Soon the changes escalated, I could no longer adapt, or accept, now I just keep silent.
If someone wants to watch me dripping chili down my chest while I watch horrible atrocities they can go for it. Nothing to see here.I used to think of myself as a reasonably well-adjusted grown man. I could take things in stride. Then they started changing things that I had been taught were fundamentally wrong, and that I not only had to accept the new way, but to embrace it! Soon the changes escalated, I could no longer adapt, or accept, now I just keep silent.
BTW, the lady who covered the TV screen, you'd do well to follow her example with modern televisions. CBS ran an article where someone developed a software hack to see into people's living rooms and demonstrated it on a Samsung tv!
I'd be trying to learn from them! — asking about what life and the world was like in their time.
When I was a kid, I had a fantasy about showing Ben Franklin around in the modern world. "It's okay—cars always go this fast!"
But they’d know stuff, and do stuff, we don’t. Probably eat the cat and rub two Boy Scouts together and cause a fire………….or summink!I saw the movie where they unfreeze a Neanderthal as a young guy. He seemed to adapt quick enough in the movie, even though he struggled.
Given the average intellect of most humans is well average, what exactly is required in terms of learning for the oldest ones who came first? I imagine they would have a lot of catching up to do and I was wondering what Algebra would be for say a Neanderthal versus someone from medieval times? How many shocks would the poor Neanderthals have to face? Let alone language going from "This my Rock" to "Electric Light at night? You are kidding me" would have to be really tough.
My wife told me her father would put a towel over the TV because his mother was pretty sure the people in the TV could see them eat at dinner and that was rude. Can't imagine what CGI would be like for her or even my own mom.
I wonder how Walt Disney and some of the others who have chosen freezing will react when and if they unfreeze successfully. Not that I would consider such an option, asking for a friend. He wasn't all that good in school.
I guess it is lucky not a bunch have been frozen and of course Zombies remain pretty focused. But imagine if someone randomly from each century was unfrozen.
Could they incorporate into society?
Yeah, true. It’s only in the last 59 years people have said nasty things and fought wars. Oh for those halcyon days of no violence, swearing, cheating or hating. Never existed. Just that today we get to know about the bad stuff quicker.I just wish everybody would mellow out. Growing up my parents never openly discussed politics, religion, gender anything, etc. I honestly don't remember any adults doing that. It was just good enough to keep one's opinions to oneself. And there seemed to be more social decorum in general.
I mean, growing up we were always taught, "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all."
It really is the best way. Everyone thinks the world is entitled to their opinions now and the art of shutting one's mouth is long lost. And yes, I realize the irony of the fact I'm sharing my opinion with the world here...
Pretty sure I've partied with him somewhere, sometime
