    Work from home. It’s ****ing painful because of my internet and a recent Europe wide it upgrade that has made things **** for the whole company, but in a job I took on less than a year ago I’d never dreamed I’d be able to work from home.

    I miss farm work to an extent but rolling out of bed at 8:15 has its benefits.

    My old man had a ford Orion he used to put a towel over some part of the engine in the winter overnight so it would start in the morning.
    Of course he forgot about it one day. We got to just outside shandwicks bar and had to abandon the car with flames coming out the bonnet.....he opened the bonnet and took his then girlfriends jacket off her back (from memory a very expensive moschino jacket) and tried to put out the flames with it haha.

    I guess the obvious one for me is information on literally everything at your fingertips everywhere you go.
    The old thing a teacher would say to you in school was 'you have to learn this, your not going to carry a calculator/encyclopedia/dictionary et in your pocket, are you' ......well as it happens, yes, I can find the answer or how to guide on almost anything in a matter of seconds.

    Travel across close to the entirety of the world with relative ease.

    With a handful of exceptions there is almost no country on earth you can't get a flight to and then it's possible to travel across those countries on mass transport systems. The first flights to Australia, which were arduous journeys with multiple stops, only commenced in 1935.

    Ahh there is so many when you start to think about it!

    This reply for starters...

    I suppose the ones that are almost daily routine now is using streaming services like Netflix. Not that choosing a movie is any quicker of course...by the time the Mrs chooses I’m convinced I could have been to Blockbuster and back with ease

    Fly to the USA from most UK regional airports.

    First time I went, in 1988, I had to fly from Prestwick or dahn sarf.

    Sit in your house until you know your bus is due, I remember when there weren’t even timetables at the bus stop. You pretty much just took your chances unless you phoned the bus company to find the times of the bus you wanted.

    Stay seated on any bus confident I'm probably older than those looking for a seat

    Technologically it's a fantastic achievement but I'm not sure it's particularly good for human beings individually.

    We can be contacted everywhere and at any time. Whether we allow ourselves to be contacted is another thing.

    Know what the world looks like from space.

    It’s odd to think that it wasn’t until the mid 60’s that any colour photo of the world existed and the iconic ‘blue marble’ picture that is so recognisable to most of us wasn’t taken until 1972.
