I knew about the Wankel engine, but had never though about making it a solid. This is pretty cool!

_Social media has been described as more addictive than cigarettes
and alcohol_

It's not all doom and gloom though. Technology acts as a multiplier of existing conditions/processes, both good and bad.

Starbucks Appropriated Italy's Coffee Culture
Now, Starbucks coming to Italy is compared to the Apocalypse.
Harold Schultz "joined Starbucks as director of marketing in 1982 and, on a buying trip to Milan, experienced the cultural awakening that would give the company its destiny – in the form of the Piazza del Duomo’s many coffee bars, all of them serving high-grade espresso, all of them providing quasi-public meeting places for Milanese society. There, amid 'the light banter of political debate and the chatter of kids in school uniforms', the question hit Schultz: why couldn’t American cities have the same thing?" [1]

So Schultz culturally appropriated the sh*t out of the Italian approach to coffee and made himself a billionaire. And what has Schultz given back to Italy for the inspiration behind his business? The Apocalypse. Italians compare the coming of Starbucks to their country to the end of the world.

"Starbucks never dared step foot in the country—until now. Starbucks says it plans to open its first Italian retail store in Milan by 2017." [2]

Well, it's important to note that Europe culturally appropriated coffee from Turkish Muslim slaves, so It's all good. [3]
