Harmful to kids


One of these children is holding something that's banned in the USA 'because it could potentially be harmful to kids'. The other is holding an assault rifle.

Of course you don't want your child to grow up to be an abose adult thanks to all that chocolate and sugar in Kinder surprise eggs! Let alone have them suffocate in the tiny plastic toys inside. You want everything that's harmful to your child to be banned, right? The government should do make everything that could hurt your child illegal to own, right?

But the government should not meddle with your right to own a gun. Right? So, the government should always tell others what to do and never tell others what to do. Yeah!

'Yeah, but if we ban guns, criminals will get their hands on them anyway.'
-'So you're also against drugcontrol because criminals will get their hands on them anyway.'?

A positive world

Sometimes it seems there's nothing but trouble in the world. But that's simply because good news doesn't sell newspapers. Or ads on newsapps.

Every single day more and more people are convinced we have to help the planet, the animals and eachother. We can all contribute in different ways.

Like, have a nice sing song:



Or help thousands of fish, birds and turtles not so suffocate on plastic:


Sometimes all you have to do to help this world become more of a fun place is be creative and get some friends to help form your idea into a reality.

Double standards

You all know the examples of double standards people don't realize they speak about:

'Those foreigners steal our jobs and are too lazy to work!'

Without wondering how anyone can work and not work at the same time.

'Everybody who receives a government handout is just too lazy to work!
Except for me because it's not my fault I'm unemployed.'

Yeah, but when someone else is unemployed it's their fault.

'The government should tell people what they can and can't do
and the government should never tell people what they can and can't do!'

'Everybody should always obey the rules. Except for me because I know
perfectly well when rules are stupid and can decide for myself which ones I follow.'

'All foreigners must leave my country immediately! Except for my still not English speaking grandfather and that nice guy from the taco stand near work.'

So, should all foreigners leave or just the foreigners you don't know personally?

Latest one in that order is this one by the National Rifle Association, the NRA:
According to the NRA everybody will be safer if more people would carry weapons in public. Except at NRA meetings.

I think that is funny. What do you think?

A positive world

People are awesome! It may seem there's a lot of war and poverty going on. And although that's true, it's a lot less then fifty years ago. So humankind is making progress! No wonder with creative people like the inhabitants of the Japanase village of Inakadate:



Perhaps you don't want to take me up on my word that we ware doing better in the fields of war, famine and inequality? Listen to a real world professor:
