Horrifying. After watching the second episode of Black Mirror I feel sick to my stomach. It is terrifying to think that this could actually be what we become. Basically living our lives through screens and exercise only serves as a form of money. One thing that struck me as interesting was the buying of gifts online for another person. Facebook tried to do this in past years. You could spend your own money to send someone a silly picture of GIF of an animal or object. Instead of giving someone these gifts to him or her in real time and space they offered you a chance to send fake objects to another person. It would sit on their page as a decorative charm and way for people to know someone was thinking about you, but you did not physically own it.
I believe we are also heading down a slippery slop to a lifestyle like the one depicted in the episode because of how dependent we are on our technology. It becomes who we are. Soon it may control every aspect of our life. From getting up to brushing your teeth and even telling you what games to play and what you are allowed to watch. The main character was not even able to close his eyes during a commercial or an irritating alarm would sound. The humans were operating in autopilot with little to no interaction with the people around them, unless it was to yell at the overweight janitorial staff. I will definitely continue to watch this series.
