tense relationships

it is 2008, picture a middle aged man coming home to an empty house, collared shirt and pants still on, staring into the fridge, face illuminated. staring into the fridge the same way your father is staring into the computer screen day in day out. the same way mother stares off into the black window into the black night as she washed dishes. This is  everyday life ,un-enthused, often lonely, and most of all tired. Everyone is so tired. I here it in my fathers voice when I call the business line,  in the recording message, forced English words from a foreign tongue, all for the business, all for the money. none of it means anything. We all do things that we don't want to do. Isnt it funny how people train themselves to refrain from reacting, learn to just accept the discontent, "im not happy, but who is?" Maybe this is just what happens as you get older.

There is something very peculiar about not only the amount of information one is willing to display on the internet, but even more so, how much advantage another will take of it. Furthermore we have chosen to apply the boundless

perhaps web based communites, and the way people function within them are similar to the Because people not only put their own lives up on the internet but look at others, everyone has become a sort of voyeur. at the same time there are these constant lease for personal privacy against the government so its a real dichotomy.
