This is an excerpt from an essay I had to write about the ethics of cookies for my computer science class:
“It doesn’t matter what I think about cookies. If the modern age has taught us anything, it is that the people with the power to wield the most modern technology are the ones in control. I don’t know how to make cookies. I don’t know how to disable cookies. I’m still not 100% sure I know what cookies are. I’m powerless against the cookies. So, like any logical, powerless person, I choose to take a stance of ambivalence on the cookie front.”
There is a great feeling you get when you don’t give a crap anymore and you know you’re not trying to impress anyone. Unfortunately for my TA, that feeling has a tendency to manifest itself in facetiousness.
