The saddest thing is that most people will find this humorous instead of serious. We’re standing right beside one another, and yet we text others instead of actually speaking to each other. Have you ever sat down and thought about how uncomfortable we now are around one another that it’s so bad that we literally pretend to be texting someone when we’re not, just so it’s less awkward to stand beside people? What’s supposed to strengthen our bonds has taken away from it. It’s time to take our faces out of our phones and notice the world, give a kind gesture to someone, and go SEE your friends instead of just texting them.
I’m going to let that sink in.
Ah yes let me just up and leave school right in between my classes so I can go see the friend 40 miles away that i’m currently texting instead of making idle chit chat with the people around me that I don’t particularly care for.
Fuck your pretentious shit.
yes, that. same when ppl complain about everyone on the train or bus staring at their “evil” smart phones or tablets or kindles. Well, bloody fucking excuse people for using the chance to comunicate with others or read what they like or watch what they like or listen to what they like without asking for your permission and without properly servicing you need to be entertained by complete strangers, but no actually fuck you! what the hell! before that it was people reading their papers or their books or the letters they´d got. people who don´t know or particularly care for you are in no required to entertain you with idle chit-chat, sucker! UGH!
My issue has always been that people don’t get it - they see the technology as isolating, and in the case of some I’ve known, a ‘waste of time, why don’t you go outside and TALK to people, that’s not even real.”
I’ve met more interesting people through the wider medium of the internet than I ever would in ‘real life’ as defined by these people. My time spent on the internet is not wasted time, I am establishing connections and making relationship that as a introvert I would feel uncomfortable with in person.
I can check my mail, read books, watch social platforms, listen to music, read product reviews.
It does not isolate me. Rather the opposite.
It is not a waste of time. And it is real life.
I think I would respond better to the OP and people who hold these views if they said something actually meaningful and constructive, i.e. “Jesus, get of the computer and take a walk, for pity’s sake, you need some exercise!”
And I could go, "Oh, yeah I meant to try that Zombie Run app for jogging! Good idea!"
Problem fucking solved.
Don’t say it, man. Don’t fucking say it.
i really like looking at google image searches for “firemen rescuing cats” or something because you get super cute pictures like
AND THEN THERE’S THIS ONE
"THAT’S RIGHT TWAS I that set the house ablaze!!!”

Daniel Radcliffe Brushes Off ‘Fifty Shades’ Snub (x)
I appreciate the very real disgust on his face in the second gif.
i bet rob pattinson just rang him up and screamed don’t do it in the phone
I bet this phonecall happened at 2am with no greeting and Dan knew exactly who it was and why.
I bet Robert Pattinson has made it his mission in life to prevent people from taking shitty roles that will haunt them forever and everyone in Hollywood knows it and now he’s like the Acting Avenger
