Each year we give thanks for the things that are important to us. We all know this is the basis for Thanksgiving. Most people give shout outs to their friends and family – I feel these shouts are something that goes without saying.
To avoid the banality of such a proclamation I have listed ten things that I truly am thankful for. Each unit of thanks plays a major role in things that I am passionate about.
Now, don’t think I am some sort of misanthrope with no friends or family. I love my family and friends above all else. After that then you have these ten things:
1. The Hydrogen Cycle
This is probably the most important thing in my life and yours. If you’ve ever admired a mountain or looked down into a canyon, you have to thank the hydrogen cycle. Oh, and not to mention this is the reason for SNOW, ’nuff said.
Without friction I couldn’t run, bike, skateboard, drive a car, sit on a chair, sit a glass on a table or really do anything else without sliding uncontrollably through life.
Let’s give it up to yeast for liking sugar and pooping alcohol.
The greatest game ever played.
5. Audio frequencies
Makes music possible.
I love vegetables and other plants.
7. Silver Halide Crystals
Allows us to capture light.
Who doesn’t like a good heart-racing moment?
Hint: I am not thankful for asphalt because I can drive my car on it.
10. The Earth’s tilt
Tis the seasons.
