    This is relevant to the thread, so bear with me....

    Have any of you guys heard of the Clock of the Long Now? It is an incredibly ambitious project to build a mechanical clock that will keep time for 10,000 years. It will be the embodiment of deep time for people. It is being built now within a remote mountain in western Texas.

    For videos and details, see: http://longnow.org/clock/

    So to the point...

    If we were ever to embark upon such a project in Australia, something designed for contemplation of the deepness of time and of humanity's brief, wonderful existence in time, then Old Ted should be the mascot, sitting and waiting through eternity as the clock ticks and time moves forward down the eons.

    Old Ted will always be there, watching and waiting. In ten thousand years, maybe some new race will visit the site and gaze upon Ted in wonder. Who was Ted they will ask? A god of those ancient people? And who was Chip, the guardian of Ted? They may never know the answer but still they will gain some measure of enlightenment from the experience, and by the very question their lives will be richer. Legends will be woven around Old Ted and Chip. Maybe even new holy books shall be written.

    Long after we are all gone and forgotten, when even the dust of our brief corporeal existence has been scattered beyond the four corners of the Earth, Old Ted will remain as the silent witness and last memory of humanity.

    Stay strong Old Ted. Your burden does not go unappreciated.

    This thread has changed my life, and my life's goals.

    Someday I hope to lease Ted and take him on some adventures.

    Long live Ted!!!

    Baby you're a firework
    Come on let your colors burst
    Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
    You're gonna leave 'em all in awe-awe-awe"

    Boom, boom, boom
    Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
    It's always been inside of you, you, you
    And now it's time to let it through

    Cause baby you're a firework
    Come on show 'em what your worth
    Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
    As you shoot across the sky-y-y

    Baby you're a firework
    Come on slet your colors burst
    Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
    You're gonna leave 'em all in awe-awe-awe

    Boom, boom, boom
    Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
    Boom, boom, boom
    Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon

    Okay "Ted" lets get you back in the Covid -19 Lockdown with a Facemask and Social Distancing. Perhaps even in aged care facility in Victoria. We would love to have you visit.

    Cheers Markco2
