After the battle of Antietam in the US Civil War, one of the bloodiest, President Lincoln asked his personal friend and bodyguard to sing a diddy. This prompted a congressman to ask how in such a troubled time the President could seek humor. In reply, Old Abe responded, to wit, "If I did not find something funny to laugh at I think I would go insane." In defense of these NUBS, they are anti-depressive as well as informative from another perspective.

If you find some of them too offensive, recall how Bess Truman apologized to her bridge club after Harry stormed in and stormed out. During his brief stay he complained about the "horse manure" on Capital Hill. When asked why she didn't get the President to refrain from profanity, Bess responded, "It took me 16 years to get Harry to say that." In other words, these are not bad compared to what lurks in the unsharable. These are my censored Quentin Tarantino moments.

In general, when confronted with a new problem, one of the most important part of being clear-minded in diagnosing a valid description and formulating a viable prescription is to laugh at the problem (not at the problem-sufferers). Any whining "woe is me" response reduces ones iCube in expeditiously solving the problem. Besides, if you are going to suffer, better to suffer with a smile than with tears. If you are going to die, don't cry about it. Enjoy your last days. When my wife faced life-or-death heart surgery, we enjoyed the days before the fateful incision with a myriad of jokes. My favorite was how we were, in anticipation of the outcome, price-shopping cruises and caskets. Life on earth will not be saved, the primary moral imperative, if people burden and blacken their minds with emotional nonsense and lies.

You should not read any NUBS if
