The Dumber Side of Technology

A fun, but sorely painful, look at social media / smart phone use and its fuel for the inner Narcissist in us all.

WHAT IF… you couldn’t mentally flatulate out 5 ‘empowerment porn’ image memes, conspiratorial links, self-distracting political BS, or love ‘n light platitudes on Facebook and/or Instagram DAILY?

WHAT IF… you weren’t able to show off every “cool” place you go?

WHAT IF… you were restricted to the amount of your social media time, causing you to focus on ‘depth of thought’ and profitable questions (such as wondering about how much you’re really worth) instead of snapping a pic of that Grilled Swordfish & Calamari dinner you just had?

WHAT IF… you were cajoled to go on a 100-day Selfie Detox? (could you do it? Would you still feel “alive” and “validated?”).

The questions above are rhetorical, but once the biting humor from the video below seeps-up into your conscious dopamine-hit brain, the answers may just scare da shit outta you.
