When a computer memory or 'brain' approaches a state of repleteness the computer tends to slow down and then become erratic and finally crashes and is useless.

An article in today's Sunday Times postulates that babies born from now on should be able to live 'forever'.

When, in future these centegenarian children find their juvenile brains cluttersd with spam, viruses, rubbish and rhubarb will there be clinics for them to have their brains formatted? If there are will they emerge helpless, unable to control their bodily functions and uttering such words as ga ga, da da, oogle goog. If there are no such clinics what will our future 250 year old youths get up to with comletely clogged brains? I fear the earth will become populated by 500 year old uncontrollable, doolaaly human robots unaware of any external influence.

My particular concern is that in a few years when I return to haunt some young acquaintances previously entered in my little black book they won't realize they are being haunted. This calls for a dram of fine malt.

Don't believe all you read in the papers!

Some years ago, I read that we would all be working a twenty hour week by now with endless leisure time. Nuclear power was to provide an everlasting supply of cheap energy. Televisions would be like a picture frame hung on the wall........well, at least the last one's coming to fruition.

I did'nt actually believe the article oresome. The post was supposed to be a bit of lighthearted nonsense. Very silly of me.

"I fear the earth will become populated by 500 year old uncontrollable, doolaaly human robots unaware of any external influence."

I work with many people like that, yet they are only a tiny fraction of that great age. What hope is there for them as they get old?
