Times change, just as does underwear: if one stayed the same for too long life begins to get a bit uncomfortable. And hot. And smelly. I have turned back to my Facebooking ways of late, it was near impossible to stay in touch with many of my friends and restricted my social life even father. 17 miles.
Everything I said in my post about the big book DOES still stand, however ^^ - my generation does abuse it and use it unnecessarily. Though it isn't pointless. Kind of.
That was pointless.
