    Sometimes i feel like we are over saturated when it comes to entertainment. A growing number of people go to work or school and then come home and watch tv, movies, play video games, read books, listen to music.

    they go out every once in a while maybe even go play a sport or something but most of the time they're not in the real world with they're heads.

    People obsess over movies and video games and ignore life to a degree.

    Nerdism is also becoming very popular.

    I'm an extremely nerdy guy myself but am very self aware of it and am trying to be in the real world more and be productive and i worry when i see people on their phones watching netflix while they have short 5 minute break.

    Do you think society is becoming to obsessed with entertainment and do you think it is damaging society?

    Yes. You can literally watch series and movies on your phone. Entertainment is always near you. But this is what people wanted- more convenience and accessibility. People don't want to go to a record store to buy music, they just want to stream it immediately. You can take a shit and get new albums at the same time. That's what the world wants and that's what it's getting.

    It's never too much but you can spend too much time doing it.

    100%

    I finish shows in days now, I've watched a good majority of everything it feels like and it's still not even 1/4 of what's out there
