Or maybe it is good, depending on the people you ask.
Computers are rotting our brains.
Or making us less smart anyway.
Google can't take all the credit.
Bing, Ask, Yahoo, and any number of search engines can partake in the glory.
The glory of making people not as smart.
According to a survey or poll or something like that, people aren't remembering things because they can just run an internet search and find the answer.
So, they figure they don't need to remember the information.
The majority of people are more likely to remember where they found it than what the answer really is.
Because they can just look it up again.
Wouldn't it be easier to just remember what you read?
I saw a story on the news last week about this and they asked this guy about his thoughts and he answered that it was so much better doing it that way so the brain doesn't get cluttered up with all kinds of information.
I feel so much better knowing we have this guy walking around.
And he is not alone.
That is really quite scary.
I always knew stupidity was winning the race, but come on.
Not wanting to clutter up your brain with information is like saying " I really like being stupid".
I am proud to say that I am the total opposite.
I may not have a clue where I read or heard something.
But, I remember what it is.
I'm beating the odds.
