Computers to the eXtreme

COMPUTERS. The little box with the big "X" by it on page 126 of eXtended Language lists a bunch of issues that they have. 

I actually don't think that there's a crazy amount of problems with computers, seeing as that a huge percentage of the information we have today would be accessible without them. And our speedy communication is possible with them too.

If you've talked to your friend on Facebook recently, then you know what I'm talking about.

If you've tweeted about the "BESTEST THNG U & UR BFF DID THE OTHR DAY THT WUZ SEW FUNNAY," then you know that I"m talking about.

If you've sent an e-mail to your teacher with your crazy-long, large percentage of your grade's worth paper that you spent days and days working on *cough* RHETORICAL ANALYSIS *cough,* then you know what I'm talking about.

Don't get me wrong, I definitely know that computer have issues. I totally get that we don't talk face-to-face as much as we type over social networking sites. I know that there's creepers out there that make false usernames and go creep on people. I know that there's a bunch of illegal pornography out on computers.

I just think that computers benefit our society more than they harm it.
People wouldn't be able to go up on the Moon, make great movies, or potentially figure out the cure for cancer without them.

That's all, y'all! :)
