Holy Crap on a Cracker

Wow. I’m still in seclusion (mostly), but check this out. The whole thing. It’s mind-blowing.

I agree. Holy crap on a cracker.

And people wonder why us old people can't keep up.

Oh, man. Now all I need is a valium, and I can get out of bed. That scared the poop out of me. Even the music was scary.

Interesting bit of tidbits (all the babies born is concerning!)
Spy - thanks SO much for visiting my blog and providing links for blog writers- really sweet of you!
I should be able to find that!

(Hey, I'm one of those iPhone users - Oh do I love it!! I adore our technology although it does make you wonder what we'd be doing with our time if we weren't blogging, on facebook, on linkedIn . . . .

No wonder it's getting hard to keep up. Watching that makes me want to turn off my computer and go for a walk. lol

I'm in the local coffeehouse, so at least I had the sound turned down on my computer and didn't have to contend with scary music.

Pretty sobering stuff...but it's still amazing to me how many people I know don't yet use many of the tools talked about in the video! They get beyond a little email or surfing on the computer, and they're done.

Hard to keep up, indeed!

Dominique: I'm one of those people who amaze you. Don't even own a cell phone.

Good gracious! "Holy crap on a cracker" is right! LOL! I'm stunned. Not sure whether to be amazed or horrified. I think I'm both.

I know this is selfish, but what freaked me out most were those stats at the beginning about the U.S. in comparison with other countries. We act as if our nation is invincible, but those numbers show just how fragile our position in the world really is.

Very interesting, Spy. It's like a train going ballastic, and there's no stations in sight.

What really worries me is how obsessed the world is with constant motion, and fast results. As much as I love my laptop, and email I'm beginning to think it might not such a good thing in the end.
