Ageing, the World Service and 70s Cops
Phew! Once again I’ve been running on adrenaline for the past few weeks. No good. No good at all. After I got over about 6 weeks of illness earlier this autumn, I’m once again on the verge of illness – some annoying flu-thing. Grrrrr.
I’ve been up to some interesting things, including working on a project which is looking into the ageing population and the problems associated with the changing demographics. Apart from thinking, ‘Jesus Christ, who is going to pay for it all??!’ it’s made me re-think the whole Transhumanist thing… at least until dementia can be avoided. My current position? Cane it hard until 85 and die.
