Today's top enjoyment

        Have you ever gone sky diving or parachuted out of a moving plane? I've been thinking about extreme sports a little bit today and thought about what it would be like trying to explain to someone who lived 150 years ago what it is we do for entertainment in the 21st century. Think about it. They might discuss some music perhaps, writing and reading and some other small normal things. Once you bring up mountain climbing, extreme ironing (yes extreme ironing), skydiving, roller coasters, pretty much anything that's supposed to be fun or give you a rush nowadays would either be seem as amazing, a complete waste, or so stupid that he tries to ruin the past to make sure it never happens.
         However on the flip-side, the man from 150 years ago would probably like one sport that we would find completely pointless and lame. Curling.
He is pondering going and inventing curling after having
 heard of the worlds most pointless sport.
        On a completely different note, today I enjoyed something. I enjoyed waking up and rising out of bed to pull back my curtain and see a complete white sky. No sign of the sun anywhere. It was not raining, it was not windy. The weather was quiet, white like a sheet of paper covered the sky. Quite breathtaking really.


  1. I don't know. An article I read on Cracked suggest they did some pretty badass things back in the day too.
