Those who do all those things probably never "had it."  Progress always has and always will depend on just a few.

I do those things on all my free time.....but of course I don't really have all that much free time(I think we can all agree that we are losing time just for ourselves), but hey that's life :P

Good point, although I don't, so it's easy for me to look down on those who do.  Trouble is it is not because of any excess of virtue in me, but an excess of boredom and dislike that keeps me pure.

It's like everything else, a matter of perception. Like text speak, I see is a more efficient way to write what you want. Using it on your cell phone to communicate instead of whole words is more intelligent then using the longest vocabulary words when you have a character limit. Any factor, that people said I can link some positive benefit to it, when it comes to intelligence.

Intelligence is one of those things that will always boggle my mind because you can find it almost any where but it isn't very common, and not set to one distinct set of attributes, yet you will always know it when you see it.

I don't think entertainments like computer games and TV have nearly the mind-numbing effect of poor nutrition and child labor, so we should over all be smarter.

The internet has helped us commuicate more efficiently. This new techonology has helped us do things at a quicker rate than before. That's true, but it has also made us lazier and more distant from people. I mean, am I the only person of my age that would enjoy talking face to face to someone or call them over the phone, then through text? Texting is annoying, it's impersonal as hell and it's just words on a screen, it can be misinterpreted so much. And plus, it's just a major pain for me. Bad things have happened to me because of texting. lol, uh, yeah.

What's the point of having unlimited talk minutes that you NEVER use? It's silly and I know a lot of people that have that.

Those are good points. Many people still prefer calls over texts. Facebook and Twitter can't replace outings and visits with good friends. One wonders if technology also lowers our emotional intelligence. It might impact how we communicate with people during conversations in real life. It might even impact our literary and verbal proficiency. For instance, they say that letter-writing is a lost art. Technology improves our lives in many ways, but it should never replace honest human interaction.

There is one reality with billions of versions.

Internet and whatever other technologies are temporary. What matters long term is the human gene pool. And with the less intelligent breeding more and the more intelligent breeding less, it is obvious that we are slowly receding.

I dont think "but hey that's life" is the solution.

I've been born again 31,8,2014 approximately 21:35 local time. A moment free of clutter in the mind, emancipating myself like an escapist, allowing myself to breathe life in a stronger, less physical level... though it does resonate to physical world. It's the oomph.

I think this is largely offset by the tendency of the stupid to kill themselves off early.
