Happy Friday Video - 4/16/10

This video should be beamed out to the depths of Space, if only to convey the following message: Yes, compared to other lifeforms or possible civilizations, we are indeed massively fucked up. But it is our capacity to understand that, and to not uniformly convert to that fucked up school of thought that redeems us. It is the capacity of empathy, thought, and understanding that counters our capacity for bloodlust, revenge, and “purity”. In the end, we’re only Human…and that is both scary and spectacular all at once.
