    • Has everyone seen the Netflix Bird Box movie now?  Why did this movie have 45 million views? Personally I enjoyed the movie although the plot holes bothered me enough that I went and purchased the book.
    • Although classified as a horror genre with an apocalyptic setting, I was more interested in the survival skills developed to save the children and future generations. Mallory (Sandra Bullock) went so far as to never name the children referring to them as Boy and Girl to desensitize herself and yet her sole goal was to prepare them and keep them alive. Even though she did not know if the "safe house" still existed, she set out on a river blind folded, to travel 20+ miles in the hope that they could survive the river and find a place to not just live but thrive.
    • So what is the common link between Bird Box and our senses? Even though the children had never seen grass, they knew what it smelled like, even though they had never seen a river, they knew what the river sounded like in calm or raging conditions, they knew what the sound of rain was and the smell of a storm approaching, they learned to identify trees by feeling the trunk and the shape of the leaves but had never seen a grove. They adapted and learned.
