We now live in a throw away society!Ugh I hate the idea of having an Alexa. Terrible. One thing I try to do is when something breaks I try to figure it out. Can I fix it? In doing this I get a crash course in the topic. I have fixed many things and learned a lot that I otherwise would not have if I just bought a new one. So technology is good for this. But you have to want to do it the hard way. I have also failed some. Tried to fix my tv. Which after watching lots of videos and learning about it was basically not possible. But I still learned a lot. I have a drain clog problem now that has been snaked by a plumber twice. So now I'm getting a crash course in plumbing because I have to get under the house and figure it out. My point is you have to want it. People lack a curiosity cuz the answer is just handed to them. They lack awareness because safety is handed to them. They lack a drive to succeed because they can just order another one. It's sad really.
BINGO! I'm beyond sick and tired of it also!The core of this is the technology and the smartphone.
What was billed as a way to "unify" the world has actually homogenized the ability to think.
In times past, the need to think one's way through things (eg: slide rule v. calculator. v smartphone v. Alexa) is where the problem lies.
The laziness is not confined to the body alone but also the mind.
In 10-30 years, the majority of folks in old folks homes will have a very REAL and very SERIOUS cognitive decline and until we rid ourselves of this techno BS, you will see further decline with gradually younger and younger people. Unable to think, act and engage. All because "Alexa" does it for them!
You nailed it!NAVAITY !!!!! >>> the doofus gene is spreading and multiplying in the younger generations faster all the time ...
awareness is widely dead because of the mentality associated anymore with "differences" - you're a bigot, racist, "old foggy", - a major azzhole - if you see a need for alertness because a certain type of person is coming your way ...
And as Paul Harvey would say..."and that's the rest of the story."Situational awareness became far less prevalent with the invention of "smart" phones. Modern society (in major part) is glued to the things.

I do think this is a factor.Could it also be that the overstimulation of the modern mind has caused more "tuning out" and remaining in Beta brain? 30 years ago very little was on my mind outside of what local girls to chase and what little bills I had pay. Today people are getting bombarded with mis/information, fear, and opinions on a large scale to the point where people just want to tune out. I don't believe we were designed to have such a scope of concern.
Not trying to give you a hard time. But there is no such thing as a "Black Neutral wire". Neutral wires are white always. Black wires are "Hot" AC or "Negative" DC.Imagine being in a school today having to teach an electronic shop class. A black neutral wire is now racist and all wires have the right to choose if they are positive or negative.
I had some wires that couldn't decide whether to be AC or DC, so I terminated them!Imagine being in a school today having to teach an electronic shop class. A black neutral wire is now racist and all wires have the right to choose if they are positive or negative.
