Yay Humans!

Just when you think the world is getting paranoid and stupid and everyone is too busy fretting about stuff they can't control, people in New York City - a city noted for being full of grumpy, surly folks - help a little cardboard robot get where it's going. Lots of people.

This makes me just so happy. People, given half a chance, even people dosed in more than the average helping of fear and paranoia, will be nice. For all of the times we're reminded of how people are selfish and uncaring, it's nice to see that individuals will be more likely to be helpful over hurtful. It's not til we get organized into groups that our worst tendencies take the lead.


  • After a rain, I sometimes move surfaced earthworms from the sidewalk to a grass patch so they don't get stepped on. Like the guy at the end of the article, sometimes it seems like they want to head in a specific direction and though I feel a bit arbitrary, I end up saying something like, 'um going into the street would be bad'
