Inventions are what evolves society. Invention has been going on since the dawn of time. There are a lot of inventions I hate down to my bones. And that is the Rocket Fishing Rod. I mean have you even seen the commercial for it? When I saw it, I was such amazed how terrible inventors are these days. I think this Rocket Fishing Rod is got to be one of the dumbest inventions I have ever seen. It’s terrible!

Why? Why would someone ever invent some thing like that? It looks so terrible it’s one of those thing that you can never see yourself using. I can NEVER see myself holding that terrible colorful fishing rod that looks like a hybrid of a water gun and those Nerf guns. How do you look at someone and say they’re a professional fisher if they are holding oneof these device.

I’m confused. Why is it even invented? Is it any better than a regular fishing rod(other than the colors)? What makes it so special? Where is the authenticity when you fish with that thing? Where is the originality? I can only imagine someone coming home to their wife saying: “Honey, look, I caught a big fish–using this Rocket Fishing Rod! I knew it was a great invention!” Can you imagine your dad saying that, holding a colorful thing that is supposedly a fishing rod? Just the visual alone is tremendous.

It’s like playing basketball with a deformed ball with the ability to float. It’s like playing footbal with a new deformed football that is as light as a feather. It’s like crafting a wooden handmade weapon but using plastic. It’s like writing a book but letting a computer edit it for you. It’s just not the same! When someonething loses its highlight or its speciality, it loses a lot of it’s authenticity and originality. Fishing will never be the same if I that product is used. I hate it.


Cellphones!: The Universal Device April 5, 2009

Have you ever seen the first phones? They look like the crappiest things ever created. But I think it was genius! Phone then evolved into a very, very powerful device. Then it became a CellPhone. EVERYBODY has it. Well, at least 90% of students. Ever took a moment to just think of how amazing just the idea of communication? How you talk to a device and your voice gets delivered to another device. How you can communicate to just about anywhere in the world. Just how you can do anything in your cellphone today. Look at the iPhone as an example. What’s not in it? Is it me or is it wierd to tell someone that your cellphone is an iPhone?

I once asked myself: “Will they ever sell a cellphone made just for talking?”. First came the texting(txt). This made the whole idea of conversation so different because it was like writing a letter but 10,000,000x faster! Then came the camera. Who needs to bring a camera if all you need is your phone? Then came the music! Not ringtones, but music with lyrics. Now, who needs you Walkman or your boombox? Then came the internet! Yes, the internet. into people’s phones. You have the internet in the palm of your hands! It’s amazing(to most people)! Now, I wouldn’t be able to count them. They have EVERYTHING from internet, videos, planner, games, music, camera and applications (of anything and everything).

For me, it feels too overwhelming to have everything in my phone. It doesn’t feel like a phone anymore. They might as well call is a computer. I wouldn’t be surprised if years from now, you can cook your food in your cell phone.

Remember how the camera part of your phone is the side dish and the calling is the main dish? Or how the txting or the mp3 part of your phone is the side dish? Now, the calling part is the side dish. Calling is the bonus. Phones are seen by what else you can do other than call. Which is ironic because tha was what it was made for. Today, it’s hard to pick a phone because they’re all so advance. Why not just make one phone because the differences in brands are pointless because they all have the same purposes and bonuses? I think they should. It saves us from the trouble of picking.

For me, I love the cellphones because I can call people. But I don’t like the part how it’s almost illegal to call it a phone. More like the Universal Device in the palm of  my hand.

Microwave!: How it revolutionized American food April 5, 2009

The world of technology is ridiculous! It has affected the human lifestyle is every possible way. Personally, I am not a fan of technology. I am the last person you should talk to about technology. I know the least about technology. I don’t even know how to operate my phone. Microwave is one of the “Must Have” appliances in every American homes. It’s just the device needed to get the task done faster than anything else.

It can serve your foor in less than five minutes. When were you last served a meal in a restaurant in less than five minutes? Never! What amazes me is how for some people, it’s not fast enough. Are you FREAKING kidding me? Less than five minutes to get your food done and it’s not fast enough? That’s unbelievable.

I hate it when I’m in a room and people are waiting in line to use a microwave. They set it for a minute or until a point when their food is as ready as if out of the stove. What kills me  is the part when they stand there ar when they pace mumbling, “Hurry up…C’mon…”. It always seize to amaze me because it’s so annoying for someone to be an impatient punk like that. Think about this for a minute…Before the microwave, people depended on the art of cooking. Okay? They would cook the food the way it has always been cooked since the dawn of time. The same way people always have. Those people would kill for a microwave because microwave would have been mistaken for God due to its amazing speed. And people today are just complaing. I don’t get it. Why?

In addition, I’m not a fan of microwave just in general. I hate having that microwave taste on my food. And also because I’m a cook and I know how to cook. Unlike some people who can’t cook (you know who you are; it may even be you) who are just spoiled bratz who can’t take care of themselves. It’s so sad. Also, study shows that microwave food are not healthy just in general. So as I was saying, I just think so MANY people are so lazy. They are too dependent on technology. Again, it’s so sad. Very sad.
