Good guess, but just "another era", not a "forgotten" era (grin), which is possibly where/when both your dad and I come from.

We read books, and "painted" the scenes in our minds. We used math to figure our change. It was "addition", not "the co-joining of disjoint discrete sets". We didn't feel the need to show off our underware, and a quarter would buy TWO features at the "movies", or a gallon of gas. Skates clamped onto the soles of our shoes. Priducts were actually made in the USA. Also, you could drink the water in the mountains, and breathe the air without seeing it first.

In this case, the "era" is closer than than those very "good" days of the distant past.

Ok. You just proved to me that the oil & gas industry is heavily subsidized, and the movies are not. Else going to two movies would cost $3 :geek:

I like you already, Gary. Are there other things for which your estimates are hopelessly optimistic? :lol:

That's 3 more guesses, 16 left.

Not any of those, but I did have a WONDERFUL, "silent", powerful ride in an Abner Doble steam (flash boiler) car a long time ago, near Walnut Creek, CA.

Hints: Think smaller, and of an "era" that is ... more recent. And, with or without "BeanO", "passes no gas".

Optimistic:
Yes, I suspect that the world will recover ... eventually. Perhaps after the passing of the electric age, or perhaps without the biped-who-thought-too-much and cared-too-little. Yes, certainly optimistic, it seems!

Movie: I love Avatar, both technically and for my long lost, wonderful, caring, "colored" people. At the meeting ask me about "food coloring".

I know that some earth-creatures consider themselves to be "not-colored", but I don't think I have ever actually seen a "white" person, or even one in a glacial pearl color. :)

On a space ship going to the stars, what would they do with somebody who would pee into the drinking water tanks?

No, 15 left.
Have you not played "20 Questions" before?

All Yes/No questions, of course:
Is it smaller than a toothbrush?
Is it something a strong man could carry?

Hint: He/She/It will ride with me in my 2010 Prius.

Thanks to all who are making the EFFORT to come to this first gathering. That willingness is what will give us "strangers" a chance to become friends.
CHEERS, all!
