Friday Five: Extinction

Friday, April 10, 2015
Last week's Friday Five:
  1. What's the coolest of the extinct animal species? Steller's sea cow. 'Cause, hello, sea cows. They were like manatees the size of whales!

  2. What classification (however you want to define that) of human being seems to be an endangered species? Genuinely selfless, kind-hearted people. 

  3. How do you feel about the disappearance of the neighbourhood video rental store? Kinda sad, but only for nostalgic reasons. I miss the adventure of going in the store, browsing all the new releases or old films that looked interesting. I don't miss rewinding tapes, though. Or paying the late fee (and I always paid that damn late fee). Realistically, they had to go. It's cheaper to buy DVDs these days than rent, and it's way more efficient to download movies or TV shows.

  4. What's an older technology that you consider better than a newer technology that's replaced it? Books. I just like good ol' bound paper books. Fuck those fucking e-readers. 

  5. What no-longer-available snack item do you miss most? Oh, god, there are so many. McDonald's Shake Shake Fries, Good Humor Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream Bars (apparently, these are still available in the US, but I haven't seen them here in quite some time), Flintstones Push Up Sherbet Pops, Rice Krispies Treats Cereal, Soda-Licious Soda Pop Fruit Snacks, Snapple Elements (my favourite flavour was Rain, a.k.a. Agave Cactus)... And, finally, Clearly Canadian! It was my favourite childhood drink and was discontinued years ago, but they put out an incentive to bring it back (if 25,000 cases are pre-ordered, it will be put back into production), and they're actually starting production this May (I myself pre-ordered a case each of Mountain Blackberry and Orchard Peach)!
