    Right Now...

    The music video for the Van Halen song "Right Now" featured lots of lines starting with "right now" that ranged from profound to humorous. Since LitNet people also cover that range, I thought it would be fun and enlightening to see what we come up with.

    Here's the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rMV-fenGP1g

    And here's some sample lines for those who can't do streaming or aren't interested in the video:

    *Right now, people are having unprotected sex
    *Right now, opportunity is passing you by
    *Right now, justice is being perverted in a court of law
    *Right now you could be outside
    *Right now, the light from a star in M-5 is heading toward Earth
    *Right now, light that left M-5 a thousand years ago is getting to your house
    *Right now, God is killing moms and dogs because He has to
    *Right now, guilt is turning someone inside out
    *Right now, somebody's got the wrong idea
    *Right now, it's business as usual in the woods
    *Right now is just a space between ice ages
    *Right now is a good time to repent
    *Right now, science is building a better tomato
    *Right now, pigs are becoming lunch
    *Right now someone is working too hard for minimum wage
    *Right now, your parents miss you
    *Right now, oysters are being robbed of their sole possession
    *Right now, no one is safe from loneliness
    *Right now, it's cold where someone you love is
    *Right now, a mad man is wandering the streets of the town you live in
    *Right now a tired man with a wounded heart is sitting in a coach seat on an eastbound transatlantic flight looking out the window wondering how to say 'dog,' 'howl,' and 'moon' in French just in case it comes up
    *Right now she is going on with her life
    *Right now, you wish you had a larger TV
    *Right now, our government is doing things we think only other countries do
    *Right now you aren't doing what you most wish you were
    *Right now, your memory is getting longer while your life is getting shorter
    *Right now, dogs have it good
    *Right now, there is no cure
    *Right now, people are doing it for money
    *Right now, a bowl of soup would be nice
    *Right now keeps happening

    *****************

    So, to start it off...

    Right now, someone is bending instead of breaking
