I’m playing Fantasy Football for the first time. My roommate needed an eighth person to complete the league, so I joined. It’s not bad. I’m certainly watching a lot more pro ball than I ever have before.
I can see the draw, but I think I’d just rather watch the games without having to worry about who is getting me points on which team. It’s a little too much trying to keep up with every game and every opponent.
I need to stop reading the news. It continuously makes me ashamed of humanity.
If I were ever in one of those sci-fi situations where the survival of our species rested in my hands, I honestly don’t think I could make a convincing argument in our favor.
We have made great advances in science, technology, business, politics, and economy. But in terms of ethics, morality, compassion, understanding, communication, and the human spirit, I just don’t see it. We are just as cruel and violent and lost as we have ever been. Read any set of headlines or watch any news shows on any given day to see the evidence.
We like to believe things are better. We like to claim that we now have such things as crimes against humanity, codes of conduct, and evolving standards of decency. But the fact that we have to regulate our actions with punishable consequences shows that we have not truly matured. We will break the rules, throw up our arms, and delve into inhumanity whenever there is a chance.
Given that, what goals do we actually have? What are we aiming for? What are we holding out for?
I joined Facebook recently, but realize I have nothing to say.
I don’t do anything interesting enough to share and everyone else already posts all the humor, witticisms, and news I can stand.
