Importance of Comedy

Comedy is a genre with a large amount versatile and variety in its history. Why? The reason is the idea of comedy and/or “funnies” are all based on the opinion of the beholder. Each person has an idea of what is funny and what is not for themselves, and while often times people can share the idea of what is humorous, there will be times when it will differentiate. Even though comedy can be found almost everywhere today, not many know humor and laughter are actually very important in our lives. How you may ask? READ THE FOLLOWING PARAGRAPHS TO FIND OUT! 😀

Comedy actually provides laughter or just lighter feelings among the people who come into contact with it. Through movies, stand-up comedy, novels, and other artistic forms. There are many different types of comedy as well, dealing with cartoon characters hurting themselves, making fun of everyday life, or mistakes that seem hilarious to others (since it didn’t happen to them). Comedy is very versatile, not set in stone or contained into a single guideline.

We all know that life is full of hardship and many times sadness. Many times it also adds a lot of pain, just for the kick of it. What I am trying to say, life can be a jerk, and as a result sometimes it is hard to remain cheerful. If the stress, pain, or sadness continue to build without stop it can result in increased suicide rates in cities, like Seattle (due to constant cloudy and rainy weather). This is where comedy comes in. Laughter is proven to lower stress levels and blood pressure and since comedy can provide laughter or lighter feelings, it can often times help out in times of stress or turmoil in our lives.

Comedy also has an important part in the artistic side of life. Each person has their own sense of humor, as a result comedians who work side by side with humor to produce the most efficient results create “art”. For instance the comedic art of humor through pain, like the television show the Three Stooges or even Tom and Jerry. Comedy provided new ideas and styles of humor that today needs for television, novels, and overall in art.

In the end, comedy has a part in all our lives and has a part in our overall health. Without comedy, many people today might have died due to stress built up from work or the horrible occurrences in life. We all need those cheerful light moments in our lives…much more than we think we do.

Human and the Good

Hello Friendly Viewers~! Its time I wrote another blog post for you guys to enjoy, and this time I hope to make it a bit more optimistic than my past posts. So a previous post was based on the evils humans are willing to commit, and while there are bound to have agreements, a viewer recommended I also put into account the positives that humans are capable of and not just the evils. Thus for this post I plan on making it mostly about humans and their ability to do good.

While true that humans can be selfish, I mean just look at most of our government officials and corporate fat cats, there is still some generosity that can be found in our lives. The homeless, the percentage of homeless make a small percentage of the United States, but are steadily growing due to lack of jobs and population growth for the last few decades (with innovation). For homeless begging in the street humans will at times give change, but that isn’t enough. However, there are some great people who will have those homeless people join them for a meal and present more than a bit of pocket change or even just treat the homeless as people. Those people are the ones that are truly good people. Of the homeless, there are actually families with children that cannot afford to buy something decent to eat. As a result, schools and religious groups will hold fundraisers to raise food or toys for these families.

While there is lots of other good things that humans have done, like care for the environment and animals (after other humans have literally destroyed those environments and killed a lot of those animals), the main purpose of this article is to basically say we humans aren’t too bad. Even if we do tend to be destructive and can often times fall to the glories of evil, we aren’t actually that bad.

Living with Greed

I would like to start off the post by saying sorry to those waiting for the actual post of “Women and Feminism”. So far I have not had the motivation I originally had to write the post. It should come out later on but don’t expect it out really soon. Anyways back to the actual post.

Greed. A single characteristic that we have been taught to condemned and to avoid since an early age, starting with not being greedy and sharing your toys (which I was never willing to learn). As we grew, we were encouraged to avoid being greedy whether with our food, our possessions, or our money. It seems there is a continuous list of what we shouldn’t be greedy with, because it’s “bad” and “mean”. Other people believe that greed is a wonderful thing to have in communities because it has some positive side effects, like being greedy for knowledge has the possibility of new discoveries.

Most people condemn or agree before they know all the facts about greed. This post is meant to give both pros and cons of greed, and give the people enough information for an educated decision. Please note that I may not put EVERY LAST DETAIL into pros and cons. The viewers are welcome to provide information or disagree in the comments section (please do so RESPECTFULLY and do NOT be RUDE).

The idea of being greedy is bad has been implanted into us by our parents and teachers early in our childhood. So why is it considered such an awful trait by so many people? I believe some of the fear of greed comes from occurrences related to greed. There has been times where greed has made another human being injure or maim another for possessions or objects with value. Thus the fear of young children or anyone becoming violent due to greed, makes the characteristic of being greedy one of the most shunned. The feeling of pity is another reason why greed can often be disliked. In terms of income, some workers barely make enough to survive…while company executives or managers make hundreds of thousands a year and give themselves pay-raises. Thus we picture those executives as greedy and want them to give the money to those who need it. As a result, people consider being “greedy” is a bad thing. In some cases it is.

Another view point towards the characteristic is, “What’s wrong with being greedy? It is reasonable or necessary in life”. People have told us “don’t be greedy, it’s important to share”. Let’s put that policy into the business world then. Without greed, there would be no improvements. Why? Picture it this way. Lets say on one hand, a company pays all employees the same. All work hours, all products, all responsibilities get the same pay regardless. As a result there is no motivation to do anything well, after all, if people “share” all money equally or never get a raise what is the point of working hard? With greed, people will work harder in companies and innovation in order to get that chance of selling more for money or getting a raise. The reward and the greedy desire for that reward is what drives our economy. In this case it is actually good.
greed good
In the end, it is your opinion if greed is good or evil. Like I said earlier, if you guys think I missed anything or should include anything, please comment at the bottom. Or if you disagree and want to tell me why, please comment on the bottom as well…just please be mature and respectable. I will take into consideration on what you guys say. No one pays attention to rude comments.
