Whats that coming over the hill…. is it a monster?!

No it’s my mid 30’s…. Happy Birthday to me…

I never understood birthday celebrations. Yes in bygone days it was something to celebrate the fact that you hadn’t died that winter, but in these modern times your good health is all but guaranteed. Do we really need a constant reminder by well meaning friends and family that the clock is ticking and your death is inevitable and getting closer?

It sounds morbid but I’m of an opinion that these facts should be accepted and you should come to terms with your own mortality. Although that being said I’m a big believer in nanotechnology and I keep hearing that the singularity is just around the corner so maybe I don’t have to accept my mortality… I give myself a 25% chance of living forever (or at least until I get bored). I give my offspring a 50% chance of living forever. I give my grandkids a 99.9% chance of living forever but by then it will be 2110 and we’ll be living on the moon!

All that being said I can’t complain about jelly and ice cream… always welcome!
