(Referring of course to my pet-peeve re some cell phone users - grin).
that is a perfect example - it wasnt long ago that we were all being warned about our brains being fried using mobile phones too much,
tho, i must admit to 'sometimes wishing the deadly rays would hurry up and boil the brains in the guy behind me on the bus!, so i could get some peace and quiet!
i suppose it depends how you look at the future, either all doom and gloom, or a new age of wonder cures and beneficial advances. i know it is easy to think of the past and all the 'innocence lost', but personally, i think you tend to more remember the good stuff, so in a way you're always looking back thru 'rose-tinted specs'
maybe it is just senility on my part
