Just Ten Years Ago

Just ten years ago.
Before the computer age,

-- An APPLICATION was for employment.

-- A PROGRAMME was a television show.

-- WINDOWS were something you hated to clean.

-- A KEYBOARD was a piano.

-- MEMORY was something you lost with age.

-- A CD was a bank account.

-- COMPRESS was something you did to garbage.

-- LOG ON was adding wood to a fire.

-- A HARD DRIVE was a long trip on the road.

-- A MOUSE PAD was where a mouse lived.

-- CUT you did with scissors.

-- PASTE you did with glue.

-- A WEB was a spider's home.

-- And a VIRUS was a flu !!!!!


Now, in the 21 century...

-- Our communication - Wireless

-- Our dress - Topless

-- Our telephone - Cordless

-- Our cooking - Fireless

-- Our youth - Jobless

-- Our food - Fatless

-- Our labour - Effortless

-- Our conduct - Worthless

-- Our relation - Loveless

-- Our attitude - Careless

-- Our feelings - Heartless

-- Our politics - Shameless

-- Our education - Valueless

-- Our follies - Countless

-- Our arguments - Baseless

-- Our boss - Brainless

-- Our Job - Thankless

-- Our Salary - Very less

-- Our Future - Hopeless!

  1. Very less, I like that, the phrase that is, not the work.

  2. Ouch! It hurts only because it is so true.

  3. I think that first posting is a little bit dated since Windows 95 (in 1995) is what really made computers and the internet a part of everyday life. (Wow...has it really been that long already???!?)

    That second posting hits the nail square on the hard that it hurts. Kudos to whoever wrote it.

  4. Agus, ten out of ten would feel the same. When is it going to be enough? Never, I guess.

    Pandabonium, right. Ouch!!

    MM, you may have a few of your own to add to that list.

  5. haha... Virus is still a flu..

    BIRD FLU!!!!
