Why Do People Major on the Minor?

Some spectators deem it as Aussie's Big Fuss on the Plastic Bag Ban.

Woolworths probably had no idea that going earlier than Coles in implementing the single-use plastic bag ban would create such a backlash on them. This environmental friendly practice is no stranger to many shoppers. Even in Australia, many shops have not been issuing bags for years now. ALDI is one of these. To regular shoppers of Woolies, it's a wonder how any of them would fail to grasp the information given by Woolworths months in advance. I've been seeing the signs in shops and online at their website.

Stressing out on missing simple information like that is a wonder for me. Life and joy are too valuable to lose over flimsy matters like bans on plastic bags.  It's funny and sad to see headlines like this:

Short Story: Lost

Lost Once lost, can it still be found? I feel I've lost something,  Yet I cannot perceive what. It's formless. It's faceless. I'm groping in the dark. I rack my brain trying to trace its existence. It's lost to oblivion. Emptiness, an evidence of its former presence. Something was there. Now, it's not. At the last, light flickers. Understanding comes. What's lost is not something but someone. What's someone is me. A new query arises. Once lost, can I still be found? -©AnaMenez

Movie: Lessons and Quotes From Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Another installment for this Jurassic Dinosaur franchise may be a bore and a stretch for some. While watching the 2 hours and 28 mins long of a movie, there were quite many predictable outcomes and commonplace scenes and dialogues. But here are some notable lines and lessons from the movie:
There are boundaries you should never cross. The Jurassic World franchise shows us the perils of tampering with nature. Man has achieved remarkable feats and discoveries. By crossing boundaries, man has created a wealth of inventions that has made health and living conditions better. Care must be exercised in choosing what boundaries are morally and intellectually beneficial to cross. Cause and effect must be weighed.
I. In speaking before an executive session, Dr Ian Malcolm shared a number of insightful thoughts:
