Love In The Western World
The words a lover whispers on a cool, summer, honeymoon night. Beautiful in all its glory, resplendent with the moon-struck fingers of a counter-trolled, controlled, Rick-Roll'd-less bride.
I harken back to a day when blogs were crummy hodgepodges of blinking, colored text; the glory days of GIFs and strange places. SEO was telling a friend your IP address - or having them over for dinner! Haha. I digress.
And with a free plant from the Chemistry Department, I blissfully (ignorantly) graduated into 18 months of unemployment. The year of 2009. Three interviews, 10 responses, 270 job applications, and over 500 hours of Team Fortress 2 later, I cut my hair and got a job. My internal organs used to call it The Great Excuse or The Minor Depression. $$$ began an inverse relationship with sugar and Carpal Tunnel.
Analoguous to sugar. Sugar damages your teeth, your heart (tied to heart disease), and is usually not digested properly. There is no benefit to eating sugar, besides saliva and self-gratification (which is good in small doses). If you stopped eating sugar, you would only be healthier for it. If you stopped watching screens completely, you would sleep better, think clearer, and be able to communicate better with others. Just saying.
'Mericans posit that children are developmentally different from adults, because ignorant. While I'll admit they are different from adults, it is pessimistic to think of them as unlike each other. Their inherent limitations are lack of knowledge and experience. Kids strive to take what you give them. They learn from the start based on your limits. If screen time is bad for children under two years old, I disagree that knowledge or experience would make adults better. Children are still developing, and screen time does affect children, but that doesn't mean it doesn't affect adults.
Children need us to interact with them to develop their brainz proper. Teh Internet is labeled "For children ages +2" by the Everyone Everywhere. Why wouldn't we need that, too? We the us have vegetated after work for decades now. [Insert national pastime joke] Done us good? No. Done us bad? While we can't correlate cause-effect, we can be wise about it. [Insert get off your butt]
"Millenials are good multi-taskers, but are inefficient."
Point of Order: Facebook has set out from the start to corrupt our s0ulz. We start learning from an early age to multi-task with our multimedia. Your posts, pictures, friends, and memories are harbored by a $B++ conglomorate whose interests are antithetical to your own, and it is designed from the ground up to shape the way your brain works towards its own stock prices. They're brazen about suckering you, and I'm a conspiracy theorist.
Point of Order: Mozilla's slogan is the antithesis of Google's.
