Thoughts that keep me awake

The landmass that makes the African continent is larger than China, Europe and America combined. The population of Africa is a measly 1.1 billion. India is 1.3 billion and China 1.4 billion but we have a population problem in Africa. What am I missing?

Do watchmakers believe that there is some absolute time that they try to make their chronographs match with accuracy?

Is there wisdom in dying for truth in a world where there is no absolute truth? Especially in the field of convictions? Should not one make allowance for being wrong? Or mistaken?

Those who kill others for the truth, do they allow for being wrong? How can they make amends if they were to discover they were grossly mistaken?

How is that African dictators never seem to die or even fall sick in office? Their hold both on power and health makes one think they have a deal with fortune to cause as much pain as possible and then some more? Well, maybe all dictators/ authoritarian leaders.

Why is running addictive and sometimes so hard?
