Kids Nowadays


Today at lunch I heard some very similar complaints as those in that quote, coming from a few of my colleagues.

Every generation since ancient times seem have been mocked by the previous generation for being worse than they were when they were young.

Time Travel Stories

I love time travel in fiction.

That is one of the main reasons why I love Doctor Who.

 

I love how this storytelling device can put ideologies from vastly different cultures, separated by decades or centuries, up against each other. By doing this, we can compare them, and find strengths and weaknesses in both. It can also just lead to funny jokes, or cool imagery, like a medieval knight riding on a velociraptor and wielding a laser sword.

I love how time travel can be used as video game check-points. Did you fail at something? Why not

My Trip To The British Museum, A Decade Ago

I am continuing to curate my own Facebook photos, and this time I have found some cool images from the time I visited The British Museum in 2008.

This is from the same trip to London as I mentioned in my previous post. I had taken a lot of pictures there, but most of them were very blurry, so the curation-process went rather quickly.

If you have not been, and ever get the chance, The British Museum is absolutely worth a visit.

There are plenty of interesting statues, murals, archeological curiosities and other old junk from all over the world, and timescale.

Sure, a lot of these pieces were stolen from their rightful owners during colonial times, but you can’t knock the convenience of having all these interesting things in a single location.

I am however of the opinion that if the countries that originally owned this stuff wants them back, the museum should just hand it out.

After all, it’s not like everybody wants their old stuff back. The museum would be left with plenty, I’m sure.

There is this sort of macabre sense of doing something wrong when gazing down on the mummies and skeletons of long dead people.

But it is only matter, the persons they once were have long since passed. No chance that they will take offence.

 

Here is the full album, with a few more pictures, if you want to see the full set.
