Lesson on Humanity

Human beings are very complex people indeed, compared to the rest of creations. Did you know, for example, that man is the only creature who would tear down trees to make paper and then print leaflets saying "Save the trees"?

Other creatures do not do that. Do you know why? Because they are too dumb to do anything, that's why. I mean, have you ever seen a parakeet bake a cake? Or a sloth make cans of beans to sell in the supermarket? The sloth just hangs there from a tree and sleeps for up to 18 hours a day waiting for humans to arrive and save him from extinction.

Let's face it, if you're going to sleep for all that long every day then we'd be waiting for eternity to have a sloth making cans of baked beans or cans of anything for that matter.

That's the problem with animals, birds, fishes and all other creatures. They do nothing. They are there just to eat or be eaten. Part of the food chain as I was taught at school.

We humans on the other hand are clever.

We can have children whom we educate and they grow up to have more children whom they educate and as education spreads and we all become experts at one thing or another we discover that there aren't enough jobs for all of us anyway and our education has generally been miss-spent because we are now educated and we know that we cannot use our education to good purpose because there are not enough jobs for all of us anyway because there are too many of us to start with.

Now try saying all that with a mouthfull of marshmallows. I bet you can't. But a parakeet can. Do you know why? Because he is too smart to eat marshmallows.

So there you have it. A quick lesson about humanity.

Whereas human beings multiply ever more and cry out save the planet not realising that it is mankind itself that is ruining the planet; the sloth sleeps for 18 hours a day and the parakeet does not eat marshmallows.

Which leaves one question un-answered.

Whilst the sloth is hanging upside down from a tree asleep for that long; how does he go to the toilet? It must be both uncomfortable and inconvenient to relieve himself whilst asleep.

  1. I can answer the last question, Victor. Our digestive tracts rest while we rest! THERE NOW YOU have been further educated with some more useless information!

    I wonder what your brain looks like---surely it is wired different from others--how else would you come up with all this stuff!
    Blessings, Friend!

    1. Thank you Lulu. Presumably the sloth's and the bat's digestive systems also rest whilst they are asleep. Otherwise there would be quite a mess when they wake up upside down!

      As for the rest of my post - my thinking is that animals, birds and fishes don't bother educating their young at schools and colleges because they know that there are not any jobs for them when they grow up. Yet we humans educate more and more children each year to compete for fewer and fewer jobs. It doesn't add up in my brain. I know of several well educated people who cannot get jobs around here.

      God bless.

  2. Your mind ... *giggling* ... I know you're just being funny, however, for those readers who don't know: "Three-toed sloths descend from the trees once a week to defecate, providing a breeding ground for moths that live in the animals' fur and nourishing gardens of algae that supplement the sloths' diet, new research finds." I'm glad I don't have to wait a whole week for that. I would be in a pickle to be sure! *lol*

    And, as for educated kids not having enough jobs ... with Capitalism (i.e. Free Enterprise without government interference/regulations), one goes out and creates the business that generates revenue and hires even more people. That's how it's suppose to work. Now that all our nations are communist and/or socialist and into giving out 'freebies' with no work, no one wants to achieve. Thus, no new jobs are being created. Just my two cents.

    Hope your day is blessed. ~:)

    1. Thank you Sparky for your two cents. Years ago in the UK we had public toilets where people went and put 1 Penny in the slot and the door to the cubicle would open. Hence the saying in the UK "to spend a penny".

      These days with inflation it costs a fortune to spend a penny. So I think we should turn the population over to being sloths. At least once a week would be cheaper.

      God bless you and thanx for your sense of humour.

  3. Oh, my, now that IS a quandary! I never thought about how a sloth goes about this! I am surprised the government doesn't put out lots of money to find the answer to this! LOL!! Thanks for making us laugh...I shared this one with our son, and he laughed along!! You are a blessing. :)

    1. It is a quandary, Cheryl. I was speaking to a sloth about it the other day and he fell asleep half-way through the conversation.

      Glad I made you and your son smile. God bless you and your family.
