I have to agree with you on that one, Technology is OK, but people are becoming way too dependent on it. When you have a group of teens standing around texting each other, standing right next to the person they are texting, something is wrong. Hello! Stupid, they are right in front of you! Can't you speak? My kids school had a meeting about giving the kids Ipads, my wife went, so did quite a few parents, and a good majority of them were against it. They shelved it for a few years.
Makes me wonder what would happen if the power grid failed and these devices no longer functioned. Oh Lawdy how will they survive having to SOCIALIZE with their faces to other faces and not with their thumbs!
Anyhow, FB does have its merits, I have a group account for the B-17 restoration, and it has helped bring in help and some well needed funds to continue the project. It's also nice to keep up on new products from SIG, Top Flite and a few others. Overall though I get PO by all the crap that is posted about how screwed up the government has become along with this monstrosity of healthcare, so I mainly just look at the SIG and other related posts and ignore the rest.
I thought it was pretty cool that they found this thread though and posted it.
