Humans are getting lazier by the minute. There is evidence everywhere. Hyking ? You probably use google maps instead of a real one. Going from place to place? You most likely use a car instead of walking. Chatting to a friend? You probably use a text instead of the phone. Even then you use a phone instead of going round to their house. See what I mean. We are getting lazier....
