Korr! Let's not go there...shall we? For one thing, I'm older than you and for two, uh...that atmosphere isn't breathable so I'd rather not go there.
And for three or fifty-three...well, those are just numbers and they're kind of abstract so nope...not going there either. Time marches on... O0

I’m not doing years anymore, once a year I’m going to celebrate my mileage.

When all the various distances for the Earths rotation, movement through Solar System, Milky Way, etc are summed we moving at approx 800 km/s, so we each travel approximately 25 billion km per year.

That means I’ve travelled 1.3 trillion (ish) km so far… our nearest neighbour star is Alpha Centauri @ 41.32 trillion km just for reference.

Very cool and good advice.

Just remember it's not the years, it's the mileage!

Imagine a future of going to a person's funeral...
Yes, friends, he was a good man and it's a shame that he left us having such low mileage. He still had tread left on those shoes! :2funny:

Old? How old would you feel if you still had the movie posters on your wall?

Every morning I wake up and thank Neo I've been freed from the Matrix.

Have you seen the youtube video where they postulate that Agent Smith was really The One?

Odd spacing for posters, you either have very few posters or a very large house lol.

I took the blue & red striped pill... I'm not quite sure where I am...

It covers most of one wall. I had to work around that "Help! I've fallen and I can't get up!" thingy but used a tape measure so they're the exact same distance from the ceiling and each other.

If you pull the cord perhaps you get de-rezzed and sucked/ uploaded out of this matrix and into 'actual reality'.

Go On... Pull it an see... lol.

Yea I don't feel old about this at all, just grateful I was at the perfect age to enjoy it... (25 ish...)
And I enjoy it just as much now when I have my annual re-watch of it... It's still very fresh in my eyes.

Jack in and ready yourself for The Matrix 4 coming to a pseudo-theatre near you 5-21-2021. I knew keeping the posters from 1-3 would pay off eventually.

I don't normally patronize Hollywood but will see it anyway. There is no spoon...

Edit: Changed date of release. Not everyone got to see it in 2012.

The Matrix isn't a movie, it's a religion.
I remember the exact moment when Neo opens his real eyes, in the pod. I said "Oh, ils l'ont fait".

And let's not forget The Animatrix (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Animatrix)... especially The Second Renaissance, the scary one.

The Matrix isn't a movie, it's a religion.

There were a lot of religious overtones to the movie. Neo=One, Trinity, Agent Smith kills Neo and he is resurrected as The One. I believe there are more but that's what I remember.

That scene in Matrix Reloaded where they are sword fighting on top of a moving semi set the bar for wall-to-wall Highway mayhem for me and is my favorite part of all 3 movies.

I saw a youtube video where they put forth the theory that Agent Smith was actually The One that was pretty interesting.

I was blown away by the Matrix series and have watched the films many times. Good to see it rebooted like this.

Agreed, the Matrix trilogy was the most prolific series I've ever seen, complete with all the victories and pitfalls of humanity, the struggle between good and evil, the yin and yang. It was way more than just a movie...there were many hidden lessons contained therein.

Just MHO.
