    The `Moth Man commeth !
    Guest
    For the last 3/52 or so I`ve been working in Lancaster City about 1 hrs drive from where I live.It`s `small` by most City standards and has a large campus style Uni on the Southern outskirts.The main thing I have noticed when in and around the City Centre is the huge amount of people who wander around plugged into various forms of MP3 players/phones.The effect this seems to have on most of them is that they are lost in their own private `world` to the exclusion of all else around them.I should point out that I include the excessive use and wearing of `Bluetooth` headsets in this.Are we in danger of creating a society in which we are LESS conected with those around us?Do we only feel we can communicate now via Email or text as it `protects us` from reality?Are we `scared` that someone we don`t know might actually talk to us?What do you think?MM.

    Why don't you conduct a survey on the streets? Posting your comments and questions here seems at odds with the point of your post

    i don't know what's wrong with me, i don't care to know either, but i can't be around people unless i'm with a friend, or have music on. i get so nervous in my college's student centre i have twitches...i find blanking out some of that noise really helps. i realise i'm not the greatest of contributors to this topic, but music at least gives me the confidence to go into public places

    Perhaps that`s it SM, we are all starting to feel increasing uneasyness and anxiety about interacting with others(?).Personal MP3s and the like CAN be helpful as a kind of Armor against real life.BUt... what happens if we all do it ?!?

    you don't know me at all :-Pone of the reasons i shy away from people is because they're druggies, one of my first threads on bm was about my distaste of recreational drugs
