Default What can we do to make the world a better place?

I'm not talkin' environmentally, because that sh!ts been habitual.

Recycling, Low Water Usage, Bicycle/Pedestrian Movement over Car in short distances etc. already established by Yourz Truly'z family.

I'm talkin' about puttin a smile to geyzers phaces. Risin the optimism in this cold, dark world without sky-rocketing to a state of complacency. Teaching a kid a sport or a trade. Charity.

What actions can we do to benefit mankind and eventually create our respective legacies before our only companions become maggots and grass roots.

This is what I am doing... volunteering for those in need.

Example: Big Sunday is Coming Up

Hopefully it makes a difference the way you describe above.

recycling actually doesn't help the world, we have all this recycled paper for example, but that ruined the paper market, so no one wants to buy the recycled paper and so most of it gets sent to a landfill in china. That is just one of many examples where recycling actually hurts the environment more than it helps.


We just need more love, son. WHERE'S THE LOVE GODDAMN

Eliminate ISH. I hate to say it, but, seriously. I lose a fair amount of brain cells everytime I read something with BruceBlitz or OldSchoolBBall's name on it. Those lost brain cells could've gone towards me planting trees or cooking goulash for the poor. Instead I just want to bash someone's head open with my laptop.

Explain. I see attempting to create art as pretty much useless outside of the use of entertainment and hobbies. Plus, art really is a, "you have it or you dont" quality.

look through your address book,

pick an old friend that you havent communcated with for a while

call him/her up and catch up

or better yet---

send a card/letter through the regular mail

surprises like that really make an impression on folks-- and it might renew an old friendship

The reason that you see art as useless is because of the lack of vision that you place in creating something outside of yourself. Art comes in many forms.. if ever you have attempted to 'create' something of worth, that is long lasting, you have been an artist without having realized it.

Our culture has made us think of art as merely a form of entertainment or a way to consume time that is left over.

If we come to see art as a way of learning about humanity, and who we are as a person.. we will come to see that artistic avenues are worth more than the projected 'moment of amusement'.

You can look at the history of the world to realize that we dont value art, as we once did as a collective people.

You are wrong in that estimation. Yes, to some, certain forms of art are easy to produce or to understand, and usually it is those that reap fruit from creating and experiencing art.

The problem is that we live in a society that is very lazy when it comes to artistry... so if the concept does not arrive easily... we always seek to look at it as a non worthy effort, or at least we look at it that way when its artistic mediums...

Those who dont 'have it' just have to work harder at producing it.. yet is it not that way with most things that we do? Some aspects of life come easier to some people, and for the rest of us.. we just simply have to work harder at attaining the same results...


Most things having to do with art, is having an open mind about things that you are not familiar with. That is something that we, as 'creatures of habit', have a hard time doing...

I very much agree with this also...

For me, so far - so good.. enough people out there are having kiddos.. Ill leave it to them..

Im not the most mature person out there and I like to do what I want, when I want.. so according to those two factors, I really dont want to have little humans to take care of...
