The Best Analogy Ever
Today, a friend of mine needed help telling the difference between the real and virtual world. This friend, who won't be named, had started to believe that reality is fake and the internet life is real.
So I though about it, and I came up with an AMAZING analogy.
Here it is.
The internet world (as in forums, chatrooms, etc.) is like a cigarette.
Some smokers smoke because they want to escape life, and cigarettes make them feel a lot better. But in reality, the cigarette doesn't actually help; it just messes with their head, and hurts more than helps.
And eventually, it becomes an addiction; you can't escape it until it's too late.
Doesn't that sound familiar to some of you internet addicts?
