Thanks, this put a smile on my face. Sadly, not everyone understands satire.

Dear reader, if you don't know what a satire is, please search for a definition. We, humans, are not yet walking encyclopedias. But we're getting close thanks to always being online, always connected to internet, capable of quickly finding shallow layer of information on anything. The sad part is we've lost the ability to appreciate the complexity of a topic by digging deeper. At least this is what I find missing rather frequently in myself. As I dig deeper and learn more on a topic, and then review an old movie, for example, I find just how much I've missed, and most of it is good, deep stuff, lots of food for thought. Sadly, we only live do long, so learning the full depth of even a single topic is frequently out of question even if you dedicate your entire life to it (and I'm a type of person who loves to dig a little deeper, and wider, and around, and then I dig into psychology and philosophy of the author whose works I'm studying... It's a never ending process).

If you read the entire comment - thanks! Hopefully it gives you something to think about :)

Have a nice day!
