    Beautifully executed animation. Unfortunately though I have to disagree with old Mr. Tyson. I think that if there were flowers that were exactly like real flowers that lived forever I would definitely buy those and give them to someone instead of the dying kind. Its the fakeness of plastic that makes plastic flowers unattractive. Also, I think the whole thing about our expiration dates being our motivator is definitely true for the type of person who is very responsible maybe, but I myself don’t actually think about that very much. Even though I should.
