A very scary era....and with Trump as president it gets scarier by the minute. With Korea threatening to blow us up, the haters that he won't condemn....very scary.

I would say, "stupid" over interesting.
People worry about the stupidest shit because they have no real problems in their lives.

"Stupid" is subjective. What is stupid to you could be very serious to them.

Correct. However, there are some people who will become unhinged at what you or I would call stupid, even when they have more pressing problems. It's almost as though if they natter on about the small stuff, they won't have to deal with the big, difficult ones.

Agreed for the most part. The pettier the complaint, the luckier we really are.

I'm curious to know of a time that was thoroughly uninteresting! Studying history makes every time seem at least somewhat interesting...

It seems to be more mindless entertainment than interesting to me. I believe the news is strictly about ratings not actual content, and that leads people to believe in ****. Its sort of sad IMHO.

YES. It's almost obvious that ratings (viewership, readership) are what matter most and not journalistic integrity.

That is almost a meaningless question, because all times are ineresting. I was born right after WWII ended and I can tell you many interesting things happening during any time of the last 70 years. Some of the most interesting things now are research findings that gender identification is more along a continuous spectrum than strictly Male/Female, and that computers and artificial intelligence are progressing to putting human beings out of work in many jobs.

How would you have liked to have been born around 1890, say? Movies, cars, airplanes, electric lights, phonographs... then radio, sound pictures... on and on and on :)

In response to “Interesting or disturbing ?

From Wikipedia - -

"May you live in interesting times" is an English expression purported to be a translation of a traditional Chinese curse. Despite being so common in English as to be known as "the Chinese curse", the saying is apocryphal, and no actual Chinese source has ever been produced.
