You want the truth? Here is the truth!
The Zombie Apocalypse is already here. I can hear you saying 'what?'. Trust me, the zombies are here. Just not in the undead, flesh eating form. It's in the form of brainwashed people who have a electronic device, that isn't a laptop, glued to their face. Seriously. Anyone that has fallen for this corporate propaganda, has their face shoved in some electronic device watching Netflix, texting, vine video making, or doing the latest update on their life. None of it for practical reasons at all.
I get it. The devices are convenient, but that isn't an excuse to be a brainwashed zombie. Seriously, People cannot take at least one minute to look away and be socially active with other people. They spend every waking hour staring at a blue lit screen. What is so enticing that you have to constantly stare and cause eye damage to yourself? Some may not get hardly any bed rest at all either, just laying in bed staring at that screen of their choice. Anything involving Apple Phones, Ipods, Ipads, Kindles, the latest Smartphones; just to keep up is plain asinine. I'd like to read a actual book thank you very much. I'd like to sip a coffee and enjoy conversation with a actual person at a coffee shop of my choosing. Not having my face in a screen the whole time.
Is society so boring that we need something to shove in our faces? If so, it's the most pathetic thing ever. You don't need to talk to anyone to have fun either! Take a walk around town, walk through a forest. Hell, do anything that isn't shoving a electronic in your face. Being out and about is about getting away from home comforts, not shoving them into every facet of your life, unlike what that one Adult Swim ad says.
I know this rant will most likely go unheeded but whatever, I'm just stating my opinion on this matter. In anycase, if you do have your opinion, I'd like to hear it. Got a counter argument to what I said? I'd like to hear it. Well, as long as it isn't: 'You're being a jerk and electronics are the best thing ever! You don't get it.' I honestly don't want to 'get it'. I want to get away from it.
