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
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
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.
