People rarely acknowledge the wisdom of the written word as opposed to something that's said on TV or on bloody YouTube. To cut to the chase, you hear some asshole saying something 'smart' and you accept that sooner that you'd sit down and read a book. Going to Wikipedia and watching a fucking video is easier and quicker than reading a whole book. Simple as that. However, the fact that you've heard someone say something and accepted it as being a 'wise' statement, doesn't make you an expert on the subject in question - you haven't even scratched the surface.
This is what bothers me about the world today. There's an increasing amount of idiots who think they 'know it all' and so they start offering me advice. Ah, so you know this? Based on personal experience? No? Ah, so you read a lot and you've learned this from people who are actually smarter than you? No? Then how the fuck can you advise anyone on the matter, you fucker? What, you accessed a Wikipedia page at some point, and now you're capable of offering advice? You very small immature teet!
The Internet is a useful tool and it helps the world in so many ways that I can't even begin to describe. So, it is a good thing. The obvious downside is that it has increased the number of people who think and act superficially. If people live their lives without educating themselves or attempting to master a skill of any kind properly and methodically (and I'm sorry, but I'm afraid this does require reading books and using a more classical approach), then they'll never be able to acknowledge wisdom, let alone offer advice of any sort.
It's also affecting humor in general. Okay, you don't always have to read books to understand how something works. For example, you can watch movies or enjoy stand-up to discover comedy, but you need to go back a bit and find out what it was like through the ages as well. When it comes to humor, it has to come naturally. Yes, you must possess a natural inclination. "Witty" remarks and sarcasm don't cut it. And yet, these days people think they are perceptive by being cynical and "funny" all the time. I'd kill these people and I seem to see this in almost everyone I meet these days. Everyone's a smart-ass, everyone's funny... I've talked about this before, but it continues to piss me off. What I'm saying is, if you're hungry for humor, surround yourselves by people who are genuinely funny, not cynical bastards who think they are.
