Obsolete Too Soon

Thoughts on this modern life

Do you ever feel like as soon as you buy or learn something, it’s already obsolete?

My VCR programming skills are totally going to waste.

What good is learning to wedge some wadded up gum wrappers under an 8-track tape so it won’t play two tracks at once when you can’t buy 8-tracks any more?

I hardy ever write code in Basic now.

Map folding classes were a complete waste of time.

My Disco moves, like my leisure suits, are collecting dust in my closet.

My white-out is all dried up.

I never use my Pacman pattern anymore.

Does anyone want to buy an adding machine?

Perhaps it’s me that’s obsolete?
