The Story of Stuff


This is a must seen mind-blowing video for all of us. By that I mean: see, listen, understand, and above all react.

I've always loved the word "stuff" but I never knew there could be such a story behind it! I loved this video and loved it even more when it said "Iraq" and laughed at "Bush"'s name when it came up. Knowing this story is part of "know the whole story" and knowing the truth about wars, poverty, ignorance and how the world is taking steps towards the abbey.

Just like the missing pieces in the "incomplete diagram" you originally saw, each of the person of the people you saw has a story. It's a global issue and your job is at least help to spread awareness to make this planet a better place.

If you're into websites and want to know everything about it then please check the official website of The Story of Stuff

That's all for now
and I wish I can Host a Screening

I imagine that's an indication of the "stuff" our children are being taught in school today.

Sorry, attawie . . . . I'm not impressed.

I watched the two minute clip you posted and it seems quite fascinating....as soon as I find some time (school and school work seems to rob me of it all) I'm going to have to watch the full version :)

I do not have an iPod.

We have a problem in the U.S. with too much stuff being thrown out. Our landfills are almost full! People need to recycle a lot more. I try to recycle as much as I can. We have places to recycle paper, glass, and various plastics.

That corporation is really fat! I think it must be Exxon. ;)

I think corporations have way too much power in the U.S. They spend a lot of money to essentially bribe politicians at all levels into doing what is best for them, not what is best for the people.

If I had fast internet, maybe I would watch more.

I agree Attawie, we all have to try to do something to make the world a better place.

attawie,

"to make this planet a better place."


I believe we need first to make our country Iraq, a better place. I don't need to tell you about the chronic problems that should be tackled to afford all the Iraqis a basic standard of living.

Although, it's not an easy task but as you said we must take actions and whatever progress we achive, it will contribute to other efforts to make the whole planet a better place.

Thanks,

Anonymous,
I'm not trying to impress you. That's a true story going on and we should at least know it.

Dear Moonlight :)
You just need to take care of your study for now. There will be time for you to watch this one. Right now your goal to make this world a better place is to do your job ie study hard and make us proud of you with your great marks :)

David,
I don't have an iPod too. but I do have a lot of electronic stuff instead. The full video reveals some points about recycling. I hope you'll get a chance to watch the full version which is a 20 minutes video.

Khalid I,
It is true that we need to make our country a better place first but I guess the world has moved on and the earth is till moving, so why wait while we can do more than one thing at a time? :)

The war has changed the environment in as well as the entire region at least we can start to heal what can be healed.

KJ,
Thank you for correcting me. I edited the post.

Yep, I thought it is very enlightening :)

attawi,

No waiting or sitting in the shadow taking the role of tambal abo rutbah but the Iraqis inside have our beloved country that needs so much work and those of us who are abroad for the time being, could -as you suggested- work for this or that region but always we have to think about Iraq, it's my view but I respect any other view.

Thanks for taking up such an intersting topic.

What's next?

I suggest to do a fact finding research about the environmental pollution in our country.

Khalid I,

tambal abo rutbah! I haven't heard that mathal for ages now! I should really find more Iraqi friends.

I understand your point of view, and I've read a paper (which I'll try to find it to send it to you) about how the movement of military vehicle in the desert from the south of Iraq and in west Iraq had to do with changing the climate.

So hopefully other countries would work on moderating and minimizing pollution at least to balance what's going on.

Touta!
You stay focused on your books youg lady. Why confused!
