Huck And Molly Ziegler: Seventy-five to 100 years ago, if you had what was then regarded as a superior high school education, I daresay you'd blow the intellectual doors off of most superior high school education graduates of today.I think what I'm trying to say is, back in that time frame (and before) the educational "highs" were higher than ours are today, but the educational "lows" then were also lower, i.e., illiteracy was more common across the board. Of course, there were a lot more jobs that allowed for those lower standards.The Internet is an infinite encyclopedia.
spamdog: That_Dude: How is that different from what everyone has always done? People have always showed the world posturing bullshiat before the internet, you're just noticing it more now. There isn't a huge difference between Facebook and scrapbooking.Well, the bullshiat is easy to cut through if you know the person in real life. In other venues on the internet, you can't easily tell whether the person is just a fat wanker with severe deficits of self-esteem by just looking at them.
kkinnison: I cannot even have a proper discussion anymore. Too many people go into conversations KNOWING they are right, and refuse to listen to any evidence to the contrary. if you point it our, they take it as a personal attack, and get all offended
spamdog: I'm more worried that people are going to grow up believing the kind of posturing bullshiat that everyone posts online, resulting in very status-conscious and dishonest people.
