The Natatorium

An emporium of oddities from around the world, complete with somewhat informative plaques that almost never match the item they are meant to be describing.

As I had hoped it would, the previous post spawned an exciting political discussion, which I believe is still ensuing in the comments of said post.

I thought I would hate the movie last night, but really, I loved it. I was so filled with youthful enthusiasm for activism... I wanted to save the tribal people who were threatening mass suicide if their land was invaded! The film just gave me more to think about, and I wish the director had made one about 9/11 and the War on Terrorism/Iraq, because this film focused on the 2000 Election. Btw, the film is entitled "The Party's Over", if any of you want to look it up.

I'm really loving all the responses from all of you who are commenting, thanks a lot! I hope politics come up more often. Lots of people I know say they absolutely *hate* politics, for whatever reason, but I really think everyone needs to be educated on what's going on in the world, figure out what they believe needs to be done, and to take action. It's our world, and if we stand by and let others be a force for change without being one ourselves, there's no way for us to guarantee the world will change for the better. There's no way to guarantee that anyway, but we at least have to try. Otherwise, what's the point?
