Two articles ion ths morning’s media got me thinking how soft we are becoming.
The first is a piece from Max Allen in The Australian on wine and how we’re not into the big, bold reds we once consumed in the 1990s. These days it’s “pinots and syrahs” (that’s French for Shiraz).
The wines lack “balls”.
In much like the way kids use to play outside and be adventuresome, the second article, from The Daily Telegraph, touches on this theme. It claims the increasing use of the internet has turned us into a “nation of nerds”.
We’ve got more leisure time, but we’re not outside. No. We’re watching YouTube, or tweeting on posting to Facebook.
I don’t see that many kids playing at the park any more.
Come on people, get off the web and get a (Aussie) life.
