the needed technology will not be economically for the average home......

i wonder what the next 50 years will bring up

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

ha. funny that stanley kubrick was more on point in 2001: a space odyssey than these scientists. especially with those LCD panels in 2001...


....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.

The truly amazing thing is that the average notebook is about 1000 times more sophisticated then the piece of crap pictured here!

Yes, not only does it have one steering wheel but it has 2 different sizes of them. One was used for car video games, the other was used for boat video games. Hell back then you could play "Save the Titanic 2000" on video game.

What I want to know is why Mr Sanders of Kentucky Fried Chicken is standing next to the machine?
