    Apropos of nothing, since I read my first sci-fi book, at about 10 years old, (can't remember the title, it was a collection of short stories by A.E. van Vogt), I've always felt incredibly cheated that I was born too early for real space exploration....colonizing new planets, discovering new life-forms, encountering alien cultures.

    And then, of course, as is our human way, laser-blasting them to a crisp.

    Likewise, I have felt like that my whole life, 100-1000 years too early for anything great to happen.

    Too late for exploring Earth, too early for exploring Space... [WAAAAAY too early for exploring other dimensions.]

    You obviously aren't living fast enough.

    Haven't got my Z3 yet.

    And btw, what happened to 'Leave a good-looking corpse'?

    Not that I can do that anymore, either.

    Definitely not hanging around at work for the jump then, as it's liable to be near 9pm when he actually jumps at this rate.

    I've always felt that I was born a long, long, time in the future, in a galaxy far, far too close.

    If I'd been elsewhere, I too could have had a walking carpet and a laser gun!
