Gen Yers still lack discernment, percipience and skepticism. To wit…

Mo noted this evening that many of her students were using Blackle by Hype Heap Media as their search engine. Why? Supposedly because it is the “energy saving search engine” and saving teh [sic] planet is like cool and stuff.

If these little mush-minds actually did some fact checking they would see Blackle is bunk and since Blackle is powered by Google Custom Search and runs Google AdSense ads, every click on an ad goes into Heap Media’s pockets. Pure marketing to the stoopid.

For some reason this anecdote reminded me of the Dead Milkmen’s “Instant Club Hit (You’ll Dance To Anything)” lyrics:

You’ll dance to anything by any bunch of stupid Europeans who come over
here with their big hairdoos bent on taking OUR money instead of giving
your cash, where it belongs, to a decent American artist like myself!

Hey Mike if this post is incoherent it’s because I’ve been suffering from the plague for the past ten days. So bite me.
