“Beware the barrenness of a busy life.” Socrates

The other day I met up with some friends who spent a considerable amount of time discussing how busy they were.  It became a competition.  Who was the busiest?  I even found myself contributing to this jumble of “busies.” In the end, I really didn’t know how much actual communication had taken place.  That is, until I realized that messages were scattered in between our “busy lists.”

Have you ever measured your curiosity fitness level?  You know – the part of you that has a strong desire to know or learn something.  Generally, humans are curious creatures.  But the true measure of curiosity fitness is how an individual defines “something.”

When Katie Holmes filed for divorce on June 28th and Adele announced her pregnancy on June 29th, the messages were passed on via Facebook and Twitter using internet (faster than light) speed.    With our instant communication capability, gossip spreads quickly.  Is this curiosity or merely entertainment?
