think that humans were better off as cavemen. Where grunts and groans
got the message across. NO room for personal perception. NO room for
personal interpretation. NO room for "what does the other
person mean by that?".
It was SO FUCKING SIMPLE!
CAN IT PLEASE BE AGAIN????!!!
At times I wonder if technology will be the downfall of humans. Everyone is SO engrossed with their smart phones and Facebook and Twitter and Pinterest (or whatever).
As if humans never communicated with one another without pictures or "likes" or "pins" or "status updates".
Communication these days is a tricky thing. We text and email and Facebook but something gets lost along the way.
There is no body language, no voice inflection, no facial expression.
What there IS is a whole lot of room for "interpretation" and misunderstanding.
I have had even my closest friends ask, "what did you mean by that?" or "were you referring to me (in that post)?".
Being human is complicated enough already! We don't need to create more ways to screw up communicating but it seems that is what technology is doing.
I think that we are devolving instead of evolving when it comes to human relationships and interaction and it makes me scared for the future.
