You can't fix "stupid...
You can't teach "common sense"....
that being said,
this old bugger has had a dislike for the computer age lately as it seems to be the source for more harm than good.
I pay attention to a lot of world affairs and see how Military use is paramount but on the flip side how the "enemy" also utilizes it for there ill gains, eg: ISIL and that "retard" that thinks he's running N.Korea...Saber Rattling more like it and lately trying to drum up support as he "threatens the U.S.A.( Laughing My Ass OFF!!)
I come away with a different point of view on the merits of the Inter-net recently.
For instance, I habitually check several radar sources for "live" weather systems that show what we're in for so to speak within a half hour and that came from being a Road supervisor when it came time to winter maintenance in my area. I check daily as it effects my job to date and whether or not to dress accordingly, drive the Sunbird or boat out on the lake or doing anything that may become a weather related issue. I have taught my family and friends to do the same and therefore my grandchildren are also becoming aware of being safe and going to the basement when severe and threatening weather approaches.
So you see, I'm "converted" and in a goodway, ( and yes there is a word that rhymes with that which is also a misuse for the internet ..providing Creeps a window of opportunity to do evil!)
In closing, because I'm sure this topic could go on for it's good and bad uses for an extended time,
I want to say how PROUD I have become for another very " decent deed" that this internet provides and that is, that most of us have been brought up to be considerate of others in their time "of need" and it shows in "our" internet, on-line Car enthusiast community. Let me qualify this....
the very act of sending "condolences via internet through this club as recent as this week to a very active supporter to our cause, Clyde and Family.
I'm happy that the internet was invented and again restored my faith in this device. Let all of us remain vigilant and supportive of the many terrific uses and uphold it's intended design and I believe that to be of "For the Betterment of Mankind"
