    Hmmmm... A stick figure running around in a trench coat, and randomly opening it to the shock of other stick figures perhaps?

    ebay is more of a flea market than a mall, and wikipedia is the library

    google is more like the visitor center telling people where to go

    In my day, phones were connected to the wall via a cord. If you needed to make a call, you found a payphone or you went home.

    Get off my lawn.

    And yet, the internet equivalencies are all more efficient and specifically catered to your interests.

    So, Dr. Professor, what`s the internet equivalent to real face to face human interaction?

    In the Outernet bullies don`t just call you bad names. They punch you in the head and give you swirlies, melvins and steel real stuff.

    So, bassman56, why do you have to see someone`s face for your interactions to be worthwhile? Blind people must not have any real friends.

    Anyway, I wasn`t suggesting that people never leave their computer. I`m saying that ebay is more efficient than a shopping mall, facebook is more efficient than getting all of your friends together at a park, shopping on amazon is more efficient than going to a book store, youtube is more efficient than going to the movies...and so on. You get the idea. The key is to make sure you`re taking advantage of the internet`s uses without sacrificing an active lifestyle.

    Bassman: I really hope you don`t start complaining about the telephone and the post office next...

    The internet (and technology bla bla) isn`t good or bad, it`s just how you use it :p

    --------------
    the amazing thing is that we still managed to stay connected and up to date about our friends`s lives. and we were able to MEET in person on time at the right place without a mobile phone / sms.

    IAB is either in the crazy store (Not pictured here) or in the gutter, depending on which post you are looking at.
