Picture This Most Hideous Scenario
Imagine if the second you were born, a timer started going off to clock your lifelong march toward obsolescence.
Imagine if every second you lived, your skin got looser, your teeth got wobblier, your boobies dangled lower, and you gasped harder when walking up stairs.
Imagine if each new moment brought you a little less sight, hearing, energy, relevance, and fashion sense.
Imagine if by the end of this journey, you were exhausted, discarded, hairless, clueless to technology, and so completely ignored you'd have no use for it anyway.
Oh, wait. That IS the system we live in. Never mind.
