Computers have ruined my brain



So, I'm in my happy place (you might know it as Target) and I'm trying to find these sheets that they used to carry; they're made out of cotton and bamboo, which you would think would be an odd combination of materials with which to make sheets, but they're actually incredibly soft and comfortable. Unfortunately, they're also very thin and get holes in them after a few years of use, so I'm in my happy place, where I had originally purchased the aforementioned sheets, and I'm trying to find them again to get some more.

I'm looking at the wall of sheets, pictured above, and I see a million different kinds of sheets, and my first thought? If I just start typing in the word "bamboo" one of these packages of sheets will have their label highlighted and I will find it easily.

I kind of feel sorry for this next generation, being raised with computers. They'll never know the joys of a disorganized Dewey Decimal index card filing cabinet. Or, remember when you would hear a song on the radio that you liked and then go into Music Plus and have to try to sing it to the person that works there and hope that your horrible rendition is recognizable enough, and the Music Plus cashier (that used to be me!) was knowledgeable enough to be able to figure out which song you were butchering? My new blackberry has that software where you just hold your phone up to the radio and it will tell you what it's called and who sings it. Kids these days have it so easy!

I forgot what my point was, something about me being dumb...

It just came with my phone, it's called VCast something something music something something.

No need to thank me, I'm happy to help. :)

I think you've just come up with a million $ idea with that whole search engine built into the product's bar code idea.

There are 3 Targets in Germantown TN, I know this because it's the main reason all the women I know in Germantown moved there. My wife acts like Target is a place that must be visited if we are within a mile from one.... I don't get it.

And BTW, that feature has been on just about every cel phone for the last 5 years or so. It just costs money to run.

Women love Target the way men like Rush. It can't be explained without the proper dance beat, and they both don't have it.

That made no sense, even to me.

I remember begging and pleading for a Speak N Spell. Now my 2.5 year old rocks his own ipod touch and downloads random crap that has awesome pictures.

Oddly, I totally get the Rush analogy.
