The next time you have a Netflix binge, observe the room.

If you're watching a comedy: how many belly laughs do you hear?

If you're viewing a drama: how alert are those around you?

The next time you watch friends interact - in person, on FaceTime, on Zoom - watch.

How common is genuine laughter?

How engaged are the eyes?

Notice the difference?

Humans are our best form of entertainment.  

Streaming services are no substitute - but they are convenient, frictionless, and habit-forming.  They're wonderful for resting, decompressing, and dialing down the mind.

But as a source of true humor, true animation, true enjoyment?  It's no comparison.
