    Humanity Is Weird

    Humanity is weird! I really didn't think things could get much worse with our species. You see, I grew up in a time that would boggle the most open and accepting of minds. They called it "The Cold War" even though the people supposedly perpetrating it were, for the most part, a bunch of hot-heads. Case in point—I remember seeing Nikita Khrushchev on our little black & white TV waving his fists in the air while the news translator explained that Niki was exclaiming "We will bury you!" Even though, at my tender age of five (he spilled this quote in 1956...), I was not privy to the "f" word, I can certainly exclaim now—"What the fuck, Niki! What were you thinking?" So that was the start of it. For a five year old who just recently got unceremoniously shifted from his comfortable home in the UK to the wilds of Canada, it was a sobering start.
