Jewlarious sometimes tackles real subjects" Is the Internet making us Dumb?"

I actually wondered about whether my mind was getting fragmented and why I have trouble with a cogent argument, but I've been this way since i was a Freshman in College, way before the Internet:)

I understand what this video means; I've noticed this scatterbrained tendency in myself and am trying to at least stay focused on one website at a time these days. ;-)

God bless!

Good Point!

We need an alternative.
I, for one, even if I'm tied up in the Internet all week,
(which -- Thank G-d -- I'm not anymore)
HAVE found a Beautiful and Wonderful alternative that I use (at least ) once-a-week
it's called, "Shabbos"
just BTW, the above "at least" is for plans, and thoughts, and expectation, and anticipation and...
So, "Good Shabbos!"

This is why Shabbos may have become more valuable than ever now.

This was an interesting little tidbit....but the message of unplug and be creative had 95% white and male voices and images...does that mean that women aren't doing this? Or if they are, that is it ok that they will get stupid?hmmmmm

Does this need to be spoken by every color/nationality of mankind and both male and female in order to apply to all? I don't think so.

Some people should think a little before they write. It sounds like that shot straight out of your brain onto the screen.

you can make a women's video!

It's up to you to get unplugged long enough to create something!
