*thought for the day*
Our server at school has been down for the past few days, which has given me time to reflect again on how very dependent I am on machines of various kinds.
My lights to wake up
My kettle to make me coffee
My geezer to make me hot water
My remote control to open the gate of my complex
My car to get me to and from work
My computer to work
The internet to work
Email to work
My projector and smart-board to work
My cell-phone to communicate and tell the time
...and of course a million other machines that I will never personally see, touch or probably even know exist
And we think we're the master race?
