Are You a Moron? The Internet Can Help…

March 2, 2010 , , , , , , , , ,

Just when I thought the Internet couldn’t possibly be more useful, it’s now lending help to our conversation skills. And not the sort of skills you can develop through an actual personality, but the superficial stuff of discussing all things Hollywood. This glitter-rich topic will help you land some real-life (wait for it)…acquaintances!

You may not even be aiming for acquaintance-development. Maybe you’re one of those people who likes to break the ice on an elevator ride. And who wouldn’t love a person like you? I mean here I was just hoping to get from one floor to the next, but now you’ve shared your thoughts on the “Tiger Woods entourage of whores”. With a starter like that I’ll open my mouth to reply, and maybe even smile at you too!

And there you have it, a human connection borne from headlines.

This offering by Yahoo! will also help people switch to zombie-mode in meaningful relationships. Like maybe before you would’ve tapped into your wit or expressed some real emotion, but now your brain can rest while the TMZish spewage does the work.

The thing that excites me most, is where this Yahoo! assisted-education could lead. I am currently envisioning a tutorial on how to tie my shoes (like when was the last time I wasn’t intimidated by laces?).Β  I could also use some help in learning how to quickly count my change, for the everyday but high-stress purchasing experience.

And the life-saving lesson I could really use the most?

-Dear Yahoo!: you know when that “Hot Surface” stove light turns on? I’m not really sure what to do there, you know, “touch or don’t touch” wise…

I wonder what Sandra Bullock has to do with that. Does she need help in that department?

Perhaps Sandra Bullock was the topic of the day…well anyway she is definitely the topic of THIS day…Yahoo! must be buzzing πŸ˜‰

I need help with writing comments on people’s blogs. Do you think you can help me with that. I hate being nice when the writing sucks. Thank God your writing is brilliant. This post. You could be me! LOL This is straight out of Wiggy’s Words of Wisdom! You are lucky you posted this tonight. πŸ˜‰

When all else fails in a conversation just say to the person you’re chatting with, “How about that local sports team?” That is sure to keep things moving. Although I am not sure that this tact would be Yahoo! approved or wise in a city that is home to the Leafs as it could lead to depression. *Shrug*

If I hadn’t been so dumbed-down by the Internet I would show some emotion at your Leafs stab…but as it is? Carry on πŸ˜‰

You should become a Flyers phan! I think you might have enough pent up rage to pull it off. Do you hate Santa Claus? LOL

That’s quite a shallow ad! I guess shallow people need love too–if you can call it “love”!

Everybody needs somebody to love, even if it is fake and based on paper-personalities πŸ˜‰

Hey, Romi,

I gotta agree that we take things to a ridiculous level. Guess some of this stuff happens though because there’s a market for it. Think they decide what to write on next based on the number of clicks for silly how-to articles? Hmmm…

I’m sure click-rate is a factor, but are people dumb enough to click? Like I got everything I needed to know from the home page and ran away as fast as I could πŸ˜‰

I love how a technology that creates lack of communication can help show a person how to have better conversation. What a joke.
