Tales of Tomorrow (1952) – The Miraculous Serum

Science Fiction TV. Before The Twilight Zone, Before One Step Beyond, there was “Tales of Tomorrow”. Early-50’s scifi TV. Some of the endings are a bit abrupt but these are fun to check out. Like this one, “The Miraculous Serum”.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lC7vr0pkauo

What will you do with your time after you retire?

What makes you happy? How do you like to spend your free time? And what do you think that will be when you are 70?

Some people live very simple lives. Some others thrive on nearly constant activity and being productive. Both of these can be overdone. Simplicity might degenerate into a rut of monotony. Being productive can become an inability to relax.

Here’s a wild thought: Lets assume there really is some sort of Afterlife or Heaven.
In Heaven, people don’t get sick. At least I’ve never heard anyone say that we do. And I’ve never heard anyone be worried about getting a house in the Afterlife. Think of what this means. It means that even if you had a Prestige career-position here on earth as a Doctor, it won’t matter there, as people no longer get sick. If you were a brilliant construction worker or engineer and built a posh 30-story building or 2 story 4bedroom house, or designed a bridge, it won’t matter, cuz people don’t need a house or to have one designed or built. So what matters once you are there?

It might be said that here, is different than there, and so things that may not matter there, will matter here anyway. Ok. So lets keep it here and ask ourselves: Alright, your career here on earth is over and now—-you are Retired. Life is simpler.  Or, is it?  What will matter then? How will you spend your time? What will be fun? What will be important? Why?

When you were a senior in high school, chances are hardly anyone cared that you were very good at drawing with crayons in the 7th grade. By the time you were in your 3rd year of college, no one cares that you did well enough in sports to get a Letterman’s jacket in 11th grade. By the time you are 40, most people will be in a different job and won’t care about the one they had at 23. By the time you are 68, who will care that you were once in Management or the Administration? So then—

Will you, be able to adjust to a Simpler Life? How will you enjoy your time? What will be important? What will make you happy? And if you are 45 or 50 now, why aren’t you already enjoying those things? What is preventing you? The clock is ticking and we are all getting older. It can be insightful, and fun, to think about.

Alternatives to Cable TV

Do you have Cable TV through Comcast or Charter? Are you paying too much? Are there too many channels that you don’t watch?

Recently, I’ve seen commercials for Sling TV. Have you ever used this?  https://www.sling.com   It sounds like it might be a good deal. You pick a basic Orange or Blue package, You can also combine them, and then you add-on what I will call “by Category”…i.e…News, Movies, etc.  I like that idea. Also, no contracts and you can cancel anytime.

But how is the picture quality? And the Sound?  This is internet-based TV, rather than cable. Do you think Sling TV would be better than Netflix? Cheaper? Better than Hulu? Besides Sling TV, I have also heard about something called ROKU. Looks like more alternatives to cable TV are becoming available, but which is best for price, picture and sound quality, amount of channels?
