Sadly, that's so true that it's not really funny at all. :(

There is one of them with which I totally disagree.  It is the one showing nails being driven into the coffin of "literature".  While it is true that I haven't picked up a book in several years,  I actually read even more than I did before.  It is just that now I read ebooks instead of paperbacks.  Even my username "Bookmem", which stands for "book club member", reflects that.  Even when I go to my local Karaoke bar to sing, you'll find me with my  Surface Pro 3 in front of me, reading a book, while I'm waiting to sing.

And, in addition to the tech making it easier to obtain and read books, it , via the many self publishing sites, is actually encouraging people to write.  Overall, while, yes, it is killing traditional newspapers, it is helping with literature in general.

I was deliberating for a while deciding whether to post it here or in another thread. It is sadly amusing. The cartoon factor decided it.

Sorry, I had to Google him too.

I guess you have to know that he's only 5′ 4″ tall and Dwayne Johnson  is 6' 5" to get the joke.

I'm old and I live under a rock. Most of my TV viewing is of shows that were on TV before you were ever even thought of.

 

You'll get here someday, if you're lucky! ;)

I haven't had cable TV in ten years or more but I see most movies and whatever shows I want. I have multiple streaming services as well.

Overpopulation is the main cause of climate change and many other issues of Planet Earth.

 

Yeah, we need a good 99% fatal virus like the one in Stephen King's The Stand to fix the ol' Earth right up.

 

HA! Just kidding... maybe. ;)

So if the virus wiped out 99% of the population that would leave 1% alive. So are you saying your ideal world would be full of theses folk. 😆RTR21XCI.jpg

The planet would be better off with them running it than all the man-children in suits now. I really despise the status quo where anything goes as long as profit and growth continue and human rights, climate change, and animal welfare be d4mned. And no, I'm not a commie. Well, maybe 1% commie. ;)

Communism, Socialism, etc. aren't all bad. The problem is that with any ism, man corrupts the pure forms of them. Marx and Lenin are whirling in their graves if they see how their dreams were corrupted by men like Mao and Stalin.
