I loved that TV show as a youngster
But little did I know the lessons on life and glimpse into the future Mork had
I just thought he was hilarious
But as we mature into a race dependent on online social platforms
At a time where we are more connected than ever we are become more and more isolated
spending more and more time alone
leading to a society looking out for #1
a society looking to get what it can out of life without stopping to think about the impact on others
in gyms its no different nobody cares about helping others into health and fitness
showing them a way to get them hooked and love it
they usually just feel dejected and walk away after the egos and the arseholes take over pushing them out
and Mork seen all that coming (see below)
luckily suffolk strength academy is different, a gym that heeded Morks advice and looks to help the little people, the people determined to get somewhere but have never fitted into the typical gym environment
we are here to help some ordinary people do extraordinary things
everything we do here we do together, to help others, thats how we create our own success
"Mork & Mindy: In Mork We Trust (#1.21)" (1979)
Orson: The report, Mork.
Mork: This week I discovered a terrible disease called loneliness.
Orson: Do many people on Earth suffer from this disease?
Mork: Oh yes sir, and how they suffer. One man I know suffers so much he has to take a medication called bourbon, even that doesn't help very much because then he can hear paint dry.
Orson: Does bed rest help?
Mork: No because I've heard that sleeping alone is part of the problem. You see, Orson, loneliness is a disease of the spirit. People who have it think that no one cares about them.
Orson: Do you have any idea why?
Mork: Yes sir you can count on me. You see, when children are young, they're told not to talk to strangers. When they go to school, they're told not to talk to the person next to them. Finally when they're very old, they're told not to talk to themselves, who's left?
Orson: Are you saying Earthlings make each other lonely?
Mork: No sir I'm saying just the opposite. They make themselves lonely, they're so busy looking out for number one that there's not enough room for two.
Orson: It's too bad everybody down there can't get together and find a cure.
Mork: Here's the paradox sir because if they did get together, they wouldn't need one.
