A Mall in China Put In A Traffic Lane Just for People Staring at Their Phones

According to the New York Times, the new lane of traffic was intended to address the needs of the so-called “heads down tribe,” people who find the world around them so dull that they can’t bear to look up from their phones, even when crossing the street. Their distracted walking is part of a growing number of traffic-related deaths with the World Health Organization estimating that around 68,000 pedestrians are killed every year in China.

We are still amazed at the increasing number of times that as soon as one touches their device the rest follow suit.

It has gotten to the point that if you move real slow and make no sudden sharp noises ...

It once took them 3 hours to notice that We had left.

Love,

Put your Rose tinted glasses on and party on.... because reality is too painful for I and you and the masses in general I fear.

The rhythm of the news entraining your thoughts and emotions into actions and beliefs and thus we are controlled from our base instincts.

Weeping miserably as we slowly watch the world pass by. Or doing everything possible to distract ourselves from it as we are chained to the rhythm.

I thought I could. Fresh start, new everything, same ole me it seems. I just can't wear rose colored glasses. I can't divorice myself from caring. It is painful. Upon my last meeting with my best friend in California he said he's giving up, selling out, buying every gadget, he just wants to fit in because his new girlfriend does. He knows what I know, he turns away, just rose color glassing it. He makes me sick to think about. Selling your soul for tech and acceptance for people incapable of caring. It's insane.

I DO NOT CONCENT.
