"Cousin Noson, right?"
"Yup. How is it growing up on Shlichus in Papua New Guinea?"
"It's very interesting, but before I tell you more can you please make me an omelette - I'm quite hungry."
"Omelette - you are not speaking about the yellow egg thing are you?"
"Yes, the "yellow egg thing" is what I am referring to."
"Funny, because here in America we do not make those things. All I do is look at my Google command center, the S9 key, and I say Omelette. It takes care of the rest from there - we don't "make" them that's why I asked."
"Shloimi, I knew that technology is moving at fast speeds in America but I am afraid that its also destroying the human element. Imagine soon we wont be able to have a normal conversation as you will look at your command center at loss to answer simple questions due to your heavy reliance on technology.
On another note, imagine if the only way we learn Torah is when looking at videos or high tech presentations, our ability to think and produce will be minimized. We ought to discipline ourselves to learn out of a regular text or a regular shiur which is given from a text and engage ourselves in real learning. Learning will be something real and substantial instead of a "command S9". That is why I support Yagdil Torah's campaign for real learning."
