The Internet Makes Morons of Us All

Acknowledging China's recent statement nearly half of pregnant teens met their impregnator online, George Simpson notes several other not so great things about the internet such as Narcicism Gigantus, Video or the "delusional condition leading the infected to believe that their stupid skateboard trick or baby upsetting her food dish or dog farts deserve a worldwide audience." And Infantile Anger Syndrome symptomized by "vitriolic anonymous postings to message boards and community forums using racist or scatological language that, if said out loud in a crowd, would result in enthusiastic resurrection of ancient art of stoning to death."

And our Favorite, Jargonamania (which, unfortunately, has been around well prior to the internet), defined as "an attempt to hide lack of knowledge by using words that everyone else does even if you aren't exactly sure what they mean, such as "long tail," "granular," "monetize," and, god forbid, "engagement." Check them all out here. You will be guilty of at least three.

I cannot fathom what you're getting at with all these statements here, but if 1/2 of all impregnators of teenage girls were met on-line, the other 1/2 were met at school, I'd suppose, ... with all that says about the strictest forms of preventive measures.
