I surf the web, so you don't have to.

I also learn things. Like, today for example. I didn't know that the so called "tenth planet" now has a moon. Buddhists think gays in the Bardo state are bored and want "real" sex. I also learned the web is full of lies and crap. I learn about the speed of ice melting due to global warming (then why is it cold here today!). I learn about the latest blown up people in Iraq, the starving kids in Rwanda. The latest bombings, the last space flight, the new advances in science....

But we knew that.

I always find surfing the internet for interesting stories fun and time well spent. After all, you guys and gals here at codewolf.com get a condensed version of what I read every day here as well as a amalgamation of the surfing habits of hundreds, thousands of,  the other members just like you that submit something interesting.

When you condense the amount of information down and take it in, it's missing the whole picture somehow. I think the internet is a great tool for disseminating information, but it removes the individual from the scene; a scene where that individual wouldn't be in in the first place, somewhere they probably wouldn't want to be anyway.  This great tool of communication has brought us closer but has also put people at the far reaches of tragedy where they can commiserate in solitude. We donate money to causes more, due to the shared misery of individuals spread by messages on the net yet never have to connect with the person that was helped. That's good, I think...

Internet dating, internet food ordering, internet buying, internet sports, internet gambling, internet jesus....

I think I'll stay at home tonight.

From the "want real sex link": "We might even say gay people come into the world as bodhisattvas." Oh boy Oh boy! I'm a bodhisattvas! I can go to sleep a happy man now. Thanks cw!

Oops, that should be "I'm a bodhisattva"

Well the internet is fine, but it's not "real life" Sometimes it's good to shut it down for a bit and experience reality. People tend to only pick and choose the stuff that they consider to be the truth and reject the rest. (just look at NeoCon!) And a lot of people "create" stuff that's not at all "real world" but is presented as such. Sometimes I think life would be better without the internet.
