Another Way Computers Are Making Life Better for Everyone

28 Dec 2008 /

His mom took the boy’s laptop computer away because she didn’t like his attitude about something or other, and now he’s trying to involve me in a secret plan to get it back.


I ask him, “Why don’t you forget about the computer and do something else tonight? Read a book or something?”

He says, “I need the computer so my friends and I can talk to each other.”

“Use text messages. Or a phone. There’s an idea.”

“We need video.”

Video? What do you need video for?”

“Don’t worry about it.”

“Exactly. So you don’t really need the computer.”

“‘Don’t worry about it’ doesn’t mean I don’t need it. It means don’t worry about it.”

“What are you going to do? Have a biggest dick contest?”

“Is that what you used to do?”

“We didn’t have webcams when I was your age. We had to take ’em out and do a side-by-side comparison. Everything’s easier nowadays thanks to computers.”
