Mind Blowing Stats

This video is frightening because:
  1. it makes me feel old because I am one of those people who is resistant to new technology. I don't own an iPod and have never downloaded a song. I don't have internet access on my phone because I'm too cheap to pay for it. I hate to text (so impersonal) and I don't do instant messaging. I don't have a web cam and have never Skyped. I think I'm hot shit because I can download my photos from my camera to this computer
  2. because I have an 8-year old who is growing up in a country with a less than adequate education system and we are competing with countries (China) for world-domination and it looks like we are losing
  3. that TV show, Terminator, is staring to look more and more like a likely reality...

About this blog: What is Oh So Cynthia? It’s a Mom Blog about life in Dallas. You can call me a Mommy Blogger, but I prefer Social Media Mommy. Posts on this blog reflect the experiences of my life in Dallas and Park Cities, product reviews and my thoughts on parenting boy in this hi-tech, fast-paced world.

  1. ... then again, you DO have a computer connected to the Internet, you very likely have an email address, and you are a blogger. I bet you have a high speed connection, a facebook account, heck, you might even twitter. I also bet you do at least 10 google searches a week and have a computer at your desk at work.

    Don't worry too much about Terminators just yet. Computation power may be growing exponentially, but Artificial Intelligence has improved only as much as Microsoft has; they are both still mostly as stupid as they were at their inception.


    Like what I have seen of your blog. I came looking for "Mind Blowing Stats". I found more. Keep on sharing.
