being a human is so cool
I love being a human. One of the reasons why I love being a human is because being a human allows me to have this concept of "cool." It is one concept among many that I share with many other humans, even if all of us humans have different perceptions of "cool." I think it is cool that I keep accidentally typing Ø instead of " because my keyboard is set on Danish. I think Danish is cool because it has three vowels that English doesn't. Sometimes when I speak Danish I feel cool, though mostly I feel goofy trying to spit out the consonants. Wikipedia has a definition for "cool". It is somewhere along the lines of hip. Jack Kerouac was cool. He was an original hipster. Beat was cool; beat came from jazz. Jazz is cool because it lets the rules go. Being human is cool because being human means being able to do whatever.
