The Internet…

How Did People Do It?

I am going to go ahead and assume that anyone reading this is pretty comfortable and knowledgeable about the internet. Well you get the jist of it right? Maybe you just happened to have found this little page of mine by accident and you have no idea what the internet even is?? Well let me tell you, it is awesome.

Have you ever really thought about what life would be like without the internet? Like really thought about it?

No Google.

No YouTube.

No Facebook.

OH GOD THE HUMANITY!!!

If I went one day without my phone or computer I would absolutely lose my mind. I will say though, that I am not one of those drone looking zombies that I see more and more, and younger and younger, every day walking around with their ear buds in, fingers scrolling, and head down wherever they go. I honestly don’t know how I don’t see more stories of people walking into traffic or onto a rail road track more often. Do these things actually happen? They have to… You really cannot walk down the street without seeing at least 75% of the people you pass on some sort of electronic device.

The Future Mannnnnn….

Now I know that technology and smart phones have made life a whole lot easier for pretty much everybody, but I am kind of starting to feel that we are becoming so much less social as a species and we are on a fast track to living in a world of drones with absolutely zero face-to-face human interaction with anyone. Hey, for some people I am sure that sounds pretty damn sweet and that is fair enough my anti-social friends, but it scares me for our future generations.

Think about how much technology as a whole has advanced in just the last 10 years. If someone from the 20’s saw what a phone looks like today they would thought it could be nothing short of complete and absolute sorcery. Not to mention that this progress has been extremely exponential. Once the internet was born, it felt like technology bred and spread like wildfire and was changing every single day.

This is the part that scares me. Will we ever hit a wall when we have no choice but to say enough is enough? I really don’t see that happening unfortunately which brings me to my walking brain dead zombie apocalypse that I see as being absolutely inevitable.

Can you imagine what the hell these technological geniuses will have thought up in the next 10, 15, 100 years??? I can’t even fathom what that is going to mean for the future.

But who knows; maybe I am just being paranoid? No. No I am not; when I see kids in a play ground playing on a god damn iPad, a little part of me dies on the inside. My childhood was amazing. Sure, we had some video games and TV but nothing like these kids have it today. I didn’t even have a cell phone until I was a senior in high school and I came out OK, right?

I will leave you with this youtube video and let you dwell on it for a minute…
