Damien on… Racism And Recordable DVDs
I recall a TV show where a young person was talking with an elderly person and then they said something which assumed the elder was a racist. At which point, said elder stopped them and said, “Now hang on, you’re assuming because I’m old I must be a racist – that makes YOU an AGEIST.”
It was a great line (which is why I remember it) but the truth is that these days, for that to be true the person would have to be over 70.
I’m 63 and a Child Of The Sixties – and we INVENTED anti-racism, anti-sexism, anti-homophobia, etc.
Then came the Children Of The Seventies, who proceeded to mess everything up, with their Political Correctness – leaving everyone confused and paranoid.
But what has this to do with recordable DVDs?
Well, it occurred to me there is a parallel to be drawn; imagine DVD-players are white folks and recordable DVDs are immigrants – while OLD DVD-players CLAIM to play ALL disks, the fact is when it comes to recordable DVDs – they just don’t LIKE them!
All my MODERN players are FINE with recordable DVDs – but my old machines bicker, act irrationally and frequently REJECT them…
