Can you bite things more often in photos? So lush!!
Could you show us your cameltoe? ;o
You know what works perfectly for me? Not owning highly technological devices. I own a crappy old laptop and I get a "fix" by looking at my cat licking its balls. People should not complain about things they impose on themselves and they could escape from if they had a functioning brain.
I’m all for drugs and escaping reality though, just not constantly.
I have trouble understanding the general social agreement with technological alienation of the individual and the acceptance this phenomena has gained.
The whole point of drugs and booze is that they provide an escape from reality, but the use or abuse of these is frowned upon by most. On the other hand, anyone today can escape into their technological highs any time they want. Computers, smartphones, television, etc. - the moment is rare when an individual is incapable of getting a “fix” of this alienation. And although you can’t openly snort coke while riding the bus to make things more interesting, there’s no problem with slapping on your earphones and immersing yourself in whatever social network you’re in the mood for at that moment.
Now, I understand that people are, more often that not, very unpleasant to be around, especially in the bus, but how much is too much? When do we know we’ve gone beyond simply making a bus ride more tolerable, to being completely addicted to the kind of constant stimuli we can only get by constantly being connected to technology? I mean, a bus ride with nothing to do and an overly familiar landscape could be the perfect time to take a couple of minutes to engage in some introspective thought. Forget the people around you and their conversations, think about yourself, your choices, visualize the consequences of your future actions.
People wake up, look at their phones, turn their computers on, spend the day looking at screens and fall asleep watching a movie or scrolling through whatever website. Were is the time for introspection? If you don’t allow yourself time to THINK, your thinking is being done by someone else, and I can’t bear the thought of living under a dictatorship that people created for themselves out of sheer laziness.
