Have you ever noticed that the moment you think what you’re eating is healthy and then they come out with a study saying that it’s really not? It seems that every five minutes a new study comes out that says coffee is healthy and then another that says it’s not. With the amount of information we have access to it’s become a massive headache to sift through what information is legitimate and what is false.
This is so much more prevalent in this day and age because of the internet. False information abounds, but I wonder, do we have access to too much information? There are very few times that I hang out with my friends and someone pulls out a smartphone or laptop to look up the answer to something we’ve been arguing about.
What happened to the times when it was perfectly acceptable to not know the answer? There was once a time that when I didn’t know something, I wouldn’t be itching to find out. I was content with not knowing. Though I love the the internet and all of its fascinating gems, sometimes I wish I was transported back to when we didn’t have constant access to information at our fingertips.
