Is bigger better? I see articles about it all over the internet, but they seem to be limited to penis size. For the record that’s an absurd argument based more in psychological factors than physical ones, and I am not going to go there. It has occurred to me, however, that we alternately love the big and the small depending on the moment. First we had to shrink cell phones to be nearly invisible, now they have to be computers and are getting larger. The boom box is all but gone, replaced with ever shrinking MP3 players. We may be on the verge of the fashion industry finally recognizing they are contributing to our children’s unhealthy body image. All of it is an attempt to make ourselves happy through external means, and so all of it is bound to fail. When will we learn to just be ourselves?
