I've been thinking a lot about the book "The Giving Tree" a lot lately. The kid in the book is such an greedy shit. That fucking tree gives him everything and the kid only stops by to kick it when he needs something. He even let the kid, as an old ass man sit on him. Who the fuck wants some crusty ass dude sitting on him? Especially after he take you for everything you got. That kid is going to fucking die, and leave the fucking tree a stump.

Before cameras were invented, did anyone think it would be possible to capture an image of something? Or electrecity, did someone 100 years before the lightbulb was invented even consider that that could happen? Will there be a new thing in the future that equates to how important these inventions were/are?

wow I think you've missed the point then. The tree wanted nothing more than to give the kid everything it had, and everytime he'd return it gave the tree a sense of purpose. Without the boy, the tree wasn't anything more than just another tree in the woods. and without the tree, the boy wouldn't have had what he needed. Some relationships in life are mutually beneficial on the same levels, but some are a little more complicated than a 1 for 1 exchange. Everybody on earth gives and takes, some people feel love by giving and don't need reciprocation, others feel love by being helped when they need it even when they dont have much to offer the other person.

Your "selfish" interpretation is the one I've heard most from other people, but thats probably because it's the most surface level observation of what was going on in the book.

Anyways, it's interesting at how such large and sometimes indefinable things get tackled by children's books. But then again, if you look at it as the stories you'll have known longer than any others through out your life, it makes sense to have them take on larger and loftier concepts. And sometimes the "simplified" delivery system of a book easy enough to read as a child means that interpretations can vary wildly or get lost in the boiling down.

My folks read it to me as a kid a lot, and I read it on my own even more later on. Eventually I came to realize why it resonated with me so much, I started to recognize that everyone is both the boy & the tree, some more one than the other, but being equalized in the great balance of humanity.
Now I have the cover tattoo'd on my left arm and the last page when the boy is old and sitting on the stump on my right. It reminds me of my folks, and of everything I've taken, and everything I have to give.

Thinking about getting a condom and trying to put it on. I just want to know how it feels. I wonder how you tell which way it rolls. Does it matter which way?

Why the people who invented flight and other modes of transportation are being praised as geniuses but the inventors of toilet paper and toothpaste are forgotten.

Why people expect others to consider their emotional needs in non-emotional situations

Also some Seinfeld inconsistencies. eg: When George talks about how he could've been different if they would have a mantelpiece at home; while at his childhood home there is clearly a mantelpiece.

When you are resolved from the beginning, you will not be perplexed, though you still get the same soaking. This understanding extends to all things.
