Interesting article about the internet.

Unfortunately, this only goes to show that civilization is only a thin veneer for the ugly side of humanity just lurking beneath the surface.

What really bothers me about articles like this is the thought that no matter who you are or what you do or look like, there will always be people ready to judge you as "unfit" by their own set of standards. Every time I go in for a job interview, I can't help but wonder, in the back of my mind, if the person interviewing me is already deciding to move on to someone else because I am too fat or old in his opinion.

What's scarier, now that I think about it, is that this same anonymity has helped create the increase of stalking and pedaphilia incidents all over the world. People who would never have thought about doing these sick behaviours in normal life, are doing so through the internet. Scary indeed!

Ya know what I think about some of those people <bleep> <bleep>.

I read a TV special years ago and people actually traced where the message came from and showed up at the door to ask them questions. Beleive me, 90% of those people had nothing to be talking about. I think they see day light maybe 3 or 4 times a year and have the mentality of a peanut. It is unfortunate that these people case pain, suffering and stress to other individuals for there own amuzement.
The art of a magician is to create wonder.
If we live with a sense of wonder, our lives
become filled with joy
