Every day I find myself scrolling through my various newsfeeds. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and even Tumblr. Yes, I admit that I’m a bit of a social media junkie. I completely understand why people avoid it or take social media breaks. Because it can become time-consuming and even an addiction. That being said, there’s no chance I’m giving up my habit anytime soon. As someone who lives in a rural area and works from home, it provides a level of social interaction I wouldn’t otherwise have and allows me to stay connected with family friends. I even reconnected with my boyfriend through Facebook. We have known one another since kindergarten, but we wouldn’t have started speaking again without social media.
But, social media means that I consume things very quickly and just glance as I scroll past. This has led me to lose my attention for detail and miss things in real life.
1. The Bear In The Toblerone Logo
Because I’m often too busy trying to consume too much information on my phone, I miss tiny details that I otherwise would have seen. Often, these are things we have seen hundreds or thousands of times but never noticed before. Once you see them, you’ll never be able to unsee them. For instance, look closely at the Toblerone logo… there’s a bear in the mountain! Next time I pick one of these up in an airport, it will be the first thing that I notice.
2. The 90’s Are Longer Ago Than We Think
Maybe it’s just because I’m getting older and don’t wish to acknowledge the inevitable passing of time, or perhaps it’s because I just don’t pay enough attention, but the 1990’s are not ‘ten years ago’. In fact, they’re more like twenty years ago. And all those shows and movies we remember so fondly? They’re a lot older than we think.
3. Jerry Seinfeld Had Shoe Marks All Over His Door – Left By Kramer
Perhaps it’s because it was just part of the set, but I never noticed the scuff marks on Jerry’s door. They were put there by Kramer’s crazy entrances.
4. Katy Perry is Paula Deen?
Okay, Katy Perry and Paula Deen are not one in the same, but is you photoshop Katy Perry’s face onto Paula Deen’s, she still looks exactly the same!
