I've seen this since the day I signed up here. It has to do with this odd phenomena I've noticed in humans of this time and age, where they look
-forward- to naturual disasters, and potentional unrest or war. I think the world has become so 'safe' so quickly, that humans as a rule, are
confused. It has been in our genetic makeup for thousands of years, to survive. To expect hardship, and to overcome the adversity.
Much of this is gone. The world is a much safer place. So humans look for things to go downhill, to satisfy some inner-need for chaos to overcome.
I mean look at it.. when a disaster strikes, you often see articles about humans being "at their best." Why? Because it's what they are
programmed to do. Handle adversity.
Heck, you see it every day. At work, talking about snowstorms, you can just see that people want the "big one." They are hoping for feet of snow.
They actually seem let down if it turned out to be nothing.
I just think we get the vocal folks here of that sort. Some say "oh.. that would be horrible.. buuut.. I think something really BAD is going to come
of it!" Some openly admit they'd love to see a war.
I've lost count of the times I've read "This looks bad. Really bad."
It always looks bad, the world is always about to collapse, war is always just around the corner, we are being purposely dumped on with chemicals from
the sky, killer planets are sneaking into our solar system, super volcanoes are going to kill us, and it just never ends.
When I read these, I just smile and try to think of that song.. "Always look at the briiight side of life!" Makes me giggle.
