It’s Wednesday and that means Quick Hits here on Cosas Totum. If you’re interested in seeing previous Quick Hits, click here. Last weeks was a bit abbreviated on account of the snow and ice and busted pipes we were dealing with here in Texas, so I’ll try and make this one a bit longer to make up for that. Here we go:
At some point, likely in the next 50 years or so, cursive will basically be a secret language for people born before 2000.
More sports should allow fighting like hockey. Think about it. How great would it be to see some instigator like Draymond Green or Bryce Harper just get the crap kicked out of them, then they sit for some period of time (I’m thinking three minutes in basketball, 6 outs in baseball)? It’d be great.
For a game series called Grand Theft Auto, stealing cars isn’t all that important to the plot.

Can you imagine being the first person to test a parachute in a live-trial where you jumped off a building or out of a plane or whatever? Terrifying. Same thing with bungee jumpers.
Clinical trials should be called drug tests.
If they remade The Breakfast Club today, they would now be (from left to right): a cyber bully, a lacrosse player, completely unchanged from the original, a successful TikToker, and captain of the robotics team.
Have a great Wednesday and an awesome rest of the week, everyone.
