    Tell me honestly, is this a world you want to live in?

    "Zhu Peiying, head of Huawei’s 5G wireless labs, is showing off devices that can connect to the new technology. From a smart toothbrush that collects data about how well you brush your teeth, to a smart cup that reminds you when you should drink some water, this is a world where everything you can think of is being measured and analysed."

    Much of it has simply gone too far, in my opinion. I mean...really?!

    When I had a forced disconnection from my usual arsenal of technology products, for almost a year, guess what I learned? You can live without it! Yes, it turns out that you don't actually NEED much of the stuff you have. It made me more mindful of what I do, how I do it, how much time I spend doing various things, etc.

    I love technology as much as the next nerdy, geek guy, but enough already. Some of it is downright ridiculous.

    If poison has passed its expiration date, is it more poisonous...or is it no longer poisonous?

    I vote for a third choice, less poisonous. :)

    It shouldn't be more, because of chemical half-life stuff.

    And unless we're talking WAY past its expiration date, it shouldn't be inert.

    Chemical half-lives aside, depending on how the compound reacts in the body it could potentially be more lethal, or more painful on the way to demise...

    Three letters: DVR :D

    Seriously, I record stuff day and night, on two DVRs, and just watch whatever I'm in the mood for regardless of what time it is. With most of my favorite shows, which I record automatically, I honestly don't know when they actually air. *shrug*

    Lots of us old farts around here!

    Hell, I'm an old fart who still uses a landline. :eek:

    (As I've explained before, my smartphones don't get strong or reliable signals in my house. My landline, which my family has had--with the same number--since 1971 works perfectly, 100% of the time.)

    I suppose it's similar to blowing a raspberry but it's nowhere near. That coulda woulda shoulda turned out to be a disheartened breath . Still can't really explain how someone might make that sound with their lips if it isn't on someone's belly. I've made it after I've been disheartened though . I don't know pbrrrrr maybe :p
