    Childhood

    There is something paradoxical. The Internet connects almost all of us We find unexpected relatives and the remotest places become our neighborhood. With a click of the mouse we talk with someone in another continent.  Never in history we've been so fast and so brazenly...

    It's easy to see especially if you're like me and work in retail. Or just look on the internet. And no one bothers to change. So I decided I'll just watch it fall. It amuses me.
