this is an excellent point and also i want to clarify: politicians don’t talk how much the military ‘loses’ because of how very many privately held companies are pocketing that money, and also forking some of it right back as lobbying/bribes to an awful lot of politicians.
kind of funny that the only money you consistently hear about being 'lost’ is taxpayer money that ends up serving the tax payers.
everyone in the comments like “its just focaccia” “he’s never seen someone bake focaccia before?” shut the fuck up
And also, everyone has different experiences and an experience can be a person’s first time, even if it’s something you’ve seen over and over again. I was going on a hike in Central Jersey with a bunch of kids from Trenton, inner city. There were squirrels and birds singing. Typical suburban forest. It was a normal hike for me but this was the wilderness for them and they were excited and frightened because this was the furthest they had ever been from the city and they didn’t have any idea what a poisonous plant looked like or where snakes might be and it was all exciting and new, this suburban New Jersey forest. It’s really nice when you can just celebrate the exciting moment with a person without showing off how much of the world you have experienced.￼￼
Imagine not being grateful by the mere sight of creation and the simple things the human does to express themselves and enjoy life.
