Now this goes along with that last post where I ask, "Can humans agree on anything?". Obviously the person who made this depiction of a lot of humans getting excited about a fictional movie was making the point that Homo sapiens (i.e., the wise ones) may not be so wise when it comes to expending much of their energies on trivial matters. And as is often the case with you humans, there were plenty of disagreement over their assertion.

I put this particular picture in with the comments on the right for a particular reason. And that is that some day I'll be writing a post asking whether or not humans can agree on anything. It seems that there is one person who thinks that this cartoon is spot on, while another basically calls bull shit.
I pay close attention comments to blogs, and there are very few post that I don't find similar argumentative perspectives. Seems to me that you humans live in a culture driven by never-ending arguments.
Could I have said it any better?
Now I'm going to touch on a few highly controversial topics with you humans in this post, and I want it known from the onset that I'm not supporting or bashing any religion or any individual's sexual orientation. There might be some of you that get upset simply because I'm going to show a clip from Fox News because very often many of you (i.e., liberal-minded types) accuse them of being one-sided...even though their claim is to provide "Fair and Balanced" news.
If you were paying attention to today's news, Jeb Bush's response to a question about who his favorite Marvel superhero was - made quite the stir. What caused the commotion was not his comment about liking Batman, but came from when he tried to interject some humor by stating that the new Supergirl was "looking pretty hot".
I know that I'm being pretty harsh on you humans, but my whole point in this blog is to show that you may not be as rational as you think you are. Why would I do such a thing?
It all boils down to your treatement of the environment; if you don't treat each other with respect - what does that say for the treatment of something like a tree or fish?
I won't expound on these postings - I'll just let them speak for themselves.
I need a short name for what is lacking; I call it the ecological conscience. Ecology is the science of communities, and the ecological conscience is therefore the ethics of community life. I will define it further in terms of four case histories, which I think show the futility of trying to improve the face of the land without improving ourselves. Aldo Leopold in The Ecological Conscience (1947)
Although I was highly offended by Rodney Dangerfield's one-liner in Caddyshack - Last time I saw a mouth like that, it had a hook in it. - I just think this cartoon by Scott Hilburn is hilarious...don't you?
To make it match the other two hats, he could have had that hat on the bear turned the other way (that is if he'd harvested a male of your species)! Now wouldn't that have been funny...especiallly if it was cold in that bar.
Although we fishes are often in very cold water, we don't have to worry about such a thing.
“This tendency to avoid problems and the emotional suffering inherent in them is the primary basis of all human mental illness. Since most of us have this tendency to a greater or lesser degree, most of us are mentally ill to a greater or lesser degree, lacking complete mental health.” M. Scott Peck, psychiatrist and bestselling author of The Road Less Traveled.
“Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing ever happened.” Winston Churchill
