Comments: Hope...

I like the way the old Greeks looked at the gods. They figured that the gods were both good and evil just as humans are good and evil and damn if I don't believe that if there is in fact a god she is both good and evil but mostly has a wierder sense of humor than even me.

You know I'll bet half the male population wasn't 100% sure what was in the box, so don't feel bad! I only knew because it was one of the subjects discussed on a past episode of the history channel. Most guys deem the word "BOX" as that beginning with the letter "C" sometimes having the aroma of a fish!

The first time I ever heard it called a box was one time when I was a wise ass punk little boy and the teenage girls were wearing sack dresses--a style of many years ago. I approached a friend of my elder sister and asked her, ( which I had heard the big boys say ) "What you got in da sack?"
And she replied "A Box." And I replied, "Can I see it?" and got slapped and didn't know why until my daddy told me.

I love mythology and like Guy, I think it's pretty cool their Gods had some human follibles.

"as if the mere idea that 'looking on the bright side' can conquer all of the other bad shit in the world"....interesting. I never even thought of it that way before. I always thought that the moral of the story was that hope was just as dangerous as the rest of the contents. Wow. I think your interpretation is better.

.. you may be right, Zonker... but I desperately "hope" you are not... the most perilous place to be is to be truly hopeless.... so surely that was a gift and not a damnation...
