Boomer’s Hollers “Versus”

I have stated in here before, I am working on a book titled “Versus” (I have also stated before that I will probably come up with a better name, but for now that is what I am calling it). In the book I am asking people the difference between two different yet alike type of words. Words that can be considered synonyms yet may actually be slightly different. The Many Topics I have picked to explore are the following: Good VS Great, Opinion VS Thought, Feeling VS Emotion, Common Sense VS Logic, Hope VS Optimism, Need VS Want, Perception VS Conception, Morality VS Legality, and a new topic I thought of today Possibility VS Probability. This last one came to me today while at work. I was thinking about abstract things, but mainly the idea of my favorite college team winning their next game in the basketball tourney they are in. Nevada is playing Stanford in the NIT tourney. The game will be Wednesday at 6p.m. I was mulling over the possibility of the Wolfpack beating the Cardinal, and how probable it may or may not be.  So the question I ask the general public, and it is the same for all the topics above. What is the difference between possibility  and probability, if there actually is one, and why or why not? Anybody chiming in with an answer that is original and worthy of print will obviously be credited in the book.

One may actually argue that there is not a difference and come up with a great answer as to why not. Hmmm something worth exploring.


About Bigboomer

Hello, first of all I would like to thank you for visiting my blogsite. I am going to tell you a little about me. My name is Ray, I started writing back in high school. Every once in a while I would come up with a few ideas and would write them down. Most of which became poems others became short stories. Some of my inspirations are of the heart, some of them come from the thoughts of the day. You will see, as you browse threw my site my poetry is about as diverse as you can get. I hope that as you read them some will have you thinking of love, while others will make you feel sorrow. I would like some of them to set you off to an adventure. Finally, I have some poems that may make you hungry. I do have some inspirations that just plane turn into ramblings or rants as, if you read in here, you will see. I have managed to get two books published so far, the first one is titled Pathways, it may be found at xlibris.com/RayBohdan.html. there you can view a couple of excerpts form the book. The second book is Mingling Hues of My Mind it is at publish America A little bit more about me. I am fifty-one years old I have three children, Rainney, Elisa, and Anthony and two well, actually, three grandchildren Raeanne Marie, Graycee, and Amaya. I guess I could go on, but then I am afraid this will come out sounding like a dating profile. Part of my site will be dedicated to my poetry, I plan to break it down into different sections and organize it by type/style. Another section of this site will be dedicated to my blog it will be about my rants/thoughts of the day. These will vary from political, to personal, to comical. I will talk about most anything and everything that I feel may be of interest to someone. I also will devote a section to some of my favorite recipes with hints on how to capture his/her heart by winning their stomach. My favorite foods are Italian and Mexican, but this section will not be limited to those two types. I do believe however, that the most important part of my site will be the dedication pages. These will be to memorialize special loved ones and friends, as well as thank those that have made purchases of my afore-mentioned book. This is exactly what you think it is. A way for me to sell my self as a writer. Publicly get my words and thoughts out into the world. Please believe me when I say that this in no way demeans or diminishes my passions for the people and the love of which I have written, and will continue to write. I trust that once you read my poems you will feel the love i have felt, the pains I have been through, and the joys of life itself. Once again I thank you for stopping by please enjoy.
