"The average person today consumes almost three times as much information as what the typical person consumed in 1960, according to research at the University of California, San Diego."

Listen to the whole story here .. it's pretty interesting. Nowadays it seems as if you don't even have to ask a real human a question-I feel as if they will look at me like I'm dumb and just say "google it" I sometimes double think my choice of asking somebody for help or for info these days. It kinda sucks in a way. Don't get me wrong, I still love technology but there are downfalls to it as well.
Speaking of technology, I watched this documentary on Netflix last night about the Baja 1,000. Holy SHIT! I can't believe more bystanders do not get run over. I don't know how the drivers see half the time with all that dust as well!
