It sure is a different world and some of the stuff we have now is way better. Like GPS and maps. I used to absolutely HATE going around asking for directions. That goes double for Brazoo, most assholes here will ignore you, say they don't know when they do or ask for money to take you there. Absolutely ridiculous. But some other things, like having all these kids with their faces buried in screens the whole day, that can't be good for the future. Obesity, depression and other mental problems, all that is too common on kids today. Excess of information is also killing us with stress and anxiety.I agree with milko about kids playing out in the street, it’s a rare thing now, I remember being told to come home when the street lights came on, then I would leave it to the very last minute, always out, makes you wonder about kids social skills these days, but it’s a different world now, I’d say on the whole a better one.
Technology is a wonderful thing, but we're a species that evolved way too fast for our own good, in some senses.
