    Now, I never missed through the 60's. Missed it by about a decade.

    Damn. So much good stuff that I missed out on.

    Anyway, as a broad cultural theme, I wonder if the present period could be compared to the 1960's?

    1960's: tons of drugs. Now: silk road and bitcoin.
    1960's: the establishment intruding into people's lives and a counter culture backlash: Vietnam war call ups and marches, hippie movement etc; Now in 2013: NSA, Snowden, Manning, Assange, assassinations by drone, Anonymous...

    This time could be called the counter cultural movement against the incoming internet of things, smartmeters and the end of all privacy and the 1984ish, Big Brother state?

    Where is Elvis? Surely he is still alive in some FBI experimental lab.

    [Please don't take this thread too seriously. To do so is a Big Brother violation and three Minority Report officers will come to your door and take lethal action. Have a nice day. ]

    You're the perfect example of what a bit of culture can do in the wrong hands.

    Yeah, there's no problem, just opt-out of stupid and your set.
