Have you ever wondered what it would be like if Ben Franklin got into a Time Machine and came to the present day? He'd probably think we were all abducted by aliens and brought back with all of this technology.
I was talking to my aunt recently-ish and she was saying how she never could've imagined the world today when she was a kid.
Think about it.
Plush toys that come to life on the computer? Computer screens were only blue and white then! By what stretch of the imagination is this world we live in?
Do you know, if you search "mouse" on Google images, the first page is all computer mouses????? Isn't that just sad???
Don't get me wrong, I love computers and the things they can do. It just boggles my mind that just 30 some years ago, none of these things we use without a second thought didn't exist! It's amazing the progress we have made and the things we can now do!

Someone from the 60's might have said these things about certain modern techonology.

The iPod.

You're telling me you're going to fit over 1,000 songs on a piece of metal smaller than my hand? Yeah right.

The internet.

Universally share information with people from all countries. Great, next you're going to tell me I can talk with people in Japan from my bedroom.

Well... there's

Video/voice chat.

What is this "future" ? Some kind of lala land??

What's your opinion? Am I completely wrong to think that we live in a modern-day Jetsons episode?
Tell me what you think, and we'll see what you guys come up with.


  1. LOL, I actually searched google and you were right! I also saw a picture of a computer mouse, in the shape (fur and head included) of a mouse! Ewww, I would never use it!

  2. Haha yes, I know exactly what you are talking about

  3. Another important post at 'As one of Seven.' Please go an read it.

  4. Wow technology is cool here is a poem about tecnology I made up
    Technology is another word
    for making things easier for usses
    Like something made by a nerd
    Soch as the intirnet and busses
    Also the emaill and ceell phoones too
    Alongg with the ipod and..oh what the heck
    It sems I firgot inother grate invention, the spell check!

  5. I think you are right. And I am old enough to have seen a lot of these things be developed. I often feel we are in Star Trek!

  6. Actually, I heard that they are making a holodeck... and it's almost ready.
    It won't create solid holograms, but they will be life-like.
    That is pretty sweet


Commenting? I'll reply :)

Yes, even if you don't want me too ;)

And remember... I can read your comments, so I can delete them if I don't like you...

Oh and keep it clean... or my buds from the Secret Service might come down and have to "talk" to you.
