This short story might well have been called, "All I Even Needed to Know About Humanity I Learned From Chickens". At times humorous, at times sympathetic, the author reveals the inadequacies of chickens and then points to our own inadequacies. As much as we hate chickens we can despise the things we believe are lacking in our own lives. That’s the philosophy of the story, perhaps it is equally enjoyable as a story about a family that just can’t seem to move far enough away from demented fowl.
On the basis of our suddenly accelerated rate of scientific progress your children's children may well live on another planet. An actual concept of such a life is difficult to get. For instance, can you conceive living in a world where the life or death of your child hinged on the capacity of a portable oxygen tank? The strength of a plastic helmet? A world where distance is not measured in miles but in buckets of liquid air? This is a story of such a world and of tomorrow's children.

An in-depth look about how communication can reflect on an employee's personal attitude towards work in either a positive or negative way. Trigger words are necessary in the workplace if they promote a positive reaction for the employee, such as a positive response or motivation work harder.
