Stuff that won't last

Texting- why would you when you can call people.
computers- just a fad. Paper way easier to read. Typing is spools
bottled water- tap is free stupid.

CDs - They don't fit in your front pocket like a cassette and you can't record your favorite songs straight off the radio!

i posted a few of these a couple of weeks ago when we were going through another round of sanctimonious "it's just a gimmick" postings here.

here are some more:

1) "I think there is a world market for maybe five computers." Thomas Watson, chairman of IBM, 1943.
2) "Heavier than air flying machines are impossible." - Lord Kelvin, 1895.
3) "640K ought to be enough for anybody." - Bill Gates, 1981.
4) "The horse is here to stay but the automobile is only a novelty, a fad." -
The president of the Michigan Savings Bank advising Henry Ford's lawyer not to invest in the Ford Motor Co., 1903.

"Evolve" is OK. The hot button word around here starts with a "G" and rhymes with "toastbusters."

1. Texting....I agree but then I'm an old fart. All of my kids and grandkids use texting before a call. while I don't and have told them to call me they like it and are so friggin fast at it that its alsmost as fast as a call...plus you can't get a voice mail or non answer. Something like voice recognition texting might replace actual texting by hand...but it is here until the collapse of our civilisation. Wrong.

2. Computers... See civilisation and collapse above. If this does not happen .... Wrong!

3. Bottled water....In case you haven't noticed there is a clear lack of good clean water being available, worldwide. In fact it's very likely that wars will be fought over the available water supplies within the next 50 years. Clean water is also becoming scarce even in this country in many areas.
Paying for bottled water when you have good tap water is dumb...( correct).

Thinking that bottled water is going away is not . Wrongest!

Note that Collapse of civilisation mentioned above may precipitate you being right about all three of these...but only by chance.

There's no way dignitaries, heads of state and highly educated people would be reduced to communicating via Twitter.

I cautiously admit I don't know how to use twitter. Signs of impending age showing.

How do you expand on a thread (twit-thread/subject)?

yeah you are probably right....plus wars are expensive and there isn't any funding available, and people will tire of it.....Oh wait......

I see what you did there!

I have no idea. All I know is that it went from being a Paris Hilton 18 character assault on the English Language to being used by every mayor, governor and member of congress.

I have a twitter account which was created when Charlie Sheen had his meltdown (very entertaining). I have no idea how to make use of it.

The only way porn can be a success via twitter is if the premature ejaculatory population is more than that is reported.

Chargers fans being bandwagoners. It is only a 40 year fad. They will be into it for the longhaul very soon.

Facebook. Its just like mysapace anyway. And google will smash it anyway.

Gas price hikes. Over $2 per gallon can't last.

Professional Football!

This idea that people would PAY to see grown men play a game, when they should
be productive members of society and contribute something.

It Can't last as everyone knows the best athletes are amateurs anyway!
