Humans, Bright and Dull, Both

“Fifteen hundred years ago,
everybody knew that the Earth
was the center of the universe.

Five hundred years ago,
everybody knew that the Earth was flat.

And fifteen minutes ago,
you knew that humans
were alone on this planet.

Imagine what you’ll know tomorrow.”

Agent K in Men in Black

    Reminds me of the timeline that goes something like this:

    One day ago, Adam met Eve

    One hour ago, man discovered fire

    One minute ago, man made the wheel

    One second ago, man invented electricity, the steam engine, the computer….

    One microsecond ago, man found out how to destroy it all

    (I may not have it all in the correct order, but hopefully the intent is clear)

    And imagine Dorian, all this in just 6000 years. ;)

    Your intention is clear… Hope mine is too.

  • DORIAN DE WIND, Military Affairs Columnist

    Yes, it is, Steve

    BTW, how does one make the winking face symbol?

    Let me try: .)
    No, that wasn’t it. How about: ;)

    Got it, Hallelujah!
