...Are we really?
With many factors playing against us, it seems our only chance for survival this year is just to stay home or our home away from home.
Recent happenings around the world have been building up to the point of catostraphy, with deaths rising in the Middle East region, the recent and unreasoned Virgina massacre, global weather changes due to the greenhouse effect that is in full effect now down to the simplest and probably the most effective of all factors - the media and their blockbuster sequel summer for the year 2007.
Natural calamities have taken quite a toll beginning the year with a Tsunami in The Solomon Islands only 2 years after the biggest ever Indian Ocean earthquake ever to hit the face of the Earth in 2004 leaving a toll of over 100,000 dead victims and millions other injured and without food, natural water resources and most of all, shelter. Forest fires and ice storms had been reigning in on Australia, and some parts of the USA. But what was more stranger was the strong 100 mph winds to hit the city of London, and the flooding of Southern Malaysia by overnight rainfalls drenching the city and its sewer system.
Perhaps it is nature's way of saying that it's fed up with mankind not responding to its plea of bring down the CFC and other gas emissions on a global scales like many countries around the world should be especially those who pulled out of the Kyoto treaty.
This is where it - nature - forces the people to stay at their homes and attend to their own needs and try to escape from everyday life routine and its boredom. Thus implementing the cue for the media in Hollywood, Bollywood and Honeywood (Egyptian cinema) with sequels coming out like potential golden eggs from Hollywood starting it off with Spiderman 3, The Bourne Ultimatum, Pirates of The Carribean: World's End, Rush Hour 3, Live Free or Die Hard (Die Hard 4), and Shrek The Third, to name but a few.
With all these reasons and temperatures rising a few degrees every summer should there be any more reason to leave the comfortability of your air-conditioned home?
