Like most people of my era, I don’t like aging, and am exercising, eating broccoli and fish oil, and trying to get enough sleep in order to try to stave it off.
Getting “set in your ways”
No one says it better than the late great Douglas Adams:
I’ve come up with a set of rules that describe our reactions to technologies:Douglas Adam
1. Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works.
2. Anything that’s invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it.
3. Anything invented after you’re thirty-five is against the natural order of things.
This always cracks me up. I first read it when I was about 30 and it was funny and rang true, and now that I’m over 35 the same holds.
