One Good Thing
« on: June 08, 2007, 05:03:49 AM »
Okay, so this is going to be a practice in Optimism/Idealism.
I'll start by naming something, and you tell me just ONE GOOD THING about it. Then you yourself name something, the next person gives a good thing, and so on. This "thing" can be a person, a movie, a book, a concept, a building, a whatever. And try to come up with a sincerely good thing, just to make it more challenging.

Okay, I'm starting this thread with a hard one:

He has a very soothing voice, I bet he sounds lovely reading Goodnight Moon to his grandkids.

It encouraged Roosevelt to fund odd projects, which had the government backing a lot of Original American art and architecture, not to mention the artist themselves.

Anacondas 2: Hunt for the Blood Orchid  (I hate this movie so much. It stole two hours from my life.)

Er, it apparently gave the nerks at the IMDB board woodies all round for being "better than the first one" (that seems to be the consensus at IMDB weirdly).

Ooh, I just learned about this last semester-
It lowered the number of people, and thus the number of workers. Suddenly employers had to start making competitive wages. This meant a rise in the quality of life for the survivors of the Plague, and overall gave the concept of a "Middle Class" it's start. It also led to religious reform later on, a lot of scholors think.

Depending on your viewpoint, this may be a good thing: It encouraged various fringe Christian groups to either go mainstream or join together in resistance, that resistance eventually becoming the backers behind the Protestant Reformation.

It gave us one of the funnier bit in Blazing Saddles:

"Cletus I told you to wash up after cross burning"

in a similar vein

He was so thouroughly evil that almost everybody can agree to hate him. It's rare to have someone who doesn't get the "He wasn't as bad as we made him out to be" treatment. (At least, convincingly.)

Such a broad concept... I guess it does help keep relationships dynamic and interesting. If there wasn't the possibility of infidelity, marrige vows wouldn't mean as much.
