You know what I'm tired of hearing about? Books. Everyone says, "go read a book" or "the book was better" or "you know what society's problem is, we don't read enough books."
Books are dead. They are an antiquated form of communication. Outdated in method, synchronous, and not very efficient. I can get 95% of what is in a book in a two hour documentary, 30 minutes Googling the info I need, or in about 2 minutes of someone explaining what I need to know. Film, the internet, and phones have books by the balls.
Sure, there are you "fiction" readers. I hate fiction. What does fiction have to do with real life? Nothing. It's a waste of my time. Sorry for those of you that like well penned prose. My suggestion? Find a few intelligent blogs to read. Your time would be much more well spent.
