    Um, try emotions, and feelings, and attitudes of human beings. maybe you could also talk about human being physically compared to spiritually? I don't know if thats what you want, but there are my two cents.

    You could start with what jimbob said. You could also start with a quote from a sociologist or psychologist about the topic. I would probably start with either Sigmond Frued or Carl Jung. That would probably score extra points.
    I would say a good thesis for something like that would start with a quote, followed by some statistics and/or opinions, then some observations, followed by some loose conclusion.

    The first thing I though of was that humans get around better then cabbages ... but a cabbage can roll pretty good if something gives them a start . ;)

    Sorry L4M , but I think others could give you better advice , assuming that you want a good grade . :)
