Those darn kids
I am sitting in a Youth Hostel in Frankfurt listening to a strange old Australian dude with a porn star mustache talking someone’s ear off. This is a crude attempt at a transcript of his monologue.
“…look at them all with their heads in the computer, people spend too much time on the Internet, I reckon one day when a baby is born we will, you know, stick something in their neck, attach them straight into a computer like on the matrix, you know,………….. who wants that. And then genetic engineering, that scares me. I was in the center of Berlin the other day and there were hundreds of kids, I dunno, about sixteen years old, they were walking past me; and they were all the same, all perfect, like somebody was making them in a factory.”
