Friday fun for March 30, 2007

Sometimes you just need a hug

The weekend's almost here and it's been a tough week in the blogosphere. So I thought it would be nice to see something that makes you feel good about stuff. And I found it.

Le me introduce you to FreeHugsCampaign.org, the official home of the Free Hugs Campaign. You might have heard about this already. It was started by a guy from Australia who just wanted to give people a hug.
Sometimes, a hug is all what we need.

Free hugs is a real life controversial story of Juan Mann, A man whos sole mission was to reach out and hug a stranger to brighten up their lives.

In this age of social disconnectivity and lack of human contact, the effects of the Free Hugs campaign became phenomenal.

As this symbol of human hope spread accross the city, police and officials ordered the Free Hugs campaign BANNED. What we then witness is the true spirit of humanity come together in what can only be described as awe inspiring.

In the Spirit of the free hugs campaign, PASS THIS TO A FRIEND and HUG A STRANGER! After all, If you can reach just one person...
It's turned into quite the movement.

Go ahead and watch the video on the site...then tell me that you're not feeling better about things.

Who ever heard of a funny economist?

Well...it happens.

I came across this video on YouTube that fits my idea of Friday fun.

It's very, very funny.

I wish my professors at University could deliver lectures like this!

Gosh, I wish my economics profs had been THIS straightforward!
Thanks for sharing, Dave.

You're welcome. And isn't it neat how it also demonstrates that if you've got good content, the grainy video is no problem. Good content is the key whether in blogs, podcasts, videos - no matter what it is.

The "standup economist" certainly was that! Good for a laugh. And I had seen the Free Hugs campaign earlier but thanks for the reminder. I imagine a woman offering free hugs would do better than a man...
