Why are some things irrationally awesome? There is much in life we like with no good reason, the answer is simply: “because I like it”. Let’s start with the featured image on this post, a Jedi with a light saber overlooking an amazing scene. Very cool!
Dragons, why is a giant fire-breathing lizard with wings awesome?
Maybe because it’s red! Oh wait, yes, I’m a little irrationally obsessed with red too…
An excellent specimen:
Beagles, not sure why but I just like to look at them. I feel like King Haggard in the Last Unicorn. Only if I could command a Red Bull to round all of them up for me…
My beagles had puppies, very cuddly!
The only thing more awesome than a beagle is a beagle ninja! See my dog climbed his fence and is walking the balance beam…
Mongoose, see it take on a Cobra!
I could say it’s from the dozens of times I watched the movie Riki Tiki Tavi as a child, but why did I want to watch it dozens of times…?
Um, not sure…
Swords, so I can stab someone! er, wait… I typically avoid even killing insects if possible…
Rational likes for comparison
- Food (needed for survival)
- Fair Maidens (human survival)
- Winning (helps attract a fair maiden and get food)
Or perhaps, the key takeaway from this post is: if you want to sell me something, it should be a red dragon-beagle-mongoose-goat-mantis perched in red-leafed tree wielding a red tinted sword or at least you should find some way to throw that into the deal!
