lms if you’re a 90’s kid and remember columbus coming to america
The saddest thing is that most people will find this humorous instead of serious. We’re standing right beside one another, and yet we text others instead of actually speaking to each other. Have you ever sat down and thought about how uncomfortable we now are around one another that it’s so bad that we literally pretend to be texting someone when we’re not, just so it’s less awkward to stand beside people? What’s supposed to strengthen our bonds has taken away from it. It’s time to take our faces out of our phones and notice the world, give a kind gesture to someone, and go SEE your friends instead of just texting them.
I’m going to let that sink in.
Ah yes let me just up and leave school right in between my classes so I can go see the friend 40 miles away that i’m currently texting instead of making idle chit chat with the people around me that I don’t particularly care for.
Fuck your pretentious shit.
"whines evil technology is making people antisocial its not real communication if its not face to face and im a pretentious self righteous shitbaby that asks random people on the street for the time and feels good about it"
Notice the world, really? When I look around me I’ll see a handful of people who I know nothing about and can’t possibly deduce much about them, I can only see as far as my eyes can see and I can only see what is happenning right now or in the recent past. Meanwhile, on my phone, I can communicate and read about MILLIONS of people from all over the world, I can know about their lives and their location. I can see back billions of years by accessing history and science books, I can learn about things thousands of light years away. When I look up I see what my limited senses can show me. When I look down at my phone, at my fingertips is a bank of knowledge billions of times greater. THAT’S when I notice the world.

how many other “inventions” of the modern world are overlooked because they came from POC?
I’m so tired of people assuming there were no amazing world advancements happening in mexico and latin america.
THIS WAS THE FUCKING TENTH CENTURY! A very very low point in European history. but white people are the pillar of civilization,right?
Oh hush, nobody is overlooking this. It was in an archaeology magazine for preteens when I was ten years old, as well as in the history texts at the tiny, white conservative middle school I went to. What a blooming cover-up.
People think just cause they didn’t learn about certain things in school that they’re never talked about. Knowing this site though chances are most of those things are taught they just weren’t paying attention.
