Recently a friend of mine had a child that passed away. As one can expect a flood of comments with people expressing their condolences went up on his facebook wall. While looking at them, I became very sad, and not because of the death. Also because of the inappropriate use of the exclamation point! "RIP!" "Let me know if you need anything!" "My condolences!" "Will be preyin for yah!" "One day you will see her again in heaven!" The exclamation point is over used as is. But in cases of someone's child dying? Come on. Fifteen years ago I had no idea society as a whole was stupid, however reading the comments on almost anything on the internet really has opened up my eyes. People don't know the difference between 2, two, too and to. Any story on the internet that remotely involves a black person will bring the racists out of the woodwork. I just can't believe how dumb everyone is. Focus 1: Has your opinion of the intelligence of society as a whole increased or decreased in the age of the internet? Focus 2: Stories of people being idiots on the internet. You should know that I consider myself a low life because since I discovered the exclamation point condolence, I troll obituaries and dead people’s relatives facebook pages for a good laugh.
