A couple of odd thoughts: if you were going to live for thousands of years, how would your life change (yes, I mean other then being longer)? A film with many gold stars in the ratings explores the issue.
By the way, has anyone seen the much-billboarded “Happy Feet” yet? That was also highly rated in the US, and I’m wondering if it’s worth seeing.
In a different philosophical bent, we have a book about scientists’ struggle to identify a source for altruism in a world dominated by survival of the fittest. I would never be certain that my explanation wasn’t completely invented. (-:
OK, that’s probably it for random posts for a while.
