Blackberrys, iPads, laptops, PCs, and even cyber cafes, they all serve what has become an essential function in modern society.
They allow us to hurl virtual livestock at complete strangers with no legal consequences.
Twitter exists to allow mammals with opposable thumbs to share the most miniscule portions of their day with one another. Facebook exists to bridge the geographical gap between humans, but mostly it’s used to share the most trivial details of our lives.
And so women scorned can share their fury with the world. Seriously, I’d hate to be a teenage boy in this modern era of virtual relationships. I mean relationships that unfold over the web, not couplings that exist only on the web, that’s a whole other modern convention that baffles me.
I doubt anyone could have predicted just how dominant a role the internet would play in our lives when it first began to be utilized on a grand scale. Nonetheless, certain visionaries acted quickly, and now we have dozens of geeky billionaires whose creations shape our lives while they slurp champagne from the navels of high-priced hookers!
I’m assuming that’s what they do with their fortunes.
The fact remains, we’ve become wholly dependent on our virtual sustenance to sustain our physiological well-being. I’ve seen people physically melt down when they’re unable to access the web, nit just kids, and not just those whose livelihoods are dependent on the ‘net, but people from all walks of life.
We check our e-mail during dates. We take our laptops on vacation. We even order our groceries online, thus denying our bodies the fresh oxygen and sunlight.
The web is our master and we serve more than willingly.
