I was born in 66. I found out I was vaccinated for smallpox. I survived. I went bicycling for years without a helmet. I was lucky. Someone
talked me into wearing one. I may have mentioned I estimated my speed downhill a couple of times at 60 mph. I survived but that was dangerous
without a helmet. Years later my mountain bike fell apart and I fell and hit my head on concrete. Thank goodness I was wearing a helmet. My helmet
was smashed up. I might not have woken up in the hospital if not for the helmet.
Some say they have to have a cell phone. I still do not. I did buy an iPad when it came out. I remember when the first iPhone came out I walked
into a Best Buy store. I looked at the tiny iPhone, then asked the clerk, do you have anything with a much larger screen and a data only plan? The
clerk looked puzzled and said no.
I'm not going to post all the stuff I got away with. I even settled disagreements with bullies by fighting them. I won. No police were ever
involved. I preferred not to fight anyone and only did it in self defense.
I didn't have access to a pc or even an R rated channel on tv until after High School. There was no Internet for the public until years later. We
had to use books to look up information. I actually read several novels as well. That's one thing I miss because not everything I read about has
been turned into a movie yet. All the Marvel super heroes in the movies now are the super heroes guys my age used to read about in the comic
I was hoping there would be a super powerful Phoenix in the X Men series that they would worry about her going super nova. She did go super nova in
the comic book series but she rose from the dead or from her ashes. The Silver Surfer was a regular worker for Galactus who was so powerful, he
routinely ate whole worlds. The Fantastic Four movie didn't depict him as well as the comics did. There is still more time to make more movies. My
generation is bringing our fantasies to the movies and I like it. It makes sense that the people making these movies are about the same age as me.
I think it's great to see what we used to visualize in books appear in the movies. In another ten years, I imagine a younger generation will be
making movies based on their fantasies.
