I recently gave one of my bags (not a cheap tote, but the kind that you can stuff into itself to make a small bag and carry it in a purse) to someone who was obviously buying all of their groceries at 7-11 and was walking home, but didn't realize 7-11 didn't have bags with handles.

Do I give a fuck if I get that bag back? No. I knew then that would never see that bag again, and I don't care. I just didn't want someone to have to make two or more trips with their tiny backpack to 7-11. She didn't ask me for anything and I didn't ask her for shit for doing it. Seeing her relef and her thanks was enough. Screw you dicks who think anon is a bad person for not writing a thank you note. Wtf is this? Emily Post?

@1 I wish it were that simple. Orcas who have been bread in captivity or lived so long in it can't survive very well in the wild. Each orca pod has it's own language and is rejected by other orcas. They are social creatures, and setting them "free" is certainly a death sentence.

:) Yes @#7 it could.

But there is *something* there. It is awing. Amazing. And to this non-art major, it is incredibly beautiful.

I weep, almost every time, I've seen a Rothko. I know that's just me, but it was his purpose.

@42...Gen X people were born to boomers. Boomers were born to "the Greatest Generation" (bah, they were awesome, but the greatest? Who's to say.) who were the ones going thought the great depression. The Greatest Gen were the ones who gave the boomers everything, because they knew poverty and want and hunger and did not want their children to suffer that fate.

The boomers...they were one of the most insufferable, privileged, self-centered generations ever made. And sadly, it's because the Greatest Gen didn't want them to feel the suffering they felt. Gen X? they were accused of being lazy, but yet, they are responsible for most of the tech we now take advantage of. Gen Y/Millennials? They are hard working, interesting and realistic people, who know and fear that they won't have a job when they graduate.

BTW, what's a young Gen X? So, you are like 33? That ain't young. Gen X ended in 1980.

My grandparents (Greatest Gen, I am a Gen Xer) were FAR MORE COOL than my parents (boomers). True facts.
