1. If a generation of people have been exposed to graphic porn on a regular basis, will it be harder for them to be sexually aroused during the real thing?
2. If a generation of people are accustomed to high quality information from multiple sources delivered in a customized format (RSS), will it be harder for a general, un-customizable product like a magazine or mass newspaper to intellectually stimulate?
3. If popular music keeps getting louder and louder volume-wise, will it be harder to discern quality and differentiate in music?
My answer to #1 is probably yes, #2 absolutely yes, #3 probably but not sure if this example is connected to #1 and #2.
