I love Americans--They make life easy
"Invention is the mother of necessity." --Thorstein Veblen
How did we ever get along without the internet? Or mobile phones? Or cars for that matter? They make life so much more manageable--or so it seems. Then you hear tell of things like that the average speed of travel in cities has not changed over the past hundred years. What do all of these inventions and time saving devices do for our quality of life? Sure, we're able to work from home, and we can wiki anything, but has this made life easier? I'm not convinced.
But just couse i'm not convinced, doesn't mean that I'd rather not have them.
