A lot of people talk of today’s increased technology and all its other subsequent advancements as some kind of demise of humankind. However, I tend to think that there are some brilliant inventions and possibilities that have come out of technology. They have made our lives healthier, easier, and so much more convenient.
Take the fitbit. People can be acutely aware of how much movement they make a day and increase that for optimum health results.
Take the electric garage door. You can sit in your car, rain, hail or shine, and with the simplest press of a button allow a huge chunk of metal to cascade up, or down, while you stay in heated/air-conditioned luxury (another technological amazing advancement).
Take the internet. You can google almost anything, I mean ANYTHING, and have some kind of valid/legit answer pop up. Look up a country’s demographics, find out how long it takes to travel by plane from Melbourne to Maroochydore, what is the proper, English/Australian spelling for manoeuvring (this one ALL THE TIME)… it goes on and on and on.
And then, YOUTUBE.
Well of course technology would also make our lives more fun, wouldn’t it?
I came across an unbelievably funny video last year. I then saw it again when a friend shared it on facebook, where once again I died laughing and nearly passed out from laughing so hard and forgetting to breathe.
I had wanted to show it to Hubbie at the time and share the video love, but time got the better of us, and then I forget… ’til tonight.
After showing him something else on facebook, I suddenly remembered. I then summoned my inner
stalker detective, and proceeded to trawl through my friend’s facebook timeline, until I found the God damn post from over a year and a half ago. Finally.
He watched it, with me cacking myself in the background. He found it amusing, but not Laugh Out Loud hilarious like I did.
SO I WILL SHARE IT WITH YOU ALL INSTEAD!
Warning. This is probably funniest to those with children… in particular, Mothers. Because, you know, we know.
And the childless, have no fucking idea.
And that’s why the video is so hilarious. Early into it, I saw myself and Hubbie so vividly with the comedian’s remark “we could have a mini you and mini me…”
(I own no part of this video or any rights associated to it whatsoever).
