You Have A Moral Obligation To Your Soul To Seek Out
And Find Joy In Good Things.

“Give it a second; it’s going to space!”
That’s the advice Louis CK gives Conan O’Brien about technology and cell phones in the clip below. The advice stems from the comedian’s observation that we’re developing into a nation of entitled whiners who take literally everything for granted… to the point where any minor hitch in daily routine becomes grounds for angry ranting, incessant complaining, and even full-blown rage.
If your smartphone, for instance, refuses to load your Facebook page in the expected 0.4 seconds, you get impatient and implore it to “COME ON, YOU STUPID PHONE!”
We’ve all been there.
Traffic jams. Slow moving drive-thru lanes. Unfilled water glasses at restaurants. Delayed flights. Weather outages on DirecTV. Discovering broken eggs after you get home. Not enough likes on your Facebook post.
Major injustices. Unacceptable delays. Unforgivable mistreatment.
