lately i've been finding myself fascinated by people. when i was younger, well, a couple of years ago, and we'd go out to harpo's on tuesday one of my favorite things was to just sit there and watch people. watch how they interact and how they behave. heh, made it funnier because they were all drunk, but it's still interesting to watch how we as humans behave. some are outgoing and have no problem allowing themselves to be heard, others are very introverted and prefer to just sit there and listen to those who like to hear their voices. i'm not sure if this makes us a good race or not. obviously it's good that we're all unique, but still, is it good that we're all so different? i personally think it is a good thing. if we were all the same, and liked to do the same things, had the same thoughts, the same personas, why the hell would we want to live? and granted there are those out there that you're not going to agree with on certain things, but is that really any reason to chastise or dislike them? hell no. all in all, i guess sometimes i just wonder why we're here if we're just going to despise each other.
