Altho I had a fun time as a teenager, the times now are soooo much
better in every way that I can think of: better computers, better health
care, more money, better cars, more relaxed societal attitudes in areas
that count, the internet, more channels on the tube, etc. I have a damn
hard time imagining anything that isnt better now than when I was a
teen. No wonder I am an extropian. I dont see how anyone can
possibly be not optimistic about the future. All ya gotta do is simple
straight line extrapolation of any trend you choose. Corey, extropian
notions do not require extropian missionaries. All those ideas are
coming anyway, regardless of what we do. {8-] spike
