Is the following scenario familiar to you? You search for information online and you have disaster story after disaster story flung at you in the google search results. What is about the internet that helps this sort of thing flourish? Why do you have to dig through search result after search result until you find something reasonable and intelligent that provides you with a decent answer? It's like digging through a pile of shit looking for a diamond. Sometimes you can't find it and have to walk away in disgust. Now let me clarify, I'm not talking about getting yourself into a life-threatening situation and crawling to google with blood trailing instead of going to emergency. I'll give an example of what I mean. Say you come home from a concert. You stood closer to the speaker for longer than you really should have. That ringing in your ear, it's still there the next morning. You've damaged your hearing to some extent, that's pretty clear, right? When you sit down and try to get some information online, with that giant, unceasing mosquito in your ear for company, you're met with a bunch of pretty scary, depressing stuff. You have permanently damaged your hearing! The tinnitus will never go away! That mosquito has taken up permanent residence in your ear! You'd wonder how a single metal concert is held anywhere without hundreds of new people diagnosed with lifelong tinnitus at local GPs the following day. And then the tinnitus goes away. Lesson learnt. Both in regards to being kind to your ears and the disasterphiles who inhabit the internet. It doesn't end there. Got something in your eye that's making it itch? I'm Dr. Interweb and my diagnoses is a corneal ulcer! That's another medical example. I know. Something for a real doctor, not google. What I am talking about here applies to almost everything, though. From an enviromental issue, to a mechanical problem. Just about anything. You even see it on this forum related to riding. What is it about the internet that thrusts the worst case scenario to top of the list of possiblities? Is it just a reflection of society and people in general or is it something else that has to do with the nature of the internet?
