Thanksgiving Flashback in February

This post is breaking three rules.   First of all, I have no reason to believe that the originators of this comic, The Joy of Tech, are Christians*, though I think in this case they got it right on.   Secondly, this is totally off-season and relates to Thanksgiving (or even Christmas to a lesser degree) but I figured this was as good a time as any… truth is truth, right?   Thirdly, I’m not sure about the ‘reprint’ policy on this one; I looked around the site and couldn’t find it; so this may be here for a short time only.

It’s strange how holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas have become so dysfunctional in some families.   In this case, giving thanks before the meal can’t be done with a straight face, because all the things for which we in the west are “thankful,” are often things we have gained through excessive consumption.    If you’re into tech generally or gadgets in particular, you can scroll through a vast library of Joy of Tech comics at Geek Culture.
