I can understand the liking for a hard copy of the magazine. I love reading but I hate kindles. The feeling of the pages in the hand and the weight of the book makes all the difference.

The trouble today is that people seem to think that a screen is the ultimate way to live.

The other day I was leaving the house.I live on the village dog walk, a lovely lane with views across miles of open countryside.

This woman was walking down the road towards me. she had her dog on the lead.

She glanced up once and then carried on straight towards me never looking up again. I have seen the same with parents with children.

It seems that if it isn't on a screen it isn't worth looking at.

Percy, you and I are in the minority. I have to say that I prefer my kids engrossed in their phones than smoking which was the pastime of the young many years ago.

I also note they don't pick their noses as much as kids in my day wink.

Somehow I think I would prefer kids that picked their noses to those who have square eyes and only see the world on a screen.

A few less of the latter and we might even have a few young model builders.

They dont pick their noses because they may smudge the screenthinking

Percy, a little story. Wife and I went to the pilot at dungeness coinciding with the school run, I watched a boy breakdancing (?) along the pavement in a world of his own. I told my wife I remembered doing something like that one time when my school broke up for summer hols and I walked straight into a gas lamp post that floored me.

Happy days.

Back on topic, you need a robot magazine, then build a robot picker upper of magazines, then you have a RCM@E in hand, and a possibility of an earner from sales of the picker upper. Need a better name for it.

Can't resist, although this seems like interrupting a long conversation between old friends.

Re anti-social media, the problem seems to me that it is becoming the domain of two groups of idiots; firstly the ones who put "stuff" out there, then secondly the bigger idiots who believe it.

As for staring at i-Screens, walking into lamp-posts, under buses etc, we might encourage it in accordance with Charles Darwin's principles.

Nothing new there Bruce, self publicising fools and followers have been around since stick paintings and open fires were the last word in interior decor.

Percy, you are on this very forum, which is social media, doing a remarkable amount of social media for someone who claims not to do any social media. As are many of us.

Facebook is just a slightly different take on the social media thing, with more flashy videos and no particular subject matter (hence, anyone and everyone is on it, not always a good thing).

Or in other words, Facebook is a different sort of social media, anyone and everyone can be on it, it has no particular subject matter. Twitter much the same but again a different style. And then forums. Usually a forum has subject matter.

Like it or not Percy, you're doing social media. Regularly. Here. And now. You just did some right there. On this forum. Above this very post!
