  7. 7. New Technology Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works.

Anything invented after you’re thirty-five is against the natural order of things. [Douglas Adams, Peter Guzzardi, Terry Jones, The Salmon of Doubt] jont@ninelocks.com
