Why Computers Hate MSNTV

Someone said, "evolution is stupid." Of course, Raoul, 4ize and I tend to jump like ducks on June bugs at such statements.

Raoul said that, if that poster could answer some basic Chemistry questions, the conversation on how reproduction/replication developed could continue. The questions involved chemical bonds & their strength and composition. They also involved the composition and configuration of DNA.

So, I hit the search engines and posted websites that had the answers.

Then, I wrote this:

I want to publicly state, for the record that I never studied chemistry.

The heirarchy of public "education" requires one to complete at least Calculus before one can take a Chemistry class.

I am slightly dyslexic and EXTREMELY math-phobic. I barely passed basic Algebra, and that wasn't until College.

The only Chemistry I ever picked up came from PBS science shows and the like. "Accidental" Chemistry.

So, until Raoul posted these questions, I never knew what Chemical Bonds, et al, even WERE!

But, with my webtv and a search engine, I LEARNED the basics in less than 20 minutes!

This is the value of this little "toy" we have on top of our television sets.

Sure, we can use this appliance to gossip, spread rumors, harrass people, masturbate and play games. One doesn't need an internet-ready appliance to do those; small people have done it for eons. The appliance just makes it possible to do this sort of petty damage on a global scale.

But this appliance can take one to the Smithsonian Institute, NASA, The Library of Alexandria, the Louvre, Julia Childs' kitchen, the foot paths of Chiapas.

It can take us back in time to the Tower of Babel, the Twin Towers, the Roman Coleseum, Stonehenge, the building of The Great Wall Of China, the Suez Canal, the Mayan pyramids, the Big Bang.

It can take us into great minds like Einstein, Schweitzer, Ghandi, Dr. King, Van Gogh, Beethoven, da Vinci.

This appliance is a transporter. We start out on our sofas in our nondescript homes and travel the depth and breadth of the Universe.

And it's not a one-way conversation, like regular TV, radio, publishing. We can publish blogs, ezines, web pages, Table- and Audioscope art.

We can be part of the global conversation.

Or, we can use this appliance to gossip, spread rumors, harrass people, masturbate and play games.
