The Events

I was thinking about human’s need to be social, even when their activities are primarily alone in nature. I mean humans will find a way to make any individual activity into a social event. For music, which can be listened to alone, there are concerts and dances. Anime and comic books have conventions. Computer guys have LAN parties and multi-player video games. Athletes have both competitive and non-competitive sports (like marathons and best ball golf). And books have author signings. And I guess you can go into a book store or coffee shop and have a pretentious conversation about the symbology of Faulkner and Hemingway. Just something I was thinking about.
