Ok just to give some background info: im 13 and at high school. now recently (as in past few months) ive noticed lots of people just simply refuse to think.they will accept anything (and i mean anything) they are told.they are unobservent,mentally lazy and spend so much time watching TV its ridiculous.one of my friends said he spent 10 hours watchin TV and he couldnt even remember what he was watching!and even with exams coming up lots of people just will not revise and wont pay attention in lessons.about the only people in the school who have bothered to revise are the people taking their GCSEs.and i dont need to tell you that that aint right.even my mate Lewis,who would normally revise 4 hours a night has done none.
is this just modern society or something else?have any of you noticed a similair effect?could it be this "frequency fence" people are talking about?
note: another thing ive noticed is a change in most peoples attitude.this only happened like 2 weeks ago but everyone seems really edgy and less trusting.some have even been prone to angry outburts.even the people who are normally quiet.could just be exam tension but if they arent bothering to revise why would the exams bother them?
