In all seriousness!!Ian H,
I Make you Spot on! Nano Technology is... THE Pandora's Box! Only I fear even 'Hope' may escape next time!
You wait till they combine it with Gene therapy,and Organic computer science....!!
I can't help thinking at 52 yrs, myself and my Contempories have had the Best of Times...
No Major Conflicts to engage in...The Welfare state, and all that entails,includeing the Great NHS...Fantastic strides in medicine,with the irradication of Numerous Deadly deseases...Steadily climbing standards of liveing... Great oppertunity's in education...Cheap and easy Worldwide Travel ect ,ect, ECT!
All for the first time in our Long History!!
Not to mention ALL the Great Music.and quality TV we grew up with!!...Pluss of course,and not least the invention of the Rigid Inflatable Boat
AND the Leisure time to enjoy it!
All paid for by the way, in my view at least, by the Terrorble sacrifices of Previous Generations!!
