I remember them well.... it was also filled with poverty and cholera....
Anthrax
Bubonic Plague
Crusades
Dysentery (still not hard to find - The Good Times® aren't entirely gone....)
....I'm stuck on "E"....


Ebola. It's the only disease that comes to mind that starts with E. Except eczema and Elephantiasis, and I don't think there have ever been fatal pandemics of either of those.

It's a good thought, but not really "historical" enough.  Still, if nothing else turns up.
(Note that, as with "crusades", it doesn't need to be a physiological-disease plague, just
something awful that happened back in the Good Old Days®)

It seems to me that in the vast complexities that we have today that key themes have been repeated incessantly. Literature has (for the most part) become a pile of concepts recorded and retold over and over. Most music hits on the same notes it has for ages (not in the actual sound, in a lyrical sense) and television has become such an opiate that i can't even seem to look anywhere near it these days. So in all it seems life of late has become this hobby horse that humanity has been riding to death, handing it off to its children so they can redecorate it, then ride it again and so on. Anyone else been having this notion? Or is it just me that thinks life has become a bore.


yep, time for another revolution. Lets refill the world with a sense of glory and mysticism.

you need to fall in love.

I got immunised for yellow fever the other day, it causes encephalitis, my doctor tells me it may not kill me.  Which may or may not be a good thing…  I’m full of a longing for the good old days… when motorsport was dangerous and penicillin cured everything.  Maybe not.

I don’t really like the Clash or the Dead Kennedys….   

I had an argument with a girl once, she was arguing against the industrial revolution, I may have called her an idiot.

....or a  Luddite?
plenty to be said against the Industrial Revolution..... as it was driven by greed and mainly about cheapening labour costs....as with many of these things the actual inventors and thinkers only saw progess where the people funding their experiments saw only profit

that’s more of a critique of the nature of capitalism, the human consequences of the economics of adam smith and his like was absolutely terrible.  Fortunately its hasn’t been adopted by a bunch of social darwinists and passed off as economic theory in our own times… 

One of my tutors said something that has stuck with me for a long time;  “this must be the only case in human history where one failed idiom (Keynesianism) has been replaced with another.” But then again greed is a powerful motivator.
