The holidays allow us to let our guards down, to sit back and enjoy the people closest too us.
Until, of course, we are all in Wal Mart battling it out for that new plasma screen tv. Do they still make plasma screen tvs? To be honest, I really don't even know what a plasma screen is. Does it play 1080p?
It seems like 1080p is as a good as it gets, but then again, science is always improving our viewing enjoyment.
I hope that some day we can watch other people eat thanksgiving dinner without having to do anything other than turning on our tv (which is really just an over sized monitor btw.)
Of course we can do that now, but until the experience is truly three dimensional, vis a vis modern technological advancements, we are left feeling flat. Ha. That's a hilarious pun.
In the future televisions will be three dimensional, thus giving us an authentic viewing experience. Because our brains are dumb, we will believe that the experience is real, much in the way we have the false belief that our experiences with other humans are real now.
Advertising will get us to buy stuff using deception with partial truths.
Also, we might fall in love.
People think that without god, there is no hope. I think this is true.
Without god we have no hope. Unless we are hoping for a new bike, or maybe to learn a new trick on your skateboard. Then you have hope. Also, there are other things you could be hoping for. Like, sex.
It surprises me that people will trample each other for a an extra large bag of discount peanuts, but do not have sex. Peanuts are messy, so is sex. Most people do not have allergies to sex but they can be severely injured by a peanut.
