The Future is looking bright

4 02 2005

It has just occurred to me that some people have more online “friends” then actual, good old fashioned “friends.” Some may say that’s just a wonder or a perk of today’s modern electronic age, I just say its silly. Why are people always more ideal in text and .jpg format rather then in person? How many people, were they to be in a room with all their online “friends,” would actually get along with every one of them and remain friends? Why must the internet act as an electronic safeguard against face to face conversation?
Yes, I’m aware of how I met my wife, and perhaps I may seem a bit hypocritical at this point, but that doesn’t mean I cant call for a ban of internet friendships for the future good of humanity.
