I understand where Cirque is coming from. I USED TO consider the internet a window but as time has passed....now I feel like you do.
I came to the internet to get away from people. The average, ordinary, everyday idiot that I can't be arsed to deal with. And now they're here.
We went from 2 MILLION people online to 2 BILLION people online in less than 10 years. That means all those people I was trying to get away from, are
emailing me on a regular basis..... Where do I go now?
I don't know how long Cirque been online.... but I'd be interested if they have the same attitude in 15 years.
The only thing that has improved in my time here, is now when someone asks me to fix their computer for them, I can tell them to go "google"
themselves (as opposed to in the past when I said "if you can't fix it, you shouldn't have it", but then I fixed it anyway, smack
It used to be you had to have money, or at least half a brain to get online, now all you need is a credit check and a 2 year agreement from
walmart..... and of the billions here now..... still only that original 2 Million has half a brain and belongs here. Thats just my opinion though,
and I have no misconceptions about my misanthropy.
I'm sick of it. I'm sick of the cat videos, and the people calling me a troll when really they're the ones trolling. I'm sick of seeing these
cute little brain tricks being forwarded around like they're new and I know damn well I have that on a 3.5 floppy somewhere..... I don't save
anything anymore..... who does?
Why should you save anything? its at your finger tips. Just turn on your monitor and type in a keyword.
Anyone ever consider that we have been in this exact same place as a species before? Then the system crashed and all was lost. Its no wonder we're
missing a huge chunk of our development as a species. We're so quick to adapt to the instant gratification and convenience, that we completely fail
to CARVE IT IN STONE.
...... ok sorry - off on a rant there. I mean every word though. And I promise you, as soon as I figure out where to go, I'm out of here.
S&F for you OP - I'm feeling it.
