One of the silliest things I’d ever heard (read, actually, because it was on the papers) goes something like this
Blogging is my life…if I lose my blog, I have nothing.
That, coming from a certain local Gen-Yer “blogebrity” a couple of years ago after someone hacked into her blog (the one everybody is reading about, apparently. Funny how “everybody” excluded me at the very least), causing her to have lost a lot of money in sponsorships and advertising and whatever nonsense people decided to put on her blog.
My point, probably 3-4 years too late, is this: BLOODY HELL, GET A BLEEDING LIFE ALREADY! And if you say you have nothing if you lose your blog, then you haven’t really achieved anything, have you?
Call it ignorance of youth, misinformed innocence, or just plain arrogant stupidity— but I find myself getting irritated when I come across youths who are seemingly on a downward spiral towards a life of crime, or highly anti-social behavior.
Occupational hazard or not, I worry because, by golly, if these
dumb fucks emo youths are supposed to be our future leaders, then I may as well move to the most remote place I can find on earth and become a recluse, for my continued sanity and sanctuary.
Granted, each of us have been through that difficult and impossible to fathom stage called adolescence, but I don’t remember mine so lacking in adhering to the rules of common sense as what I see amongst the “ignorant” youth of today.
Which is why I tend to agree with Twain:
The trouble ain’t that there is too many fools, but that the lightning ain’t distributed right. ~Mark Twain
