    Personally, I would hate to have that much responsibility. I would probably drive myself crazy by blaming myself when ever bad things happened to those I was in charge of.

    I look at it like this.
    I may live longer but if I'm not enjoying it, what's the point.

    I need some adventure in life.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    That's what the supa-doopa future technology does, so life is perfect for all.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    I suppose it could be interesting to start an engineer school with this technology to teach the people how it all works and how to invent more as they please. It would ruin the godhood thing, but it would be nice to see people prosper.

    And i suppose you'd have them sacrifice leeks, rather than virgins? You take all the fun out of being a god.

    I would promote the sacrifice of carrots to bunnicula.

    I wouldn't want to live in any of those times. Visit most certainly...but not live.

    If I could visit the past, I'd visit during the 1940's era - but not for any respectable or admirable reason - only because I loved the 'style' that whole decade brought. Where men dressed like gentlemen and women dressed as ladies... the fashion statement to me was - class! Perhaps I'm just nostalgic because of my obsession with old movies, but that is definitely a time I'd like to visit.
    Damn straight! I love the fact that, in those days, men wore suits and hats. The popular style now sucks. Business casual is to fashion what a cubicle is to furniture. Even though my office is business casual, I always wear a shirt and tie as a small rebellion against business casual. Men should dress more like Cary Grant and less like Ashton Kutcher.

    But the 1940's is fascinating to me for other reasons. The whole world is in flux. Since losing my grandfather last summer, I've been studying more and more about that time period. I think we sometimes view the outcome of World War II as being guaranteed. But those people who lived in that time had no such guarantee, or even any hint that the Allies might win it until late 1944. Can you imagine what it must have been like to live with the uncertainty that we were fighting against pure, unadulterated evil, and that the evil could win?

    I wear cargo jeans and a golf shirt to work every day. I love it. Especially given the fact that my pants have many pockets in which I can carry my tools when I have to do work on the wiring or on a PC or server.
