There should be a “National Disconnect Day” where we all get out from in front of our computers, stop checking email, Twitter, Facebook etc. Just leave the phone at home and go do something; Go out get a meal and just talk instead of staring at your phones. I went out to a restaurant a couple of days ago and most of the people had their head down in a phone, and a flash from a camera was either a selfie or someone taking a picture of their food.
I realize this is odd coming from someone like me, but I never believed in taking selfies, adding every single person you barely know as a “Friend” on Facebook, Instagram’ing a picture of every single thing you eat or drink, checking-in on Facebook/Foursquare, and did I mention selfies? I enjoy all of these as much as Dr Perry Cox loves Hugh Jackman.
Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO): Net Neutrality
John Oliver is a genius at explaining things in a funny manner. Net neutrality is such a huge issue in the US, and it’s going to affect the world because the US is responsible for startups like YouTube, Netflix, Google, Facebook etc.
US Government said the convoy was carrying only militants whereas Human Rights Watch says it was mostly a wedding convoy. Either HRW is being duped or Obama’s drone policy committed a major screw up.
If true a lot of innocent civilians were killed; very sad. These guys were there at the wrong place at the wrong time and they did nothing to deserve such a misfortune. If I lost my family to a drone strike in such manner what could one do when you’re filled with so much pent up rage and anger? This is how new terrorists are born, right in the bosom of fundamentalist Islam.
