Most people base their diets either on what they like to eat, or what they should be eating. Since I already discussed this topic once before, in an editorial, I won't go any further on the subject of meat and plant education, but since this is a futurist article, we’re instead going to be talking about the future of food. Referencing back to the first sentence, in the future of food, it won't matter what you should, can, or will eat, because you’ll be able to eat anything you want, without consequence. The future is not veganism, not by a long shot. However, eating meat won’t be something that goes on either. People will no longer eat meat, nor will they eat plants, in fact, you won't even be eating food at all.
Onision: the king of intolerance. I don’t see how this guy has a fan base, let alone more than 2 MILLION FU%KI*G FOLLOWERS ON YOUTUBE! If you share any different ideology, or even physical feature from him, he’ll beat the crap out of you and all you stand for, and today, he’s going to try to tackle making fun of the armed forces? Well, I doubt this is going to go well...
G’ Day mates! Cameron Levengood is back with a vengeance. After some time off to write up a few articles, I have returned to make some social posts, and of course, enjoy some time with my best friend, Onision. As for Onision, well, he ranks somewhere higher than George Carlin on my douche scale, but I’m not sure how much higher. Anyway, this is my reaction to his video: My bad USAF Experience. We’re going to sort through the crap together, and see how many valid points we can actually pull out.
Not many celebrities have ever been very humble, which brings me to e celebs, particularly those on YouTube. They seem pretty sure about themselves, especially when they make claims along the lines that we have crossed before, the fall of legacy media. Now, of course, old media is beginning to be phased out, but as we discussed before, it's not really dying as much as it is changing. One particular claim that I can’t seem to shake was made by you tuber Todric Hall (http://youtube.com/todrickhall) who said on the video “You Tubers React to YouTube Rewind 2015” after being asked about the future of YouTube: “TV is just going to be a thing of the past and everyone’s just going to watch YouTube”. Okay, Todric, are you kidding me? The best part is that this was said almost 6 months ago, and since then, YouTube has seen massive amounts of change, which has not always been good.
From what I can tell, George Carlin is a comedian that isn’t very funny. His idea of funny is blatant insults, which are not the basis of comedy. A good comedian can make you feel bad without insulting your beliefs, whilst a bad comedian has to. What exactly does that mean? For example, a good comedian can make fun of religious practices, without insulting those that practice them, or the actual religion itself. I give this example, because this George Carlin clip I found is so profoundly idiotic, I just have to say something about it. For those wondering, yes, I am very aware that he is in fact dead, but he is deserving of criticism nonetheless, so, let’s get right into it!
About a week ago, I made a response post to a popular YouTube video called (The Lie We Live), I wrote about how completely wrong it was, and I had so much to say, I felt that I needed to do it in two parts, last week and now. So, what are we waiting for? Let’s get right into it!
The industrial age was a bitch, wasn’t it? For nearly 3 thousand years the world stayed the same, then at the turn of the 18th century, things suddenly seemed to be going in fast motion. The population not only grew to thousands of times its original size, but the ability to seek an education grew, too. Better schools made the world slowly smarter, generation by generation, and with the advent of the information age, things went from double to triple time. More events started to happen at once than one could ever understand. Cultures began to shift rapidly out of proportion, old practices died off and new ones took their place. Electronic accessories transformed into daily necessities for the general populace, and every day, it seems, the world is slowly pushing the old ways off of the ledge, and that is not just because I am getting older. Even people just born yesterday will find their life styles will be gone tomorrow. It just so happens that the world we have lived in for countless generations is reached a crossroads, and the people are at a time of disagreement, and are not sure where they want to go in the next century.
There are tons of people who would argue with me here (and I’m not sure why), as I say that public, as well as, private education is one of the most important things that you and your child can be a part of. Lots of people argue with me here because many think that school has become a waste of time, with no valuable life skills to be learned within the “cold” walls of the institution. This is where most are wrong. In the classroom, on the field, and in other school related activities there are tons of life skills to be learned, if you know where to find them. If anyone ever tells you that school is just a waste of time, then refer them to this article, and dazzle them with your soon to be newfound knowledge on the subject.
In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past few days, chances are you’ve heard of the new mobile craze: Pokémon GO, the most recent game in the Nintendo Library that has been one of its largest ventures to date. Since the turn of the century, when the first games were released in America and other English nations, the journey Pokémon has taken has never once subsided, and has never run low on the hype it needed to push TV shows, movies, and games, hitting the top of lists in their own respective categories. When it was announced that you could catch Pokémon in the real world for free, naturally, the whole world lost its mind.
Note (skip this if you want): Quickly, before we begin, I’d like to let you all know that this is not the first Cam Reacts. As scheduled, the first one was supposed to come out last Tuesday, but after writing it, I realized that the words I spoke, and the way I responded to the questions brought up by the content didn’t represent me very well. Now that I am aware of this, I hope I can not only bring you a mature opinion on today’s video, but one that will make you think about, and question its message.

Tesla’s Future – (Wall Street Journal)
After its first autopilot crash, The Tesla Motor Company has been seeing some rough times. Several solar company failures have led to the CEO of Solar City, newly acquired by Tesla, doubts about the space. Tesla’s goal of a million vehicles a year by 2020, and their rough time with missed installation targets, has made the once clear path in the renewable energy market much more bleak and cloudy than it was prior. However, the US governments push for renewable energy is definitely encouraging the companies and only time will tell if they will get past these slightly darker times intact or not.
Strong, powerful, and secretive governments, such as the United States, Russia, and China, are all pretty well known for their power and influence over other nations, as well as, the influence over their people, corporations, and worldwide events. Large superpowers, especially the United States, have gotten quite a nasty reputation over the past few years for being influenced by external sources of money and power. Because of this, many anti-government groups, such as socialist and “patriot” organizations, have popped up all over and have begun questioning many governmental motives. For example, why does the government allow drugs and alcohol to flourish? Why do they support big business, and pay off the media to keep quiet about its affairs?
In case you didn’t notice the update (pardon the remodeling) I made on the home page, this is basically just a better description of that. Looking ahead to the future of the site, I need to make some changes. Don’t worry, they’re not too big, but they’re big enough for you to care.

Welcome to the first edition of Society Smash! Now, I know, I know, the title is probably throwing you off. What a cliché topic to talk about! The singularity? Everyone talks about that, well at least futurists do! Well, it may not seem like it now, but a proper understanding of this topic will be required for future posts in this series, so I would definitely pay attention: it will be coming up a lot! Also, unlike some other theorists, and futurists, with their doomsday scenarios, I’m going to show you it all when it comes to computers, and the singularity. The Past, the present, and the future. The pros, the cons, the ways your life will change, and the ways that the world will change. It’s far more complex than you think, and on a much larger scale that you could have ever probably imagined. So, what exactly are you in for? The topics that will be covered in this article are: a quick history of computers (like, really quick), how the singularity could happen, what needs to be in place for it to happen, when will it happen, what are some pros of it happening, what are some cons of it happening, how will it change me, and how will it change the world, and much more, so why are we wasting time? Let’s get going!
