The Power in My Hand

I sit here with this device, it’s capabilities are shocking. Using this small little gadget, I can communicate with anyone anywhere in the world, I literally have a wealth of information at my fingertips.

It scares me to think about it, the raw power that resides in the palm of my hand. Knowing that I can cause havoc or something similar, it’s unspeakable.

I think of the damage that can potentially be caused by any individual with little effort, no real knowledge even. It’s a troublesome thought.

I know there are those that use their technology for good, helping people and changing lives, and I salute them.

I guess I should do the same, and so let me say this: be weary!

We’ve all heard of the bad elements at play in the world, but are we truly aware?

The online environment is a scary place, so therefore I say be weary, forewarned is forearmed.

All That Matter

Scarifying (also scarification modification) involves scratching, etching, burning / branding, or superficially cutting designs, pictures, or words into the skin as a permanent body modification. In the process of body scarification, scars are formed by cutting or branding the skin by varying methods (sometimes using further sequential aggravating wound healing methods at timed intervals, like irritation), to purposely influence wound healing to scar more and not scar less. Scarification is sometimes called cicatrization (from the French equivalent).
