The Case of the Missing Brains

Sometimes I have no choice but to agree that technology makes people dumber.

In addition to thinking that the easiest way to add phone numbers is by making a Facebook event, people now no longer know how to use the Internet for its greatest potential: knowledge.

I do not know if we skipped a generation or two, but does nobody know how to use a search engine anymore?

If a link on a teacher’s page is broken, people start freaking out. It’s like when a leaf falls into the path of an ant in Bug’s Life. “Around the leaf? I-I-I don’t think we can do that. Mr. Soil.” They automatically revert to social networks to try to find the answer, and while asking for help is perfectly acceptable, everyone ought to take the initiative to solve problems on their own first.

If we are going to let Google replace the brains most of us never had, we could at least use it from time to time.

Survey: Romance & Religion

Recent events have led to me analyze myself, and I’ve realized I’ve never really gone without having a crush or getting over one. And then I had this crazy idea that maybe it was a replacement for religion, so hence this survey.

So to help me out, please answer the following the questions:

  1. What is your religious standpoint?
  2. Have you had a constant romantic interest since, say, middle school?
  3. How about since high school?

Yes, I know my hypothesis is probably incorrect, but I just want to see if there’s any correlation. And besides, it’s good practice in statistics.

Inception Required

Yay…time for college applications. Which means time to apply to UCs. Which means time to write personal statements.

Personal Statement Prompt One:

Describe the world you come from — for example, your family, community or school — and tell us how your world has shaped your dreams and aspirations.

Your typical fuzzy, vague, too-much-freedom prompt. If you followed the logic of the sentence, you would start analyzing your world and start digging up sad stories about how your bird sponteanously died in a pool of blood after you left it outside for air, how you had to suffer the hardships of being middle class, or how your mom keeps force-feeding you papaya. All of that you have to focus into a coherent goal, and good luck with that.

So really what the prompt is asking for Inception. You have to start with the seed first, and from there make up your world. That’s what you should do of course. Except write it backwards, because you always have to follow the prompt.
