Information overload just a click away. No wonder the world is getting pissed off.
The hardest part of doing nothing is knowing when your done.

I have the Amazon Echo thing and I always think it should have a app that can read posts and then i can argue back and it would reply post for me. I should be able to assign voices to posters. You would be Michael Cera from superbad, the Canadian could be Terrence or Philip, Prof could be ricky bobby. Even better would be some clever software that could adopt a persona or idea, and argue about it, responding appropriately to your questions or counter-arguments. You could just sit there and argue with Jefferson or Obama about about the second amendment. Sell additional characters and topics for like .99, you would make a killing. This is all patent pending and copyrighted and such, just fyi.

Also, have you checked out the guardian this week? They have an "investigation" into how f**k young people are. They actually have an article encouraging people to upload pictures of how they live with their parents. It's shameful really but at least the issue is finally becoming widely known. Anyway, if you wanted to upload a pic here is the link: http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfre ... re-bedroom
Pun intended for the plebes on here who don't get a joke
