Our internet was down for a little while today. Oh, how I depend on the internet... I feel so cut off from the world when it’s not there! Now imagine if we had no internet or tv... I wouldn’t have a clue what was going on! Man, we really would be helpless without the modern technologies we’ve gotten so used to... And, I just read in the paper today about a village in Africa where their drinking water comes from a dirty, contaminated hole in the ground. There are people in the world dying from the water they have to drink, while we fret about our high-speed internet and $65 jeans. (I just went shopping today too, and no I didn’t buy the $65 jeans, I bought the $40 jeans, which is still too expensive.) But, meh.. how messed up our world is. And yet, even if we all could live comfortably until we were 100, our population would soon cripple the planet. And then, once I start thinking past that, I just get sad. :(
