I shout out my daily travails from the roof tops

Isn't that still some kind of SOCIAL experiment

Yup! Not to forget, along with Instagram filters, more specifically the ones that mimic the effects of plastic surgery onto one's face. Can you imagine, reports about young adults badgering their surgeon to look exactly like their favorite re-looked selfie ?

I signed upto Facebook a while back (since deleted) but what that taught me is that society is in decline due to the behaviour of (some) users, I just didn't get what it was for and the appeal it drew. Horrible.
Twitter just as bad.

This is one reason why I'm never having kids of my own I think often of how I grew up and how simple things were and now... things are so complicated, always connected and I wonder how people get time to unwind and disconnect from everything. I'd go out of my mind if I were 17/18 again.
