People are perpetually cranky, and the better and easier things become, the crankier and less satisfied everyone seems to be. I've always liked Louis CK, and I don't think anyone could've said it funnier.

And what happened next? You clicked a link and you were instantly connected to the internet, transferring endless amounts of information across the world like people never dreamed of just a few years ago?

I am 100% with that guy. Life is just amazing and so many take it as their birthright.... with not a clue as to how it works, what it takes to keep it going, what it costs (financially, energetically, environmentally).

My own orange box on the them is that most folks have no feeling for where their food comes from.... little plastic wrapped packets in the supermarket.

BTW. I love flying. On the runway, at takeoff I'm always grinnign like an idiot.

Maybe this is off topic but what amazes me is who are heroes are. People in sport, actors, and murderous megalomaniacs ie Alexander the great. We tend to only give begrudging recognition to people like Gandhi. We declare undying admiration to those who die in wars but secretly are glad it was them and not us. This is clearly instincts run amok. Surely the human race will mature and see that wars are not glorious, that intelligence is more important than appearances, that the rich and famous are often little more than parasites, that instincts are no substitute for judgment, cooperation is more essential that competition, that freedom does not mean do what ever you like, that drugs like alcohol do not address emotional problems very well, that religious conviction is no substitute for taking intelligent action, that love does not solve every problem, that mindless reproduction is a threat to the environment etc etc.

What Bio's blog really addresses is the need to subdue ego in order to truly appreciate nature and the contribution of others. I suspect that it is the selfish gene that makes this so difficult.

Thanks for finding this Bio. These are exactly the type of people I deal with when I repair computers. I laughed so hard.

Louis C.K. is one of my favorite comedians. He has a new show on FX, of which some episodes are available to watch online.

His old show is now on DVD.
