Today, over 5,000 different languages are spoken on Earth. But can you, just for a second, imagine a world without a properly defined language? Would you consider developments during the digital revolution (computers, the Internet) more or less important than ancient discoveries — say, fire, for instance?

    Technology is a tool. Unfortunately, so are most of the people who use it these days. I would regard stupidity like Twitter and Facebook as a giant leap backward in human progress, and especially language (140 characters or less, usually not consisting of full words or sentences, much less coherent thoughts or meaningful content). 800 years ago, Michelangelo painted his masterpieces; today, "art" is Photoshopped nudies of Kim Kardashian and her fat arse. 400 years ago, "popular music" consisted of geniuses like Beethoven, Bach, and Brahms. Today we have Bieber, Beyoncé and Britney. WTF HAPPENED?!?

    BTW: "early man was frightened and overwhelmed by the sky" -- so are most Republicans, who apparently don't believe in evolution because for some reason it left them behind.

    Indeed, until recently, it was believed that the development of technology was restricted only to human beings, but recent scientific studies indicate that other primates and certain dolphin communities have developed simple tools and learned to pass their knowledge to other generations.

    I find it ignorant that more goes into promoting higher education than does the trades.
    I find it ignorant that these so called schools of hire learning do little if anything at all to teach and instill work ethic as a required course.
    I find it ignorant that on average 80% of the technology classes in college are teaching with deprecated information that does nothing for the student.
    I see greed as the primary reason for 90% of the colleges, as the rate of inflation to go to school has increased by 500% in the last 10 years. Less is being taught, educators are less educated and nothing is done to punish a school that has a high drop out rate or low rate of employment after graduation.
    I say to hell with this so called higher education. We need more vocation and more skilled trades personnel. We don't need more under educated, unskilled, in debt people draining on the tax payers that cant find work because there is either not enough jobs for them (because the schools lied to them) or the simply don't have the required skills the employers need!
