@markjameson2008,
They all can't get over the fact that, since joining facebook, they all suddenly have over 5000 friends.

@Lordyaswas,

@markjameson2008,
Only if they are all on the lookout for sock puppets. Maybe their friends are all texting them to warn them that a delusional Putin employee was nearby?

Maybe they're just playing a game while waiting for the light to turn, or the taxi or bus...Could be reading a book, any number of things.

Wonder what would happen if all this technology suddenly just disappeared? Go back to reading newspapers and books instead, or actually talking to fellow passerby's?

@markjameson2008,
Its how I pretend to be working hard while I am actually screwing around. I can answer work emails immediately thus appearing as if I am so dedicated to my work that I am chained to my desk/computer. But I am actually outside enjoying some sort of fun.

@revelette2,
I was sitting in a bus and across sat two oung men around 20. They were looking for something in their mobile phones. All of sudden they asked me a question about where Doha is.
I said that I did not know - some place out east- but it probably would be better to look it up in internet
They said "We thought we would get a faster answer from you"

@saab,
Not sure how to answer that, but at least you got some conversation. So, where is Doha? Smile

@revelette2,
Doha (Arabic: الدوحة‎‎, ad-Dawḥa or ad-Dōḥa, literally: "the big tree") is the capital city of the state of Qatar.
and
Qatar is a country some place out east.

@saab,
Thanks, I was joking but looked it up anyway. Took about two seconds. Took longer to post it.

Do you think they really wanted to know or were they just being rude?

@revelette2,
On the contrary - they were in no way rude - they were embarrased they could not find it.
see when our technical things do not work - we ask a person around us.

That's true, the rich dressed a lot nicer, everything looked more elegant before there was a lot of technology but I'm sure there were draw backs such as sewers in the streets...not to mention beggars. At least that's how it portrayed in novels.

@revelette2,
Under the shoes the floors were icecold and drafty, under their beautiful cloth the fleas had their fun and under their hats the lice were having a wonderful life.
At least in that sence there was equality for rich and poor.

@saab,
So all in all, technology and progress isn't bad, I only wish human nature would progress at that same rate as technology...
