    We like to pride ourselves as a species and say that we've evolved so much due to our technology, yet all we see is people getting dumber by the minute and most people use technology to spread idiocy and believe it.

    I think this video has given a bit of a simplistic view when it compares the architecture of today and then. Yes, a lot of buildings now are conventionally ugly, but their architects reasoned that we don't need to spend millions of pounds on extravagant fountains or fancy sculptures on the wall

    when i was 12 i had a hard time understanding why greatest artists in history are so obsessed with naked people.
    now i understand they're not just 'naked', but i'm still having a hard time why millenials make songs about butts.
