Many people are leaving social media for one reason or another these days. Maybe they don’t like the changes to their favorite platforms, or maybe they’ve realized it’s a detriment to their mental health. Some people are so tied into their online lives that they find it necessary to tell people they’re leaving.
Maybe if you’re a big name, like a famous artist, sure, but most people, however, don’t need to do such a thing. They can just go. Some people may wonder where you’ve gone, but they’ll just realize you’re off living your best life away from screens, which was God’s initial intention.
Depends on the Person, Really
Sure, kids might frown at the idea of opening a wrapped box and finding some socks, but socks are pretty darn important. Cold feet are never fun. While some people will reach adulthood and still hate to see a piece of practical clothing among their presents, we bet there are plenty of people out there that wouldn't mind them.
Believe it or not, socks are a great choice for someone who isn't expecting a gift. A surprise present is always welcome, and there are tons of sock designs out there for everybody. We guess we disagree with the Dude on this one.
I'm Trying to Stay Secure
For some reason, if you're trying to connect to a certain Wi-Fi network, some machines have a problem. Instead of the close, secure, fast one that you're sitting right next to, they will try to connect you to the insecure and weak one that seems to be coming from a building over or something like that.
We guess if your computer knows you want to be on a network but doesn't know which one, it will try to get onto the best option, but we have no idea why it would choose some of the networks it does. Maybe AI could someday explain?
Netflix Seasons or Network TV Seasons?
Because none of us just don't think either is all that possible. Let's say a Netflix season is ten episodes at forty-five minutes each. That means a season is at least seven hours, but it could be as many as ten. If you wanted to watch five seasons in a day, you'd need three screens!
It's even worse for network TV – let's estimate twenty-two episodes at twenty minutes each, and that's being generous. That's still more than seven hours, which means you'd be lucky if you got through three in a day. Sorry, Dude, we just don't think this is possible.
Start With It!
It's well-known that being able to take a complicated subject or a long story and distill it down to the basic elements – in order not to waste people's time – is a good skill to know and something you should always try to do. People are busy, and if you're not a very good storyteller or speaker, you will just end up bored. Thus, the Dude's sign rings true to us.
Distill the story down first, and then if they want more information or are more interested, you can add details. The rule of thumb is to start with a short story. Shorter is better when it comes to stories, usually.
