Let’s Have Some More Lists!

Observatory

And while we’re on the subject, here are…

Eleven Things I never thought I’d live to see;

Water being sold for £1 a bottle under the label ‘Portable Hydration’.

A popular television show that consisted of uninteresting people bickering and sleeping.

Anti-Semitism returning after the horrors of the war.

Football being derailed by the players’ girlfriends’ affairs.

Space exploration ending at the Moon.

The astonishing panoply of Arabic culture being reduced to a few hate figures.

The proud celebration of stupidity (see posts passim).

Jeans hanging around your knees.

New-Gen Feminism: Screaming drunk girls dressed as angels, Miley Cyrus.

Handheld communication devices like on Star Trek, only better.

Bruce Forsyth outliving nearly all of my family.

Seven Things I Lived To Be Disappointed By:

Jeremy Clarkson

Flat TV screen – still not exactly flat, are they?

The furniture on the space station in 2001 still looking more futuristic than what’s currently
available in Oxford Street.

Television; lots on, virtually nothing to watch.

The cool electric car

Little England mentality growing instead of vanishing

The Daily Express still being purchased (but by whom? Asylum inmates? Shepherds?)

    Precisely why we can’t have nice things like flying cars and jetpacks! Chav bastards.

    Am I the only one who still finds the sight of two people walking along together but chatting on their phones to other people or young parents ignoring the kid in the buggy and doing same pretty depressing…..?

    How about having lunch “together” and talking to two other people on their phones? Or were they so “into” cell phones that they were actually talking to each other. I just heard a discussion on the radio about an experiment with reporting and twittering at the same time. It apparently works but is a bit problematic as to what goes on the tweet and what is the “official” report. I just can’t imagine that.
