Barn Doors

November 6, 2017


If you say that someone has closed or shut the stable door after the horse has bolted, you mean that they have tried to prevent something happening but they have done so too late to prevent damage being done.


The way I learned the above is from my uncle, when he would remind me to close the barn door after making a mistake.

Earthlings appear to be an evolved, evolving and evolve able species. Well beyond that thumb thing.

“We’re supposed to keep evolving. Evolution did not end with us growing opposable thumbs. You do know that, right?”

– Bill Hicks

For example, going from pooping in the woods, to an outhouse, to indoor plumbing, to master bathroom toilets with heated seats, bidet attachments and soft close lids, to going #1 and #2 on an international space station. Whisked and wiped away so quickly, it is like our shit does not stink in the first place.

Right now, our only proof of nearly stagnant evolution, is being able to close the barn doors after the horses are out.

Evidenced in our post problem solutions,  whether it be only proposing a ban on bump stocks, or suggesting that Home Depot, no longer rent out trucks.

Going a bit further back to screening skeletons at the airport. Under the illusion of security. Blindly accepting systematic systems failings.

“Airport security is a stupid idea, it’s a waste of money, and it’s there for only one reason: to make white people feel safe! That’s all it’s for.

To provide a feeling, an illusion, of safety in order to placate the middle class. Because the authorities know they can’t make airplanes safe; too many people have access.”

– George Carlin

Right in line with the cliché definition of insanity. Doing the same thing over and over, again and again expecting different results.

As the collective psyche slowly gets tamped asunder forgetting its wholeness.

Yet, like silly putty that has been flattened, frayed, fractured and fragmented still has the cohesive adhesive tenacious ability to be rolled all back together as one.

When at least a plausible practical solution would be, not to have so many horses in the barn in the first place.

If there were less horses available to be corralled back into the barn off the sidewalk, or at concerts, there would conceivably be less horses to rent a truck to run them over, or mow them down, from a sniper’s nest.

Less horses to get together to conjure up more reasons to hate and kill other horses. Simply because there are too many horses in the barn named earth.

“Almost every problem in the world boils down to too many #&cking people and I’m not just talking out of my ass. I’ve had my vasectomy,  I have no children.”

From “Deadbeat Hero”

– Doug Stanhope


Peculiarly, not planting any seeds in any garden, works too. Having left, any would be children, safely in the spirit realm.

Keeping them safe in heavens barn. Those horses do not leave, unless they are called for.

“Wouldn’t it be nice to have a kid? To have this fresh, clean slate which we could fill. A little clean spirit, innocent, and to fill it with good ideas.

Yeah, yeah, how about this? If you’re so #&cking altruistic, why don’t you leave the little clean spirit wherever it is right now?”

– Bill Hicks
