    Keep thinking about this exchange, made me laugh a lot! About the "tiny TV phone"

    Excerpts from a conversation, Fay Crocker in "The Vast of Night"

    "... so like a miniature television screen, and you keep it in your pocket, so you can call your friend in Rome or New York or anywhere and see his face on your dial and have a conversation, in color! ...

    ... But, oh, it also said that if you call your friend and he doesn't answer, then you know they're dead ...

    ... they always have it with them, so they can always answer" ...

    need to rewatch that again now

    Had to rewatch to get quotes that were in my head right, around the 17 min mark, the "miniature TV stuff"
    ...also around about there, "traveling underground in hotdog trains"! (I messed that one up a bit, I think!)

    “What is my joy if all hands, even the unclean, can reach into it?
    What is my wisdom, if even the fools can dictate to me?
    What is my freedom, if all creatures, even the botched and impotent, are my masters?
    What is my life, if I am but to bow, to agree and to obey?”

    We're all dying. The world's just a hospice with fresh air.

    Don't blame people for disappointing you , blame yourself for expecting too much from them..
