You questions are valid but only in the context of a survey of "Adults" in an certain age range; say 18-60. Some people are retired at 60, others have to work. Good questions for a survey. Take care /signed/ Joe

Alien huh? ALIENated?

We are aliens alright. We are undesireable aliens in this sick and hedonistic society that values digit heads more than human beings

Technology is making things worse and now with the nightmare that is Windows Vista computer use will soon become more difficult unless the world wises up and converts to Mac.

More than an alien, I feel like an endangered species. Life is increasingly frustrating. There are days when death looks pretty good because life in this society in these times is dismal.

Sadly, we have been reduced to a Community of Economic Units.
But perhaps this global frustration, will lead to a change?
