Technology changing brains by hulver (2.00 / 0) #1 Mon Apr 24, 2006 at 02:21:16 AM EST
Before pointing the finger at technology for reducing the attention span of kids at school, it would be better to look at the crap they eat first.

No breakfast and a lunch of 3 bags of crisps and a can of coke is not exactly brain building stuff.

Whatever happened to soggy chips and mushy peas? Those can't possibly be more expensive than crisps and coke.

What, 49 years of internet time?

The developers who knew this have long since been forcibly retired and sent to management assisted living facilities.

Server side blink by wiredog (4.00 / 1) #4 Mon Apr 24, 2006 at 03:04:12 AM EST
Hulver needs to implement that imediately so that we can draw more attention to diaries that are cross posted to k5.

I feel dirty just for by ObviousTroll (2.00 / 0) #5 Mon Apr 24, 2006 at 06:35:21 AM EST
clicking on that server-side blink page.

Now I have to take my powerbook to the kitchen and wash the hard drive.

Changing brains isn't necessarily bad...remember that study that showed that surgeons who played First Person Shooters made fewer mistakes during surgery?
