I just wanted to open a discussion about how with computers, phones, and many other technologies taking over our lives, When are we going to turn around and learn to talk to one another in person again! not over the internet, not texting, but actually looking someone face to face and using your mouth, Yes that hole in your face is for more then eating!

It bugs me that I'm seeing parents texting thier kids now and adapting to what cool.

The amount you actually get from a true meaningful conversation, especially emotionally is huge, their is no emotion in our technological society anymore for the majority of what I see around me.

I hear you, Some might say were not far off been like the Future generation of People In Wall-E, Also Watch a film Called surrogates.

And in my Personal Oppinion we have upset our own further evolution because of the technologies we have created to acheive everyday tasks.

I never thougt id see the day when a TEXT was more well recieved than a hand written letter, And i too am only 21

Aww now face it. If you meet people face to face, you :

A: Are likely to catch a disease
B: Are in danger of potential violence
C: Are unable to consider your words before you say them
D: Are open to personal criticism
E: Have to wear clothes
F: Cannot delete the conversation if you dislike it
G: May develop emotions that do not have a relevant emoticon
H: Have to be yourself and not that persona you made up
I: Cannot blame the keyboard/keypad if you are too drunk to talk coherently
J: Might have to spend money on something other than online porn.


This new age is best for all, sure it is!!

I wish I had a smartphone or laptop and knew about a website like in the spring of 1995 to post the information I had gotten from the de facto Director of the Central Intelligence Agency that he was going to crash four planes into the World Trade Center as a false flag operation called "Flat Horizon" to legitimize more colonial wars in southwest Asia in an operation called "Sand Storm" and crash a fifth plane into the new offices of the Defense Intelligence Agency as a warning to the top brass that the Pentagon had to to fall into line for him in an operation called "Commander And Chief". Every year I sent hundreds of letters through the U.S. Postal Service, UPS and FedEx, and, thousands of emails on rented computers at Kinko's to people at every publication that I could find an address for from "Cat Fancy" and "Cannabis Culture" to the "Guardian" and the "Financial Times", passed out little books at the entrances to office buildings and train stations, at private parties and public events including art receptions and jazz festivals, spoke many places including colleges where movies were made about me, was video recorded by the CBS, NBC, ABC and Fox news stations in Chicago and repeatedly contacted every business in the Twin Towers giving them exact details of what was going to happen; But, I didn't have the correct technology to reach enough ordinary people. You can verify that I betrayed John Rockwell who gave me this information in an attempt to recruit me as his Number Two by looking me up on the website compiled by my enemies called:
