Now tell me..

Do you believe everything you read on the Internet? Let's face it. The Internet is full of information and it's a great resource if you're trying to find whatever you may be looking for. If I need correct information, I try Wikipedia, although I hear their information isn't always that correct either. But it's a very good start. There are so many tales and there's a lot of crap on the Internet as well. It's up to you to decide what you want to believe and what you believe to be misleading.

There used to be a time where we had to go to the library to find the information we needed for school projects. There were encyclopedia - who still owns an encyclopedia these days? do you? - and other books, but that was about all the information we could lay our hands on. Now youngsters don't even think of looking something up in a book. They prefer Google and Wikipedia. It is an endless resource after all and pretty much up to date. It doesn't mean you don't have to be critical. Think about what you read and try to find out what's correct and what's not. Try other resources. Talk to people. Ask for their opinion. Discuss the subject with friends and see what they can come up with. It may become an interesting discussion and it may open your point of view to something else. Just give it a go.
