Where we are as a whole never ceases to amaze me.
My early memories are riding a scrawny no fenders bike with a baseball bat and fishing pole across the handles. Those were things we did to idle the day when we were not terrorizing the neighborhood playing dog-N-deer.
TV was black and white and we had 3 channels to choose from, if we were willing to stand up and go over to the TV to try wiggling the rabbit ears and tune in one of the other channels.
People call them the good old days. Memories are like that, we remember the lazy afternoons fishing, playing ball, etc. In reality we were missing a lot, but because it was not invented yet we had no clue that we were missing anything.
Today’s children have so much more potential at early ages. Amazing times.
This measuring gauge epitomizes this. It is a lot like the printers that they almost give away, but have to charge you for ink (just so they can make money somewhere in the loop).
Now we have a sophisticated measuring device, with embedded micro electronics, and they are charging less than 9 bucks. (about what the battery and screen costs).
AND I got a mini laser light sword in my workshop that is mine, mine, mine…
I am gonna miss where we are 70 years from now, but I do know one thing.
It will be amazing… Again.
