Which quote suggests that technological advances can negatively impact human interactions and social skills?


"I'm seventeen and I'm crazy. My uncle says the two always go together. When people ask your age, he said, always say 'seventeen and insane'. Isn't this a nice time of night to walk?"


"There are billions of us and that's too many. Nobody knows anyone. Strangers come and violate you. Strangers come and cut your heart out. Strangers come and take your blood. Good God, who were those men?"


"'I'm anti-social, they say. I don't mix. It's so strange. I'm very social indeed. It all depends on what you mean by social, doesn't it? Social to me means talking about things like this. Or talking about how strange the world is. Being with people is nice. But I don't think it's social to get a bunch of people together and then not let them talk, do you? An hour of TV class, an hour of basketball or baseball or running."


"Do you notice how people hurt each other nowadays?"


"Fireman in Seattle, purposely set a Mechanical Hound to his own chemical complex and let it loose."
