The internet is just poisoning us

The internet is just poisoning us

You know, I truly, truly think that the internet, particularly the social media, is just poisoning us as a culture. We are subsisting not on life experiences that feel the joy of life experience, but to get that little dopamine kick of just being what? Retweet. It's crazy. And not to mention the echo chamber. If you want to look at why everybody just seems so angry now and viciousness and truly reprehensible people have returned in full force. You got to look at this shit, you got to look at these echo chambers on the social media. And so that's why I felt that I just had to throw everybody's phones away. And I know we're in the middle of the jungle and we've been lost for days. But guys, I honestly think that pretty soon we'll just be sitting in the moment at one point and just learning to love life. I mean not everybody.

Not the two people that died. Not Jeff or Jim. Man, you know, I know he had an easily fixable thing. It was just a broken leg, and if we could have gotten him to a hospital, he would have been fine. But guys. Guys, guys, don't you understand that this is life, living out loud, but this is the way humans were meant to be, in the middle of the jungle, where we might not even be in Argentina anymore or Peru. Lost and near death most of us, not me, because I still have most of my food and the rest of your food. Oh, you guys didn't know that part. Well I thought it would be better if I kept the stuff because we would go crazy and try and eat it all and I am doing a pretty good job of preventing that from happening. What's with all the yelling? Is it because I got us lost? Is it because I threw away all the cell phones? Is it because I took all the food and ate all of it?

 internet look all the wires 

I mean some of it, most of it. All of it, all of it. I ate all of it. Okay, some of those things sound bad. They sound not even that good, but when we get there, my friends, and we experience the IOS, god, like it was meant to be experienced. I just know that we'll be all come closer friends, and we'll look back on this experience and cry because we knew that we were good people who did amazing things, and we wouldn't  We don't even have to share it on social media. That's how beautiful it is, and yes, I know I will be happy with the world as is. Now if you excuse me, I heard my phone ring and I need to check my email. I'm expecting something important.

It's okay, Melissa Benoist. Yes, you're currently in an ancient Nordic ruin being pursued by a combination of what you can only assume of vikings and zombies.
