Wednesday Wisdom

If history repeats itself, and the unexpected always happens, how incapable must Man be of learning from experience.

    Maybe we just run out of time - if we could live for a thousand years, just maybe, we might learn a thing or three.

    And you could take your time paying off the mortgage as well.

    Every 11 years you could have a years holiday.

    And you would have plenty of time to learn how to open child proof bottles - I hope.

  2. There is not enough time in the universe to learn how to open child proof bottles (or cupboards, gates, fridges and so on and so forth).

    Yeh, and this very day I turned up for a meeting (OK xmas lunch) at an ex-clients new office.

    It had a security gizmo, buttons and things, and instructions which I followed.

    I waited, and waited but no one came, so like the fuckwit I am I repeated said instructions. Said gizmo looked great with little lights and numbers doing there thing, but no one came to the door.

    What the fuck do you do?

    I had a fucking brain wave.

    iJustin knocked on the bloody door - it worked.

    Simple technology is always the best, especially for simple folk like moi - or is this a sign of aging?
