    I bet the only reason someone invented it is so they can show how justified the government will be in killing off granny and grandpa. “See, they are really suffering and it will be for their own good”.

    Becoming decrepit sucks ass, it’s not for the weak. That suit is a good idea to give the young whippersnappers a taste of it.

  6. When I was young

    When I was young I volunteerd to take an old relative grocery shopping. I thought the the day would never end. I could crawl faster around the store.
    Never did that again. Poor old people.

    No thanks – I’m already trapped in one. Gets more rickety by the day, too… :-(

    Old people were wonderful to me when I very young. There were a lot or very kind, interesting retired people around me in my earliest childhood. I’m a better person because of those wonderful people, and one day not too distant, I’ll have me turn. I’ll be the one driving 20 mph down the interstate, my turn signal flashing all the way… if I’m lucky enough to make it that long. It’ll be great!

    Very nice idea, but they of course couldn’t include the PAIN of daily life.

    I started to fall apart at age 24.
    Enjoy your parts while you have them.

    Don’t know if it comes through for everyone, but I enjoyed the 3½ minute commercial preceding this clip which showed how the TESLA is manufactured by robots. They CLAIMED 3,000 employees but if I saw a dozen I’d be surprised.

    As for the old folks, I spent a career slowly learning what the video taught in a couple of minutes and, at 67, I’m beginning to get a taste of it myself.

    Remember all those jokes we used to tell about old people? What was so f_ckin’ funny?

    @MJA — I’m sure you enjoyed your “parts” just as much as the next girl. And us guys enjoyed them too.

    @Boobie — What was funny was that, at the time, it wasn’t US! Now it is. I’m not 60 yet and my kids already have me with one foot in the casket and the other on the proverbial banana peel.
