“To confine our attention to terrestrial matters would be to limit the human spirit.”

With thanks to Perceval and RPJ!

Quote of the Day:

“We are just an advanced breed of monkeys on a minor planet of a very average star. But we can understand the Universe. That makes us something very special.”

  1. cats
    in general, as the article should have gone more deeply into, any animal is good for your health. it not only teaches kids responsibility but also makes them feel loved. i know that i would come home from school after a day of being tortured and bullied by other students and it was my animals who kept me from killing myself. i think it should be a law that all kids have pets, unless they come from a broken home or are those crazy brats who try to pull off Mr. Whiskers’ tail 😛

    Personally I’m a dog lover, but i have owned cats in the past, i just didn’t like the kitty litter part and the fact that it does stink up the house even if you change it often, and your close and stuff of cat urine. Yes, I prefer the plastic bag over the scoop! I like cats though, I can’t logically hate an animal…

  2. Samsara
    I Amazoned me Baraka 2 months ago —I was a bit um, inebriated and I just made an impulsive purchase, but Boy was it worth it!

    I showed it to my parents, and although my mom snored through most of it, I was incredibly delighted to notice my father’s enthralled attention to it. Later in a family gathering he mentioned how impressed he was with the movie. That made me really really happy 🙂

    So I’m definitely getting Samsara before the year runs out!
