Not a chance. I am looking forward to the PC/cell phone implant. I want to be a borg.



Without technology a lot of people would die due to food shortages, loss of sanitation and medical "stuff".

I don't think it was any easier to make a buck, but I would do it in a heartbeat. It just seemed to be a better time when people were more honest a hand shake was you bond, more open spaces bla bla bla you get the idea.

I'm not sure. Is it a "the grass is always greener" thing where we just think life was really that much easier before the technology of today. Would I like to experience it yes but I reserve the right to come back to the present and my HD TV, AC, etc etc .

I'll see your swords, shields, etc , because I'll be on the wall pouring hot oil down on you as you attempt to scale it.

RACING...Because with baseball, football, basketball, tennis, and golf, you only need one ball

I used to think that I had learned patience as I got older. Then I realized that I just didn't give a shit

I'd have been on board a few years ago, but without modern medical technology, I'd be a hurtin' pup now.

So I'll just stay around the 21st century, thanks.
