While the internet can be a magical wealth of information, it can also be a pretty dangerous rabbit hole.

We live in a time where everything humans have ever learned is available with just one quick search. While it's an impressive feat, it's also pretty daunting.

Children now don't know a time before the internet, and they definitely don't remember a time when if you didn't remember the name of an actor in a movie you would have to delay a conversation by fifteen minutes until someone shouted it out. There's no excuse now for not knowing something, and especially no excuse for being too lazy to learn.

In the medical field, the internet can make things complicated. Patients have access to unlimited medical journals and of course, the devil that is Web MD. If you type in "I have a headache" the internet will tell you that you have terminal cancer within two minutes. Sure, knowledge saves lives, but it also can make the lives of people in the medical field a whole lot harder.
