As you boarded the quiet bus this morning, your fake laughter began immediately. You weren't funny, he wasn't funny. But you laughed merrily nonetheless. You discussed your disdain of facebook and twitter, how they had destroyed the art of conversation. You had an Atlantic article to back you up. I was going to turn around and tell you that at least when people are tweeting and status updating you don't have to hear them on your morning commute to your dead end job, but alas twitter and related technology has destroyed my ability to orally communicate. I shall take to tumblr and I,A to share my tale of oppression.
