Barry Schwartz on The Paradox of Choice
You know how at times you look at your 2 legged with envy? Yea, it's true. JD envies thumbs because he wants to drive... Wendy envies 2leggeds because she thinks they fear nothing and they have all the power...
I, myself have had my moments when the green monster enveloped me. After all, opposing thumbs and complete freedom are quite appealing. I do have to tell you that momma claims freedom is fictional...and she points to gravity as her most basic argument. But, from where I sit, freedom is real and with freedom come infinite choices... and there is the rub... apparently.... watch:
Oh am I glad to be a Bichon Frise!!! That whole opposing thumb thing pales when you consider all these complications! And you know what? All I want to worry about is my next belly rub.
