I've seen that before. Really does show how much times have changed. I would be lying if I said I wasnt worried about how the future is going to turn out.

You know, when I was in college (taking classes like Fortran, colbalt, and basic before Windows came out ) the teachers were all talking about how life would be so much better because computers and such were going to help us sooooo much...

What I've seen is that life is a lot more complicated, hours at work are longer - paperwork (in a paperless world, no less) is never ending, and we totally rely on computers now. One goes down, and we're kaput!

Funny thing, my dad used to tell me to go to plumber's school because when the computer revoluion took over, we'd need plumbers like crazy! Nowadays, plumbers around here get 60 bucks and hour just to come to your house and tell you that it's going to take 4 hours and cost 200.00 for parts...guess he was right!

Don't even get me started on cell phones....

This is a good thing to at least point out so that people can better understand the thinking process of people who never had that stuff. My Great G-ma passed away 2 years ago and we starting to think about this stuff. She was born in 1908. She almost made it to 100. Think about what her life was compared to even those that are 54 or older. Amazing isn't it.

Didn't Egyptian Pharohs used to wear earrings? If not, then oh well. That is pretty interesting though, but my dad is a little under that age, and some of those things aren't true. But it's a little confusing, because is he talking about the year he was born, or the year he turned 25... Because I'm getting confuzzord now.

He was saying that these things have been invented since he was born, not before.

Um, ok????? I guess that MAY have been an insult - but I don't know for sure!

I'll hold off on you for now, but I'm watching you! My post is the thunder. Now, watch out for the lightning!
