• Mike Rowe and Castration


    Gah. I don’t know why I like this, but I do. It’s not the whole castration story as much as it’s his assertion that we, as Americans, belittle necessary labor. I also find it intriguing when he talks about how our assumptions of how things are best done is often incorrect.

    I loved his discussion of “anagnorisis” and “peripeteia” and how it related to removing a lamb’s testicles with his teeth. However, my favorite quote is, “I”m reminded by how incredibly wrong I often am.”

    He also talks about how “following your passion” can be a big mistake. Interesting segment.

    I find it refreshing to see skepticism in action, especially from a mainstream personality.

    He covers a lot of territory, but weaves it together far more eloquently than I just did. Rather than rehash the whole presentation, I highly suggest you grab a beverage, sit back and enjoy.

    This is 20 minutes well spent. Enjoy!
