No praise for digital technology today.

I saw a guy the other day that was using one of the earliest form of digital mnemonic devices.
He was a big tall guy, kind of goofy looking and oddly forgetful looking and he had the piece of string tied tightly around his right index finger. I couldn't stop stealing glances at it, his finger was swollen like a nasty german sausage on the verge of rupturing. I could easily imagine a ten foot radius of blood-spray if his icky-dermis failed and my queasiness was pleased to see the back of him as he hurried out of the metrocar, all the while staring worriedly at his own engorged finger.

What could he possibly have been thinking there and then, I wonder.

I'll never know.
