Are we getting too dumb for technology?
I recently started to watch Californication, and even if I’ve only watched the first 6 episodes of the first season, I can safely say that I love it, and I’m going watch it all! For you who have no idea what Californication is, it’s about a writer who has his life fucked up with alcohol and several women in his bed. For some of you this might not sound so bad right? but when you’re hopeless in love with your ex girlfriend it has to suck.
But I’m not really here to talk about the tv-show and all that, but as I watched it yesterday I was kinda amazed by some of the lines the main actor had. And some of them were kinda really true, and it made me wonder if it was true
Here is one of my favourite quotes so far:
[People] seem to be getting dumber and dumber. I mean we have all this amazing technology and yet computers
have turned into basically four figure wank machines. The Internet was supposed to set us free, democratize us,
but all it’s really given us is Howard Dean’s aborted candidacy and 24-hour a day access to kiddie porn, you know.
And people don’t write anymore, they blog; instead of talking, they text; no punctuation, no grammar.
LOL this and LMFAO that. You know it just seems to me that it’s just a bunch of stupid people
psuedo-communicating with a bunch of other stupid people in a proto-language that
resembles more what cavemen used to speak than the king’s English.
I don’t know who Howard Dean is and kiddie porn? dear god… but I think he has a good point when he says that people get dumber and dumber as we get more and more technology. For those who know me, know that I’ve been saying that the kids today just get dumber and dumber, and I honestly believe that the technology and the internet is the cause of this. Now in before haters, I know that older people most likely said the same about me and my age when we were kids, but I just feel like they get more and more stupid. Also ever since the internet people seem to be fucking up the language and just common grammar.. Lolz u c dat raight?! I R so smartz!! yeah.. way to go peeps!
That’s what I got from the quote, or what I could write down at least, but it really got me thinking.. We’ll see what will come from this later on!
But yeah, that’s it from me at this time, I’ll see you later, Mike is over and out!
