This article may not be what we usually talk to about but my good friend who owns a limousine company told me about some mind blowing stuff and he thought my audience would appreciate it.
There are plenty of computer geeks out there who are practically married to their computers. They need to have it around in order for them to function like human adults. Some get so attached that they call their computers names, such as Dahlia, Jenny, and Commie. They do it with such outright fervor and natural tone that you would think they are talking to their girlfriend or their dog. When you look to find the person, you find they are not there. Instead, you see a giant and huge computer or laptop. It strikes you as funny, because you find it odd. They find it outright normal, or what grew to become normal.
“You cannot tell a crazy person they are crazy.”
There is a nerd that is known in our community that has no social life. This nerd has no social life in any sort of way. He is glued to his laptop, eyeballing millions of words over the course of the year, dedicating himself to find some new gadget that will allow his laptop to run all the more faster. We say it is outright nuts. He says it is only a matter of time before he shows us what he is truly capable of. If is downright embarrassing to watch somebody you care for that is so attached to their laptop. It gets scary at times, and I sometimes get worried. This is the person I want to see socialize and mingle in the world. Instead, I see him glued to the screen.
On the screen, I see him pressing the keyboards of his laptop, dialing away at words as they glaze on the screen. I see different programs pop up on the monitor every 20 seconds while he is staring through his glasses, looking at every little word as though each word had a special message for him personally. It was both admiring and daunting at the same time. He was so dedicated to his goal and so disassociated with the world around him. This is not to say that he is going to fail or that he is not going to be anything special. I wish the best for him. I just know that his body is wasting away, his face looks older, and that it looks creepy. I just feel as though he is missing out in life, giving his years to a computer screen that will never be able to live without him.
“He is giving years of his life to a laptop that will never be able to live without him.”
Call it love. I call it unusuality.
Maybe when he becomes big in the world, he will be able to tell me “I told you so.” That is what they tit, so I will not be left to dwell. I still believe that it is much wiser to look at both the pessimistic side and optimistic side and have a good middle view, like what Robert Kiyosaki says.
Robert Kiyosaki is a great influential person to watch, take a couple minutes to enjoy this video.
