Nothing makes me love traveling across America more than standing passively among other Americans (and some foreigners) and commenting on things, especially when those things are animals, and especially when they’re sea lions and we’re in San Francisco.
This video is from a road trip I took last summer with my best friend from school up the California coast. Needless to say, we saw a lot of sea lions on the way.
Even as far as Onion articles go, I haven’t in a long time seen one tweeted as far and as wide as this one: “Find The Thing You’re Most Passionate About, Then Do It On Nights And Weekends For The Rest Of Your Life”
The bottom line is that life is short, and you owe it to yourself to spend the majority of it giving yourself wholly and completely to something you absolutely hate, and 20 minutes here and there doing what you feel you were put on this earth to do.
The humor aside, it makes me think that a lot of us are spending time on things that aren’t that important at the expense of those that are.
At first listen, Joe Jackson’s “Cancer” (1982) sounds like the anti-public health song. “No caffeine/no protein/no booze or/Nicotine,” Joe Jackson complains, referring to everything he’s not supposed to consume if he wants to avoid cancer.
But Jackson’s catchy tune and clever lyrics may reflect public frustration with a bombardment of conflicting, over-simplified headlines that tell us that everything from milk, to sunscreen, to bubble tea tapioca pearls can cause cancer.
