Neil deGrasse Tyson @neiltyson ·  
I’m feeling pensive & reflective of years gone by. If you’ll indulge me, I’d like to share some of these observations...

#WhenIWasYourAge : None of my toothpaste tubes could stand up on their caps.
#WhenIWasYourAge : Anything wrapped in plastic was easy to open.
#WhenIWasYourAge : Weather predictions were no more than guesses about whether it might rain tomorrow.
#WhenIWasYourAge : Pluto was a planet, but those "in the know" all knew its days were numbered.
#WhenIWasYourAge : It took a whole hour to bake a potato.
#WhenIWasYourAge : It took a week to learn whether your photos came out okay.
#WhenIWasYourAge : We had to open all doors by ourselves. None of them knew we were coming.
#WhenIWasYourAge : Being "all thumbs" meant you were clumsy.  Today it means you’re good at texting.
#WhenIWasYourAge : You had to actually get off your butt, and approach the TV to change the channel.
#WhenIWasYourAge : There were hardly any one-way streets.
#WhenIWasYourAge : People were skinnier.
Want more?  Or am I clogging your inbox?
Oooookay...
- #WhenIWasYourAge : Your expected age of death was much closer to your age of retirement.
#WhenIWasYourAge : We went to the Moon,  nine times. Today, in low Earth - Orbit, we boldly go where hundreds have gone before.
#WhenIWasYourAge : The meat in a fast-food Hamburger was as large as the Bun itself.
#WhenIWasYourAge : You knew where & when the constellations could be found in the sky by using your “Brain App”.
#WhenIWasYourAge : My car got seven miles per gallon. With a tail-wind.
#WhenIWasYourAge : We used large Maps made of paper, and none of us could ever re-fold them back the way they came.
#WhenIWasYourAge : When you fell off the monkey-bars in the playground you landed on cement.
#WhenIWasYourAge : The average Watermelon had a Billion seeds in it.
#WhenIWasYourAge : Before Xerox copiers, we all got high in elementary school by smelling mimeograph ink.
#WhenIWasYourAge : Earth's daily rotation was about a half a millisecond faster than today.
#WhenIWasYourAge : On average, the Moon was about 1.5 meters closer to Earth than it is today.
#WhenIWasYourAge : We made phone calls in Phone Booths, which is also where Superman occasionally changed his clothes.
#WhenIWasYourAge : Your home telephone could drop to the floor thousands of times and never break.
#WhenIWasYourAge : No matter what they contained, Bottles were not squeezable.
#WhenIWasYourAge : Airplanes were so loud, you had to pause your conversation whenever one flew overhead.
#WhenIWasYourAge : People were never "living with their disease". We cured them. Or they died from it.
#WhenIWasYourAge : Exhaust from City buses billowed at the perfect height for everybody nearby to inhale it.
#WhenIWasYourAge : PaulSimon wrote this pre-GlobalWarming lyric "The autumn winds blow chilly & cold, September I'll remember”
#WhenIWasYourAge : We actually used a sheet of paper laced with carbon to make a carbon copy, “the cc:" of a Letter.
#WhenIWasYourAge : There were ten known asteroids with orbits crossing Earth's. Now, we know more than ten-thousand.
#WhenIWasYourAge : There was hardly any transparent plastic.
#WhenIWasYourAge : You needed a can opener to open a can of beer. And you’d put two holes in it. The second, for air flow.
#WhenIWasYourAge : Looking up somebody's number in the Phone Book was only one of a dozen household uses for it.
#WhenIWasYourAge : The Soviet KGB would’ve killed for the surveillance & checkpoint measures that are common in the USA today

Thanks for your time.  I think I’ve got only one more left in me...

#WhenIWasYourAge: Religion was taught in Sunday School, not in your Science Classroom.

I am not going to make the usual joke about Skynet
The processor, named TrueNorth, may eventually excel at calculations that stump today’s supercomputers.

I don't this guy's who designed this ever owned a true watch like a Omega or Breitling or even Longines. This has no design at all just a metal ring with a screen.

Makes perfect sense. Isn't this what the modern cosmology all about? Everything from nothing...

The real question is do you like the idea of a Multiverse or The Universe that requires a Creator? So far we have not found anything that is one of a kind. Why does the universe have to be any better?
