Snapshot of History?

This is Yahoo’s trending feed, Sunday, April 19, 2015 at 1:40pm.

Now, what in the heck (if anything) does this say about our society? Especially since up to seven hundred refugees died in the Mediterranean Sea this morning when their boat capsized as they were trying to flee Libya. What is most important to any certain society at any given time? Their immediate needs, ie ceiling fans. Now, compare that with what historians choose to cover (I am sure they’d opt for the plight of the refugees and the larger implications of it.) It certainly makes one think, though. Perhaps we need more ceiling fan historians.
