I honestly believe that society as a whole is made more intelligent by the use of technology. If not speaking for just myself, I cannot imagine what it would be like to have questions on a subject and having nowhere to go to find the answer. If I ever have a question about a problem or something that is going on, I immediately hit the internet for an answer. Heck, over half the work given to me at Georgia Southern University is online. I can’t imagine how they got along without it.
I think technology makes us smarter because we have the capability to immediately find answers to any question we have, no matter how obscure they may be. Even if the question I have is stupid, the internet has the answer to it. Or on the flip side, if I want to brush up on a certain subject that I might need to know in the future, voila, Google has it waiting on you.
So, in conclusion, I think that the examples provided give specific evidence of why technology makes us smarter as a whole. Anything you’ve ever wanted to know about anything is here, and it’s just waiting for you to search and read about it.
I don’t do this very often, but I’ve decided it’s time to let everyone know about and invention that I very recently fell in love with: Sporks. Now I know Taco Bell gives these out for free, and I think it would bring an end to the entire fork/spoon debate. You can eat soup with a spork. Yes, you read that correctly. Next paragraph.
Taco Bell is sitting on a gold mine with this whole spork thing. They should be making these out of silver and selling them in Wal-Mart. I think it would put the corrupt spoon and fork people out of business. I love the versatility of these things, to be able to scoop things up like a spoon, but also be able to drive the fork part through food like a jackhammer through pavement.
I think I might take this upon myself later on in life and open up a spork making factory. In the rare case that you actually need a knife, turn the spork on its side and start cutting. You can pick your jaw up off of the floor now. So in conclusion, if Taco Bell isn’t going to capitalize on this idea, then I will. I’ll open up my own spork making factory and make millions of dollars off of the idea. You know what they say: Talent borrows, genius steals.

I was born on May 25th, 1992, in Roper Hospital in Charleston, South Carolina. I lived a fairly normal life, playing sports, hanging out with friends and generally enjoying life. When I was in 5th grade, the chemical plant my dad worked for, Albright and Wilson went out of business and laid everyone off. Halfway through my last year of elementary grade school, my dad left for a job in St. Mary’s, Georgia. My dad lived in St. Mary’s while my mother took care of me and my brother and worked a full time job at a brick company. Just before Thanksgiving of 2002, my brother, Mom, and I moved to St. Mary’s to be with my dad.
I moved to St. Mary’s where my cousins had been living since birth, so at least I knew 2 people before I got there. The town was a lot smaller than the town I had previously lived in, and I resented St. Mary’s for that. I basically moved from a growing metropolitan town to a small town in Georgia that was lucky to have their roads paved. Needless to say, I did not enjoy attending school there for a while.
I became a freshman at Camden County High School in 2006. I did enjoy this time more than my previous years spent at their Middle and Elementary schools. I played baseball for CCHS before a lower back and rotator cuff injuries forced me to quit. I met quite a bit of people in my time at CCHS that I remain friends with currently. After visiting Georgia Southern’s campus in February of 2010, I decided to attend college there, as I am currently.
