Maybe they can't find any trees... but then who would want to climb a naturally occurring object when you can punch little tiny buttons, or wiggle a game controller, and watch fake stuff on a piece of glass?

These days, the stuff that passes for fun I can't understand. A lot of it, anyway. Thank god for books!
