I do despair a bit when I see how my colleagues dress at work now that it's gotten hotter. Victorians would not have worn bermuda shorts.

This thread is like a fine wine. A thought forged in the mists of time it is yet savoured by all those that come across a bottle of it, as something special. It speaks to us, nay challenges us to comment upon it. After taking a hearty swig.

I am not unhappy with the modern world. I am unhappy about the the future. Human existence has a trajectory, I personally find that trajectory displeasing. There are better angles. We, are one of them. That in a nutshell is why I am here.

I am not unhappy with the modern world, nor am I happy with it. Autism grants me the gift of disconnection from it. It is seen 'through a glass, darkly', and where possible, completely ignored.

I think the government and the community increasingly reaches into a person's life. All the more formats it under some standards. And standards opredeleyayut some officials and Graciosa offended. Oh, if you're offended by something, then you're right, and you can define the rules of the game.

I feel weird when:

- I have to get a piece of paper from the clerk, that would cut down my trees on my land.
- refugee raped by a man, feels guilty, now that this refugee is going to jail. He is a poor refugee.
- when the guy who started the probe on Mars, should justify the pattern on his shirt before scopecam fools, who are unlikely to sdalat in your life something really useful.

Sorry for the errors, rudeness and stupidity. It's not me, this online translator. Really convenient?

Have you actually thought about just how fit one would have to be to do that?

The way I see it we all are now living inside a giant global "reality" TV show.

I have ASD. I live in the world, but am not of it.

Or, same planet, different world. I like my world better.

I was watching the recent remake of The Man From UNCLE."

What a great job they did in reproducing the ambiance, music, acting and cinematography of the whole movie. Even the colour and sharpness of the image was adjusted in some spots and the musical score was right out of a Henry Mancini album. It felt like I was watching an old 1960s movie until I saw Henry Cavill playing Napoleon Solo, and I said to myself, "wait a minute. I know that guy! HE's the guy who played the last superman. He hadn't been born yet! Hell, *I* had not been born by then either!

It left me reviving memories of me watching 1960s TV reruns in the 1970s and 80s, and realizing how much more positive the world looked back then in some ways. Back then, the future was all that mattered. Today we want to regress back to living in the cave...
