How scary is it to think, everything we type online is recorded permanently. Every picture or video you upload, every search query you enter into Google. You have a digital footprint, a digital mould of you, your E-persona. Think about everything you do online, does it make you look disturbed, even criminal? Look at your search history. Are you as curious as I am? I’ve looked up so much shit, I probably look like a pervert, a terrorist, a hardcore drug addict… All because I have a curious nature. I Google the majority of the things I think about. If I watch a movie and wonder “what is that they are referring to?” I’ll Google it, and I tend to go off on tangents. I might start looking on eBay for a car, for instance, then I’ll look at bikes, boats, planes, houses, how to become a doctor, what processes they go through to make heroin, lesbians in the library with double ended dildos, Astro Boy, how to become an animator, behind the scenes footage of the making of Jaws, the history of pencils… Then the sun comes up and I realise I’ve just spent the night Googling fuck knows what, fuck knows why. Do I remember all the things I read about? NO! But for a fleeting moment I am taking an interest in the furthering of my own education. Like I gave a shit back in school about learning anything. I tried to smoke ALL the pots! And had as much sex as my girlfriend could take, and still summoned the motivation to beat off several times a day. Oh to be young again!
See what I mean about tangents?
