Oh… irony, how sweet you sometimes are. You know how the things we say can come around to haunt us? The test of time is a tough nut to crack, and this time, it’s all about failing.

The Facebook page "Posts that did not age well" is a hell on earth, showing how quotes, comments, posts, and everything you saw online some time ago did not age gracefully. In fact, some of the things look so utterly ridiculous in the current light, it may make you wonder what the heck they were thinkin’. So let’s go down this cringy memory lane, and after you’re done, be sure to check out part 1.

If humans could see the future, this post would probably have not existed. Because there’s nothing quite like failing the test of time. All the things you believed and said look more or less absurd in retrospect. Unless your job is predicting the future for a living.

Mysterious as it sounds, seeing what comes next is complex, critical, and quite a different job than the myths suggest. Paul Saffo, a technology forecaster in Silicon Valley, wrote in a piece for Harvard Business Review that “prediction is concerned with future certainty.” And that alone sounds quite paradoxical.

Paul explains further: “forecasting looks at how hidden currents in the present signal possible changes in direction for companies, societies, or the world at large.” Thus the goal of forecasting is to “identify the full range of possibilities.”

Plus, “unlike a prediction, a forecast must have a logic to it,” says Paul. That means that the forecaster must always be able to articulate, explain, and defend this logic. “That’s what lifts forecasting out of the dark realm of superstition,” argues Paul. In the end, forecasting is “nothing more (nor less) than the systematic and disciplined application of common sense.” And that common sense is something we all have.

It has been 19 years, and my heart still aches every time I see the NYC skyline. For me it has been gone longer than it existed (I was born in the 80s), but the Twin Towers will always be iconic, quintessentially New York.

About 1970 I remember a friend, a stage set designer, shaking his head and saying, "They've just destroyed the skyline of the city with those boxes."

When I would travel the George Washington Bridge from NJ to NYC, and I drove that route a few times weekly when I was younger, the skyline, with the Twin Towers, always got my adrenaline going. I can remember when it was built. It was an exciting and momentous time. Windows on the World was an amazing restaurant. Took my mother several times for Mother’s Day. And I too, after almost 2 decades, has had the adrenaline replaced with a heavy heart, still.

Was in Ny right after, the front face of one of the towers was prominently half torn down, we saw it in every cover photo, but passing by still open roads which coincidentally one is a high pass service road, revealed it was terrifying HUGE, and it scared the sh+t out of me.-

I have several of these brochures as well. I have not been back since it happened. I would breakdown and cry when I saw the skyline without the towers. I always took the trip down there every time I was in town. Even got to go out on the heliport on a calm day. The only good idea Trump ever had was to rebuild them EXACTLY, with modern material, with an extra floor on both. The Freedom Tower just isn't the same. I lost a good friend that terrible day.

The deaths of sll those new yorkers and passengers was unjustified. The deaths of innocents caused by American/western forces is just as unjustified. It's a horrible part of human nature that we cant seem to shake, the need to fight and kill one another. If a different species of hominid had survived (ie Neanderthal etc) we no doubt would be warring homo sapiens vs homo neanderthalensis. But it's just us so we find differences amongst ourselves :(

I read an interview sometime in the recent years with the son of the man who invented plastic bags. He said that, if his father knew that people use a plastic bag once and then immediately throw it away, he would have been horrified and saddened. The reason the man invented plastic bags was specifically so they could be reused over and over again

A lot of people underestimated and still underestimate the dangers of Corona and they think that the media are lying to them. ( Wonder who gave them that idea??). If history repeats itself and people behave like they behaved during the Spanish Flu, there are going to be plenty mass graves all over the world.
