Paul your right I have been watching that programme years and years on BBC 1 and it jumps forward 10 years and kids having implants in the head so they are connected to the internet all the time and take pictures with there phones .

We need a massive solar flare to knock all this stuff out . Good thing is our capris will still work not this new stuff :lol:

All and them self tills in the shops will go and a human will need to put the prices on and somebody to read them .
Before you ask I don’t think I ever did swap a sticky price over :lol:

They were JM, but a majority of the boys in our school had them.
Once they were worn in they were very comfortable and lasted ages. Just the first couple of weeks were agony :nopity:

Pens like these were all over the place at one time, most people seemed to bring one back from holiday or a souvenir shop. And we really did marvel at them, moving ships and everything.
