    • Brother, you may only hate change, rather than "progress."  100 yeasrs ago,  and today, if you had/have a "telephone" hoked up to copper wires and the power in the entire area went out, the telephone worked.  It had and has it's own power suppy - humongous wet cell batteries backed up by generators.  We had a power outage and lost telephone service for over a week December, 2020., due to our "modern," "advanced, "voice-over-internet digital service."  Moreover, Spectrum, the only supplier in our area, only takes a service call when your telephone works.  YES! They lold me, when I called from the library, to call again when my telephone worked.  Otherwise they cannot schedule a "service call."   We are in a cell "black hole" and only the one cable-based supplier is Spectrum.  This is progress? 
    • I am only 66 years old but have seen much technology come and go...my Mom's 78s, 33s, 45s, cassettes, 8-tracks, LaserDisks, CDs, DVDs, iPod, slide rules, adding machines, Burroughs calculators, desktop calculators, My first "pocket calculator" was a Royal with a corded stylus, 8 digit capacity (but only 4 at a time) with Nixie tube displays..  Thought we were rich when we could plunk down $129.99 for the TI SR-10 that would do exponents and square roots.  Can't even get a CD player in a new car anymore.  And the first Pulsar digital watch with red LED display.   I hate progress.  
    • NJ's entire unemployment system basically collapsed during COVID because no one knows COBOL anymore. When did they discover this was going to be a problem? July 2003. https://www.nj.com/coronavirus/2020/05/nj-failed-to-fix-unemployment-system-for-19-years-records-show-now-murphy-pleads-patience.html  
    • Yes, hmmmm... Stamp Collecting, one of my favorites...only 919 Scouts awarded in 2019. https://blog.scoutingmagazine.org/2020/02/17/2019-merit-badge-rankings-which-were-the-most-and-least-popular/ How many books do you think they printed?  There are five sitting in our Scout Shop (although I'm not sure they are current versions.) (I did not mention Bugling, another favorite, at the bottom of the list, because it is incorporated into Music MB pamphlet; 12882 awarded.)
