Sssshhhh....


.. Which reminds me, the other day I was filling in one of those survey things (IIRC, the LootCrate one) and when I got to the Age thing, the list wasn't in the usual "0-12, 13-18, 19-24, etc" list.
Instead, it was a big long list of individual numbers.
.. And I had to scroll ....

Not just the week - life is flying along at a rate of knots.

It's depressing.

Semi-related, I only just found out that Jiggawatts was a mispronunciation of Gigawatts! I have no idea how closely it matches the power of a bolt of lightning though.

It is... My mates kids, twins in fact, turned 18 just the other day... I was like "Jesus, thats flew"

In my minds eye, I still think I'm as young as ever, but, I'm starting to feel it more and more now with aches and stuff, I used to be able to go forty to the dozen at work, never stopping... Now, I do need an occasional minute... I would lift anything at work with no bother, now, I huff and puff and can feel my back having a good auld whinge.

Part of the game though, cannot run away from it, I'm defo over the brow of the hill, just free wheeling now, only problem is, like mentioned above, life is passing me faster and faster and faster, and I'd be fucked if I can find a brake to slow it down a bit!

My daughter is 9 in a few weeks, son is 16. Three stepdaughters, 14, 21 and 23, 2-month old granddaughter, and another on the way.

I'm sure I was at school doing my exams last fucking week. Fuck knows how I got here.

I think learning new stuff or anything that taxes the brain out of its auto pilot mode can put some breaks to the speed of time.

Not so much an incorrect pronunciation, but rather an old American pronunciation, something Doc Brown would have used in the 1950s.
www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/gigawatt Merriam-Webster even has the old pronunciation as the audio.

however he said it in the 80s.


... apparently a bolt of lightning will usually have about 10 billion watts, or 10 jiggawatts. That seems a waste of 8.79 jiggawatts of electricity, he sould have channeled the excess into a super battery or something.

Whichever way we say it, twenty-one of them still went directly straight up his flux capacitor.

I'm not bothered which way he says it, as long as he doesn't start using animated jif's..
