    Default I blame google

    My spelling in recent years has gone down hill. I can't spell the simplest of things without resulting to spell checks and I blame google.

    As a programmer I spend 95% of my time trying to find code to cut and paste, so I spend all day typing misspelled words and google magically understands and corrects me. But now I can't even type a simple sentence without at least two or three spelling mistakes.

    Never mind I can't find my way to my local pub without a sat nav.

    Is technology diminishing us as human being?

    If I can stop other contractors pinching the code that I'm pinching then I much prefer cut and paste.

    Google in itself is not a problem. It is the social context of poor education and widespread cretinism.

    Yep, it's got so bad that at times even google can't work out what I am trying to spell, I then resort to voice commands to try and get close to what I want
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    ― Marcus Aurelius

    Which hill? Or did you mean downhill?

    Don't blame google, blame the breeding.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”
