It's kind of sad that that era is coming to an end. I can't imagine all of the things that they've seen. I mean, people who grew up in that era must've been born knowing horses, carts, and a style that (as much as I know from history books) seems medieval. And then to grow up in a century of untold war, along with planes, computers, the automobile, electricity, etc.. In other words, it sure sounds like (and I hope it was) one hell of an exciting life.

I still can't get over doing things with a slide rule and steam engine, and ending up a century later with an almost completely electronic machine. Fephisto (talk) 12:24, 25 August 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
