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 bedrest 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.
The Council’s Economy & Environment Directorate are having a ‘Just Do It’ day on Thursday 17 September 2015 and are looking for projects within communities that staff can assist with.
A ‘Just Do It ‘ day is a team building event, with an emphasis on giving back to the community, whether it is planting in parks, tidying up sites, improving buildings, assisting a community group with I.T. skills, helping people with interview skills or visiting / giving talks in sheltered schemes etc.
