Since the 1900’s the human race has been trying to improve our lives by making technological advancements, from the phone, to radio, to the TV. Each work surpassing the next, humans turn out more and more technology to make life easier and more lazy for us. But if our skill to evaluate gets taken away, where would that put us?
