recently that made you think about something new? Or something in a new way?

  1. I'm glad that someone finds my posts interesting besides myself. LOL.

    Remember when my husband posted about the hypocrisy of the 1950s that prompted the addition of "under god"?
