Have you ever noticed how many people around you are talking on cell phones or are in chat rooms on their computers or blackberries or texting other people or getting texted or watching a movie in their car or playing a video game or otherwise just totally oblivious to where they are and who they are with?
Why is the urge to constantly talk to someone who is not with you so irresistible? Are people really that uncomfortable with what they are doing, or who they are with, that they have to float off to an electronic never-never land? Is it just an extension of the TV generations, where people no longer had to live where they are, they just turn on the boob-tube and float away? Is escapism really the ultimate reality?

Don't you find it just a little weird?
