Going, Going, Gone!

Just received my Yellow Pages, flagged with "Final Edition" on front cover.
Wonder if it'll become a collector's item one day smile.gif

I have to confess to mixed feelings about that, on the one hand it's yet another symbol of a gentler age now cast off but on the other hand it is almost totally redundant these days and a waste of paper to boot. I harbour a secret fear that the interweb, like Skynet, will one day turn against humanity and send us back to the stone age! biggrin.gif

That I am afraid is inebitible. Its just called the Internet Of Things, rather than Skynet.

We won't be needing it. Once Jeremy's people are in power, everything will be nationalised. You'll only need one shop - GUM. That's why the Ruskies have been talking to them.

I'm negotiating right now, as we speak, for the rights for western Europe's biggest Trabant dealership and repairers. Gonna make me an oligarchy!

I can just visualise my wife and I, helicopter deck of Roman's yacht, comparing crew sizes, laughing about the bad old days, before universal socialism came along to make us both so obscenely rich. Can't wait!
