What a bunch of negative Neds and Nellies! Just seeing stuff can’t compare to feeling the gentle breezes, smelling and tasting delicious food, feeling the warm sand… and the danger is miniscule if you go to the right places, air travel is safer than being on the road…
I would be shocked if any of us here were ignorant of it, especially when the cartoon reminds us. How old are you? Have you lived long enough to see with your own eyes and experiences how much things have changed since the sixties? Sure, there’s still stuff to work on, but I do think we’ve gotten to the point that continuing to make a big fuss about stuff that happened decades ago can have a negative effect. I don’t think the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jackie Robinson, and Satchel Paige would want us constantly looking backward, dredging all that up over and over, wringing our hands and hating, instead of moving forward.
There’s a difference between not forgetting and DWELLING on it and making out like we were so much worse than everyone else and are still bad because of it.
Not that way, though!
I remember seeing online a picture of an exhibit at a museum captioned “Archaeopteryx,” but it was not a real fossil, and it didn’t even look like Archaeopteryx, just some mediocre artist’s impression of an ancient bird or something.
NO, seriously, SOMEbody needs to help with watching those kids!
Groundhogs. Woodchucks. Whistle pigs.
NEVER say that, especially when you’re in a movie, sitcom, comic strip…
Reminds me of the time we were at a tourist attraction and my brothers and I pretended to be statues until some people came along and were trying to decide if we were or not, and then we jumped up and ran to catch up with the rest of the family.
