An ongoing story throughout his article was that of a near-blind writer that needed an alternative from ink and paper to save his vision. Friedrich Nietzsche was the name. The man bought a typewriter, and quickly mastered it so as to not need to use his vision to write anymore. Soon enough, some acquaintances noticed a change in the style of Nietzsche’s writing. He agreed with his friend, and said under the sway of the machine, he “changed arguments to aphorisms, from thoughts to puns, from rhetoric to telegram style.” The story suggests that the Internet isn’t the sole reason for changing the way of thinking, but possibly technology in general.
In the world of socially blind fireman Guy Montag, people’s state of mind was to employ firemen to burn books rather than to put out fires. The logic behind this act was never really told directly from the text, so the answer is left to the reader. Starting from when Montag is being told by Fire Chief Beatty the reason why firemen started burning books, Montag begins to open his mind and realize what he has missed. Guy is told that it started with the minorities, but Bradbury does not directly use the names of real minorities to prove his exact point of what follows (Bradbury 54). As time went on and books were still being read by the public, there seemed to be a dilemma; given the freedom of writing books, the writer could put his beliefs on paper and tell the world.

He states that even as a writer his mind struggles to keep focused on a book, something that is new to him. He blames this on the internet, which he describes as “The perfect recall of silicone memory” (2). He uses his friends as examples, stating that “..many are having similar experiences” (2). While impossible to tell if this fiction or not, one can reason that he’s most likely stating fact. Carr does bring up facts from a London study where results suggest that internet readers aren’t reading in traditional methods and that they do not absorb the text that they are reading.
Nicholas Carr says, in his book, The Shallows, that because of his constant use of computers and the Internet, he has become unable to concentrate on one thing for long periods of time. He can no longer read books without losing interest in them after a few short pages. He doesn’t understand things at great depth, he looks for the shallow understanding of many things. I agree with what Carr said about what using the internet and technology has done to our ability to concentrate and focus on one thing and to read a book and understand things at a deeper level. Since using the Internet, I have noticed that when I look through magazines, I LOOK through them not read them.
In the second expedition, not knowing that the Martians were not immune to chicken pox the explores accidently bring the disease and kill all the Martians. Bradbury did this to again like in Fahrenheit 451 convey that technology is capable of destroying a society and their past. Lastly Bradbury in one of the chronicles creates a character named Walter Gripp and he is one of the last persons on earth, so he tries to get in contact with women and we he goes to see her he sees that she is fat and ugly so he runs away and decides that he rather be alone. Just like in Fahrenheit 451 this shows that the advancement of technology can make people less social and
It follows the story of the most average man the American government could find; for an experiment, they freeze him, and he wakes up 500 years later. What’s interesting is that although in our time he has average intelligence, in the future the human race has degraded so much that the is the pinnacle of intellectual superiority. Idiocracy plays off the idea that pop culture is going to diminish the intelligence and civilized nature of humanity, and God Bless America plays off the idea that it already has. God Bless America covers a lot of today’s most despicable pop culture icons, and fulfills at least one fantasy of yours, regardless of what it is. This film kills off Simon Cowell, Bill O’Riley, Westboro Baptist Church, and snobby T.V.
People strive to become important, to achieve this they dress nice, educate themselves and practice good manners. If an individual falls short in grammar, or vocabulary his or her entire effort can be thrown out the window regardless of how esteemed the individual is. Richard Sng is a scholar and in effort to acknowledge the importance of grammar he said, We can blow the image we have worked so hard to create, with the Giorgio Armani suit or the Calvin Klein dress, the moment we open our mouth to speak. That is, when we mispronounce or otherwise misuse words. Our value and credibility drop tremendously.
Having the Right Stuff: A Definition In Tom Wolfe’s The Right Stuff the author opens his novel by beginning with test pilots performing their day-to-day dangerous job. The over all point that he makes in the first chapter is exactly how deadly the job really is. He makes this point by dramatically describing to the readers death after death of various pilots, detailing their specific accidents. Using the point of view of what the wives went through made his point even that more emotional. Wolfe than continues his story by describing the dangerous job of being an astronaut in the early stages of the space race.
Anger toward the aliens, ignoring the aliens, and rebelling against the aliens are the three human reactions the author portrays. Each one is significant but each is different from the other. The first reaction is anger toward the aliens. One superpower tried to destroy them by firing a nuclear missile at one of the Overlord's ships but the missile just dissapeared.This shows that the
