A bright light on Youtube

Last night, before I gave up on staying awake any longer, I flipped over to Youtube and encountered the work of a young man who really impressed me.

He seemed to be in his late teens or early twenties. But his video was not about clubbin' or hotties or pranks - the usual annoying obsessions of a male of that age range. It was a documentary -- as good as any that I've seen on Animal Planet -- of the various amphibians and reptiles that live in his state.

It was so refreshing to see a young man so respectful and passionate about nature, not flippant or cruel.

Here it is, my first attempt to "embed."

Hey that's very cool.

I believe in the 80-20 theory that holds that 80 percent of people are decent, and 20 percent are wastes of oxygen. Thus, 8 out of 10 young people are great, and 2 out of 10 are the ones who get 80 percent of the press, unfortunately. Good observations.

this time your post reminded me of a song. Wind of changes by scorpios.
Maybe because I was thinking that people are changing, for the better.

Kat: Agreed.

Claudia: Agreed.

Ian: Agreed.

Ela: Perhaps. We don't go to public executions anymore and bring the children along. But we watch the equivalent on tv.

I watched only part of this documentary, and it seems to be done very gently. Nice.

Ela, You captured the key concept. The young man is very gentle, and I think if I were a Lady, I would find that very attractive in a man.
