First off, I'd like to point out that people are idiots. Plain and simple. What blows my mind, though, is that people tend to nit-pick at the things they disagree with. As I had stated a little bit ago in a forum, it's like all everyone is trying to do this day and age, is tell people they are wrong. They don't want to listen to reasoning, they don't want to hear the whole story, they just want a reason to bitch, complain, try to make someone look stupid, and basically feel like "I'm Mr/Ms. Know It All".
Well, sorry to burst your bubble, but that is not how it works. Sure, you can disagree with me all you want, but that doesn't make either of us more wrong/right than the other. In fact, WHO CARES?! WHY does is HAVE to be about who is wrong and who is right? It just doesn't make any sense to me!
In fact, I worded it a little bit better earlier, so here is my direct quote:
I just don't understand why people do this. It confuses me. Not only do you come off as rude, and Mr./Mrs. "I Think I Know It All" but some of these people prove to be just as stupid as what they are trying to make others look.
Maybe my logic is far different than theirs or something."
There, that sums it up a little more....
Second point I wish to get at before I end this little rant.
Okay, I'm going to sound like a hypocrite, because well, look at the day and age we are in. EVERYONE uses a form of technology now-days. There is no escaping it. If you put two pictures side by side of what today's world looks like, and a picture of what day life was like 70 years ago, we have progressed SO MUCH.
Back then, in order to get things like eggs and clothes, you had to have chickens and buy it from a farmer, and you had to MAKE your own clothes and such. When they went to school, they didn't have computers, and cell phones. Much less internet and texting! Now days, teachers/instructors have to worry about their students texting and surfing the web during a lecture. How is that making life easier?! If you ask me, it's damn stressful.
In middle school I hardly ever saw a problem with cell phones. In high school, and even in my college classes, I see teachers craning their necks to see if students are paying attention or playing with their iPods or phones. It's ridiculous!
We have become LAZY!
My dad told me several times that while growing up, he didn't have internet at his finger tips. If he wanted to know something bad enough, he had to hit the books and physically SEARCH for it. Sure, we have it easy now, compared to back then, but is it really for the best? America has a far higher rate of obesity in this country than EVER before. Do I blame it on technology?
You bet your sweet ass I do.
Granted, it's not ALL because of technology, but you'd have to be blind as a bat, or really stupid, to not see some correlation in all of this.
It may have made things a little bit more on the easy side for us, but in the process, it is also destroying us to some extent.
That ends my rant of the day.
