Getting information off the Internet is like taking a drink from a fire hydrant.

Suppose your third grade science teacher taught you about the body structure of a mouse this morning. Back home, you reviewed your notes and realized that you were quite captivated by your teacher's explanation of a mouse. Now since you've heard that technology explains everything, curiosity rises, you want to search online, and hope to find what a mouse that your teacher talked about looks like in the real world, since you've never seen one.

You've heard about Google, a smart search engine. You don't really know how smart it is, but well, whatever. You say, Google will give me an image of a "mouse". It breathes, pumps blood, oh, just like us! Can't wait to see what it looks like! What do you think will show up if you googled "mouse" and searched for images? Not rats, hamsters, or whatever other related species, but mice. But you want only one, so mouse.

Guess what? Only one-tenth of the search results are the furry living animals. So what shows up for nine-tenth of the results?

The techy thing with two buttons and possibly a scroller for your index and middle finger to vibrate consistently up and down. Yeah, probably what you're holding now to scroll down and read further what I've got to write.

Maybe this is useless nonsense talk, but have you thought of this? Not only in the case of mice, but other everyday objects/things/animals/whatever.

So hi tech, you've proved to be more valuable than a living animal. I feel bad for the mouse. The mice. Just saying.

Technology is now part of what I eat, crunch, swallow, and digest. Yumm yumm.

Yummy Laptop!

I love my beautiful technology! Don't steal my boyfriend!
