Old doesn't give you the right to moan, it just gives you more to moan about, well that you can remember. Things weren't better when I was a kid though, they were just different. Memory has a way of making gold that which was in your past. It's a lie this romanticism, life's always been pretty shit, but hell it never stopped me from enjoying it. :)

LOL an office filled with older middle aged people to seniors male and female. A number of conversations going at once, then everyone stops talking and gets confused looks on their faces. What conversation goes where again??? :lol: :lol: This happened last week where I work, we all got a bit lost juggling more than one train of thought. :lol: :lol:
I will be bitchy, cranky, sweet, happy, kind, pain in the ass all at random times from now on. I am embracing my mentalpause until further notice. Viva lack of total control!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is not a test,,, this is my life right now. Have a good day and please buckle up for safety reasons,, All those in high chairs, go in the back of the room.

I'm leaning on the lamp post at the corner of the street
In case a certain little lady comes by
Oh me, oh my
In case a certain little lady comes by

Oh, she's wonderful, she's marvelous
She's fabulous, she's beautiful
And anyone can understand why
I'm leaning on the lamp post at the corner of the street
In case a certain little lady comes by

Some just get better with age ;)
The possibility of anything we can imagine existing is endless and infinite

I haven't got the time to spend the time reading something that is telling me nothing, as I will never be able to get that time back, and I may need it for something at some point in time. Wait! What?

:)

Going on the Luddite theme in the op, i would like the future to have mostly ‘invisible’ technology. So i would live in a Cotswold's stone cottage, where everything looks and mostly is authentic old shit. I walk towards the corner of the room and say “computer”, the front of the wooden shelf opens and an ultra thin [diamond] desk chair and computer/screen laptop kinda] unfolds and is immediately up n running. When i finish it folds back seamlessly into the shelf, and to all appearances there is only my authentic cottage with natural oak largely unfinished wooden shelves.

When i go outside there may be flying cars, but because of that the roads have long since been overtaken by nature and we are back to dirt tracks/paths. I will walk places and sometimes use the horse.

The truth is naked,
Once it is written it is lost.
Genius is the result of the entire product of man.
The cosmic insignificance of humanity, shows the cosmic insignificance of a universe without humanity.
