Before the TVs become walls

Or the walls become TVs, and we start calling the people in them our “family”.

I just finished reading Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, and although it took some getting used to, it sure does open the mind to a scary world – in which all books are burned and everyone lives catapulted from one moment to the next, permanently entertained. Thus, feeling inspired, I quote:

 Stuff your eyes with wonder, live as if you’d drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It’s more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories. Ask no guarantees, ask for no security, there never was such an animal. And if there were, it would be related to the great sloth which hangs upside down in a tree all day every day, sleeping its life away. To hell with that.
