THE INTERNETS IS SCARIEZ

Wow.... never have I seen so much retard in one web page before...

Hear hear! I'm 36, and have internet access at home but never use it. I spend my working life using a computer and have to use the internet for work purposes, the last thing I want to do when I get home is sit in front of another computer! I've been asked by friends to join networking sites but I'm just not interested. If you want to speak to me, I have a telephone!

Now back in the day, this would have been:

Hear hear! I'm 36, and have a telephone at home but never use it. I spend my working life using a telephone and have to use the switchboard for work purposes, the last thing I want to do when I get home is talk for hours on another telephone! I've been asked by friends to give them my phone number but I'm just not interested. If you want to speak to me, I have a mail box!

My elderly mother threw out her computer when, after composing a long and important Email it glibly announced that it was going to shut down for important updates - updates to the MP3 player.

This one is complete crap, anyone with an IQ above 3 knows that...

"We tried computing and we're back to writing letters" says one of those being questioned by researcher, as e-mail is seen as too impersonal for close human contact.

Apparently a piece of paper which takes at least a day to get to somebody is more personal then actually seeing speaking to that person via instant communication, I mean, who the hell wants to speak to somebody over the internet with video, sound and live streaming when we can send them a piece of paper, fuck yeah paper!
