    The world's climate is warming at an alarming rate, terrorists and extremists are everywhere, we're running out of our main energy supplies, we're plagued by bird flu, pig flu, regular old human flu, Sars, SUPERBUGS!, half of us are morbidly obese and the other half are anorexic or starving, political instability is pretty widespread, the economy is receding with no end in sight and the high seas are once again litteraly swarming with pirates!

    It's kind of exciting...

    Something about this post coupled with your avatar photo is utterly hilarious to me. I don't know. I'm in a goofy mood tonight.

    I see it too. He's like a philosophical monkey contemplating why the world sucks.

    May as well try to enjoy it. :pop2:

    The world as it is, is one of the reasons I retreat into myself. It's extremely overwhelming to me, and it's enough for a person like me to be paralyzing. It's hard for me because I feel like there is something I should be doing, but I don't know what it is, or don't feel like it will make a difference. Mostly, I just go about my days, but I would be lying if I said there isn't a part of me that is constantly a nervous wreck. But then again, I get nervous about everything.

    Flowers grow well in shit. :)

    There's always another way of looking at things. Google for good news. It's worth the effort.

    Do you think the media have cried wolf far too many times? Apathy like SHs is going to be more and more common as we get desensitized.

    ... or, try turning off the T.V. ... things will seem about 20 times better than they seem now.



    Who gives a flying monkey if the ice caps are melting? It's happened before, it's happening now and in thousands of year it will happen again. As for pirates, are you planning on shipping coal or oil any time soon?

    Where's the excitement in that?



    That's like saying to a rape victim, "who cares if you get raped again, it's happened before and will probably happen again in the future" not really reassuring.

    Well I'm not gunna broadcast for all the pirates out there on the interwebs to see am I? *eyes Flavus suspiciously*

    If you had a time-machine would you go back to try and save them?

    The animals alive today are here because their pregenitors were stronger than the ones which became extinct. In a million years that law will still hold true.

    Yeah, except I'm selfish. I want to have my name live for millennia on.

    Be known in more than 1000 years? Three most obvious options:

    1. Conquer a significant proportion of the world, or impose a radically different form of government on a similarly large proportion of the world. (eg. the Caesars, Alexander the Great, etc.)

    2. Make a significant and MAJOR intellectual or litterary contribution. (eg. Plato, Aristotle, Cicero, Augustine, Averroes, Aquinas, Shakespear etc. )

    3. Become a saint. (eg. Peter, Paul, Matthew, Francis, Dominic, etc.)

    (Some people mentioned as examples are less than 1000 years RIP, but there's little chance of their being forgotten).
