Yeah, technological reform is needed. Send all the technology to the landfill and life will be much more simple in the United States. We are so
connected to the rat race, we cannot just chill out. At least when I was 18, I would go to the bar and dance to a live band and mingle with lots of
people. Now a Dating app is needed, then some cyber spying is needed to properly stock someone in social media, then people have to choose who they
want to go out with and sort out the lies on their profile. Then in two weeks a date is set up only to find you do not like what the person looks
like and acts like in person.
All that can be done by asking a girl to dance one time in a bar. If she thinks there is something there, she says yes to a second dance, then you
can ask her if she wants breakfast or supper the next day. If she makes a fuss about the service of the restaurant, then maybe the two of you are
incompatable if you think it was fine...or vice versa. That is how we did it back in the seventies. I met my wife in a laundromat and asked her
there if she wanted to go next door for a drink....it was a strip bar in mid afternoon, no dancers though. I bought her a drink and we talked and I
called her the next day and we went for breakfast the morning after that.
Technology is complicating things these days, not making it easier. If I was not chatting here, I would be out at a restaurant having coffee with
friends I met in person. Or I would be getting some wood and build a campfire since the snow is now mostly gone around it and cook hotdogs and sip on
some coffee around the fire. How much simpler and relaxing is that.
Technology does not make our lives easier. Especially when they keep changing it and we have to learn to use the new techology every couple of years.
