I don't want happiness by halves, nor is half of sorrow what I want. Yet there's a pillow I would share, where gently pressed against a cheek like a helpless star, a falling star, a ring glimmers on the finger of a hand.

Neat concept in the rain room:



This is also really cool from The Creators:

There are 10 types of people-- those who understand binary, and those who don't.

The difference that age makes: I would walk into the rain room and experience it. Wow! How incredibly cool?

A 20-something, or younger: Instantly pulls out their phone and starts taking pictures. shake

I like the look form the outside of this exhibition, howevee I wonder if I would really enjoy the experience on the inside. It is just too artificial for my tastes.

Please explain what age has to do with this and on what you base your statement about peoples behaviours:
I would say that
a: 20somethings also would walk into the room to experience it
b: older people would also be taking pictures
c: before everybody had digital cameras the person that did have a camera on them when visiting something like this, would also be taking pictures.
d: taking pictures does not diminish the experience in anyway, it does however make it easier to reexperience it at a later time.

Now people who baselessly act smug toward different generations (or others peoples choices on how to experience something), there is something that really deserves a shake

Ah, yes, you're right, I am totally incapable of appreciating anything because I own a cellular phone with a camera. How very perceptive of you, how lost and alone I am. cry

I think the "youngins always on their phones" is an interesting stereotype. More of the younger generations are familiar with newer technology, but at the same time, the majority people who try to order food where I work while on their cell phones are over 40.

I definitely noticed the same thing when I worked retail. Bluetooth was especially bad, and I hardly got a customer around my age who would walk up to the counter on the phone or talking to themselves.

Though I will say I am more inclined to retreat to my phone to scroll around on BGG when faced with someone who dismisses me because of my age, because why should I let them down/bother interacting with someone who refuses to accept that people aren't exclusively resigned to the stereotypes of their generation (and other things).

BUT at the same time it's not all "40-somethings" who have the idea that my generation is full of people who cannot and will not function as capable human beings. I'm routinely faced with a few friends who take great pleasure in dissecting ever detail of how our generation is "the worst since the baby boomers".

People, man. Can't live with them, but without them we'd cease to actually exist. shake

edit;;

AND, BACK ON TOPIC:

Both of those are SO COOL. I hope I have a chance to go to something like it in the future.

Dear person in rain room video,

Holding out your palms and tilting your face upwards is pointless if there's no rain to fall on you...
