We are tirelessly consumed by our opinions and how we must prove them to be right until all else is lost. In the end, we are only left tired and angry for never having proved them to be right.
Agreeing to disagree is just agreeing with yourself that you disagree with the other person because they are obviously wrong.

Thought & Other Absurdities is a collection of modern witticisms, thought provocations, & other absurdities from the mind of Joseph D. Newcomer, author of Diminishing Return, El Camino Blue, and the soon-to-be-released through Dead Star Press, SciFi mind-fuck novel, Darkest Day.
Originally posted on the Thought & Other Absurdities blog at JosephDNewcomer.com, these brief essays are rife with the social commentary and compassion-invoking prose you have come to expect from Newcomer, but with a more direct and pointed purpose than his novels. This collection is designed to offer the reader daily vignettes of societal considerations to engage the mind well beyond the few moments it takes to read each entry. It is simultaneously thought-altering and painfully relatable.
All proceeds from this work exclusively benefit the creation of Joseph D. Newcomer’s passion project, Dead Star Press LLC. Thank you for contributing to Joseph’s dream of releasing his and other writers’ weirdness into the world.
