Did not want to really rant today, but I am really upset that the first meme I did is not gone. Well, hopefully a new Friday meme will come and do a lot better. I really use meme’s as a crutch. I would love to have more time to write but I really do not with work and life in general. Meme’s allow me to do guided writting but today I need to write and I do not have the meme outlet.
So, one of my friends got me into a discussion that I tought was pretty simple. I stated an opinion and I thought it would not be something that would cause any kind of controversy at all… but I guess it did… so now I have to rant about it to see what people really think.
As you have read I just came back from Las Vegas. The trip out there was due to one of my good friends getting married, Vegas is not what I would call in my top 10 destinations, but if a friend is going there and I can join him or her I would go. I like vacationing with friends, it adds a new layer to things. That said I was not going to miss that wedding if I could help it, there was reasons for me not to go, but I did my best and enjoyed the time out there. Many people at this point will be thinking, why would anyone not jump at any opportunity to go to Vegas, and for me it was that I am not a gambler. Now that I have been there for pleasure (I had been there for business before) I have reasons to go back, but also reasons why I still prefer other places for my vacations.
Now that the set up is out of the way, the topic is Nature vs ManBuilt. I think that Vegas has awesome structures, and even though a lot of them are just replicas for things that exist somewhere else, they are still very cool to look at. My opinion though is that nothing that man can build will ever top God’s creation in my eyes. If I was given the oportunity to go to New Zeland and Vegas, there would be no question as to which one to pick. Or even if I was in Vegas, which I did not get to do because of time constraints, I would be more interesting on going motorcycle riding in to the Grand Canyon than just riding a big bike up and down the strip. I am not saying that man built structures are not beautiful… I am just saying that for me Nature is a lot more awe inspiring. What do you think?
