Duncan Trussel is so close to yellow here. He's still in green by shaming people who can't have empathy or compassion for everyone equally but he catches himself  doing this, so I think he's close. He seems high green to me.

Haven't seen many video game examples listed in this thread, but Undertale is a wonderful example of what a stage Green video game can be. For those unfamiliar, it's basically a deconstructionist take on role playing video games, asks the player to have empathy for the Monsters you encounter on your journey, and challenges them to solve problems through means other than violence.

It manages this while also not taking itself too seriously, and is a humorous game filled with puns and amusing scenarios.

I think that alot of nineties Gen X culture that I grew up with can be seen as a sort of transition between the Orange and Green value systems; the Consumerism of Orange mixed with the heart of Green.

That was an incredible episode hits so many points - ideology, propaganda, superiority complex, going along with the masses.

This is Precious Plastic who makes open source machines tutorials - sharing CAD drawings, videos, etc for everyone to build to ultimately fight plastic waste around the world. Definitely worth a watch and all their other videos.

Dude, if you had a kid, you'd by him an ice cream cone. So chill.

We were actually contemplating  on having kids with my partner recently, I'd like to make the kid go gluten-free, sugar-free from the get-go, maybe even dairy-free, so I might not buy him one, but who knows

The biggest thing money buys is not happiness, but freedom to not be someone else's bitch.

Being someone else's bitch can make you very miserable.

But once you stop being someone else's bitch, life will still be difficult and full of new challenges. Now you gotta grapple with the biggest challenge of all: not being your own bitch.

Wow. Deep. So true.
