Okay, so the title sounds a bit silly, but picture this.
A few hundred years ago, there was so much to discover on this planet, people sailed for months at a time in the hopes of finding new lands which would reveal new types of foods and animals and plants. People genuinely believed in things that now a days we can easily say don't exist.
I dunno, maybe I'm being silly, but now a days with pretty much most of earth discovered and no sense of adventure.
Most of us will grow up to get desk jobs and save up to pay off our houses and all that.
We have a few amazing things like music and love, thankfully, because without those things life wouldn't be worth living as far as I'm concerned, but I digress.
Despite all our science and achievements, I just feel that earth is a bit dull these days.
