Just think where we'd be if those do-gooders had been around in Noah's time.

There are so many mega huge "junk" ships. Most of them are going to places where they pay the people next to nothing to dismantle them as fast as possible. They are full of hazardous materials but the people are desperate for the money/work. It's a real shame. And us here in the US are their biggest suppliers.

only after he went to the river, after moving twenty tons of steel across the fields, and working for years to build it in the first place... only then did they start to say he was strange?

cool and strange film. As usual, the story at the link tells it a bit differently. The depression fostering a man obsessed, and despised by his neighbors. Sad, really. Of course, it's museum now!

life is esentially sad, moments of happiness are interspersed, more liberally for some than others of course. but in the end one of 2 things happens, you either lose everyone you love to death, or cause those you love pain by dieing first. enjoy the good, never squander those happy moments they are the only reason life is worth living at all.
