Holiday Sin Hell

“Always read something that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it.” – P. J. O’Rourke

I like the sentiment in this quote as a reader. It serves as a reminder to pick books that are relevant to me and that are educational to read. It’s vital to me that, should I die away while reading a book, my interests and character would be positively reflected.

“It’s the squares who know how to fly the fighter planes and operate the missiles and the bombs and work the M-16s. Liberals would still be fumbling with the federally mandated trigger locks.” – P. J. O’Rourke

As a person, I value differences and accept different points of view. Even though I may not agree with this statement, I think that people from all walks of life can have the skills and knowledge to run complicated machinery. It’s not fair to make broad assumptions about people based on what they believe politically.

“If Disney still wants to make Epcot Center futuristic, they could do so by blowing the place up with an atom bomb.” – P. J. O’Rourke

I consider myself a creative and innovative individual, thus I think there are more useful and beneficial ways to make a location futuristic. I value encouraging peace and harmony, hence using destructive methods like an atom bomb is against those principles. To make an experience that is futuristic, I would want to see Disney use cutting-edge concepts and environmentally friendly technologies.

“Visiting Future World is like opening a Chinese fortune cookie to read, ‘Soon you’ll be finished with dinner.” – P. J. O’Rourke

In my opinion I appreciate and find the experience in Future World at Epcot Center to be thought-provoking. The remark emphasizes the thrill and anticipation of what the future can bring, and it serves as a reminder to make the most of the present. I like the concept and the optimistic feeling it conveys.

“At Epcot Center, the Disney corporation has focused its attention on two things greatly in need of Disneyfication: the tedious future and the annoying whole wide world.” – P. J. O’Rourke

For me I consider Epcot Center to be a location that honors other cultures and fosters intercultural understanding as someone who appreciates its distinctive offerings. I appreciate the effort Disney has taken to build a place that stimulates inquiry, education, and appreciation for diversity, even though the future and the world may have its challenges.
