(My religion teacher would be infuriated if he read this (thank GOD, he doesn't), he hates people giving only 'google' as a source because it's like saying 'Oh, I went into the library and found the information there...' Yes he's right... I hate admitting teachers are right. Last Friday, when I sat in religion class (annoyed, because all my friends were off to the weekend already, except for me, of course) and was forced (!) to present my homework, I said, google, was my source and my teacher laughed. He'd better go to the dentist before he laughs again (at me). Then I said I found some PDF/ data-file... ah and then he was angry with me...
It's this weird phenomen occuring again: Older people have their own interpretation of the Internet. My religion teacher for example, is quite eager to give us homeworks including resaerch at the Internet, as he thinks it's the easiest and commonest media we are familiar with (he might me right with that again) and he also thinks that that would lead to a better hit rate concerning pupils wo did their research. It doesn't. Ha! here, he's wrong!
Mr. Religion Teacher represents a large group of older people assuming the Internet can provide it's users with information of highest quality. WRONG AGAIN! At least 90 % of the stuff you can find on the internet, is crap. And if you don't even think o f noting the source, it must have been not that striking.
Especially teachers, and my religion teacher is a good represenation again, think that wikipedia.org is as reliable as the national library. No offense, but not everything from wikipedia makes sense. My former german teacher realized this. he gave as an extract from a wikipedia article to find all mistakes/ thinks that startled us (it was an analyse and descripion of a book). Duh, that was fun.
But nevertheless, I wouldn't be able to do my homeworks without the help of wikipedia articles.
Isn't this an addiction already? Isn't that sickening?
Oh, and I'm atheist.)
Don't know why I'm telling this.
Must be on the edge of craziness by now.
Anybody out there?
