Consider "human" activity, in it's entirety, on this planet.
Civilized? How dare you call us civilized!!!
Mankind functions at "180" degrees from the definition of the word!
err... I would pretty much go with that... we all monkeys inside!
I'm not going to debate the actions of others besides myself. As for being civilized? I am. That's about all I have to say about it.
You know what Shaz? I'm going to take you at your word on that topic.
Im a tiger on the prowl... Im not civilized.... animalistic desires and tribal instinct...
There are too few of us!
We can't, as "Hoover" said, (paraphrase) out man 'em and out gun 'em!
I would say humankind is at a tangent to civilized, thats only 90 degrees.
the ones who aren't civilized are usually in cages called jails/prisons
or in the Democratic....er...I mean Communist Party.
You know, your attitude, and poke and fun at politicians and political parties is getting really boring.
Yeah I know. It's just that it's getting vewwwy boring to see the Democrat Party hold such sway over moral zombies. I'm afraid to NOT keep speaking up 'cause they certainly need SOME kind of help.
"speaking up" is not the same thing as trolling around forums and putting random insults into conversations that have nothing to do with politics whatsoever.
It has everything to do with politics.
And the insults aren't random.
Let me put it this way-----IF Mr. Obama would ever respond to any of my complaints, I might not feel like I need to speak up everywhere I go.
But hey, the coward hasn't got the guts to speak to someone who HAS the guts to tell him he's wrong to his face.
How do you know - and why do you think you know - who the man does or doesn't talk to in the course of a day????
Sorry Brenda, but when you throw out ridiculous statements like that it is hard to take you seriously.
Now, let's stop hijacking qwarks nice little forum, eh ?
But.... well...gee....qwark says humans are uncivilized.
Perhaps qwark would like to post HIS definition of "civilized" and we can go from there with replies or retorts or ...gulp...even the proper definition and comparison of humans and non-humans.
I'll sit back and watch until I feel an inhuman urge to jump in!
I just got back from the gym.
I was working out with some "uncivilized" "Chicano" friends.
Have ya been keeping that "action" rollin' along?
I start 'em you guys finish 'em...:-)
PS I see yer gettin' alota action from the primitive, uncivilized religionists....:-)
That goes in cycles. I poked my head out of the hole for a little conversation, and I didn't duck it back in quick enough.
Thanks for your input to my health hubs.. I'm done entering any into the contest now. It was an awful lot of work for me
So - my take on civilization is the Hooters motto.
"Delightfully tacky... yet unrefined."
I put that pic up first because it is hilarious and second because it's a great example of my idea. When I hear "civilized society", I kinda picture snooty, over-dressed culture snobs who decide for the rest of us what our standards are supposed to be. Maybe that is only my own hang-up, I don't know. It's like when people go about declaring that everybody who disagrees with them must be flat out stupid. They may believe they are acting civilized, but they are in the "un" category for sure.
Civilized people would NEVER approve of chicken wings served by boobs.
Er, waitresses with big boobs I mean.
But the rest of us who get a kick out of it are not just a bunch of low brow losers.
I like things that are delightfully tacky! Uncivilized tho they may seem...
I'm very sure I swerved way of track from your OP, but that is where my brain took it.
take it easy!
You're entirely right - at least in my opinion.
I consider myself extremely civilized but I do have doubts about many others!
You spelled congratulations wrong.
teehee I feel so picky tonight.
Must be that uncivilized neanderthalish gene in me.
Oh wait! There's no such thing. Must be a throwback memory of the caveman crap I learned in science class....
qwark, this is the first thing that popped in my head:
The Hooters girls
Who's calling who civilized? I'm sure it was said tongue in cheek, whoever said it
I'm civilized at times...I let my self go wild in my dreams and daydreams though
Being "civilized" is an ideal. It's a moving target that will always be just out of reach because it will always be relative to where we actually are and what we can dream of as defined by our religious myths, social philosophers or whatever other "what if" scenarios we envision for ourselves outside the ever-evolving reality of our day-to-day.
