Stop letting danger pay attention to you
Steve Bryant

This needed to be said. Everyone today thinks they’re soooo much smarter than their parents and grandparents because of all the gee-whiz shiny toys invented and commercialized thanks to quantum mechanics and artificial intelligence when they are distancing themselves from real-time experience and the particular knowledge that it imparts to an alarming degree. Heaven forbid the apocalypse actually arrives when “access denied” day brought on by the ultimate hack happens. Only those luddites who maintained basic physical skills from what is rapidly becoming a bygone era will be able to survive. By the way, I had a 1990 Camry with a V-6, front wheel drive and a 5-speed manual, the last year it was made. It got me through blizzards and into the mountains to ski very handily, thank you.
