{:soso_e174:}My mom used to say "Life was like a laptop computer, you never know when it's gonna crash."

Born: on a sunny Saturday afternoon, you go to a digit shop and buy a new laptop, you bring the new babe home, systems up

Adolescence: you downloaded software after software, changed wallpapers, decorated your "still new" babe with all the trimmings

Love: you bought a new computer game, maybe an adventure game, or maybe strategic, anyhow, you got taken away by it and have kept playing it for 6 months

Sullenness: the laptop's one year old now, no longer called a "new babe", you got tired of playing the game, the keys aren't as nimble as they used to be, you uninstall the game, and reshuffle the recycle bin

Adulthood: the laptop's been set on a track firmly enough that it has grown with its firewall, resisting "unwelcomed" information and softwares, maybe malwares or virus, but also could be system upgraders or chic gadgets; its looks are obsolete and its system's no longer the fad

Seniority: the system's crawling at a snail's pace and new softwares simply can't get loaded into the system, even if you wished to; the laptop breaks down too often that you're just getting... a little impatient

Death: the notorious "screen of death" pops up one day and the computer simply slips into a state which we call "persistent vegetative state", and it sucks

Afterlife: you format all the hard disks in fear of getting your nude pics out on the web; the computer may be passed on to a waste picker, and recycled, but all memories lost forever

Well, transferring data from one hard drive to a new hard drive in a new computer is like transferring your mind to new body. That could represent immortality at some degree.

My Thinkpad is five years old now.
In these five years it has still never crashed a single time, still running smooth,
the keys that took several litres of beverages that left the case through integrated drainage
without any damage to the electronics are still more nimble than those of most other laptops in new condition. All those shocks from multiple falls to the floor have not left a scar on the shell or the harddisk.
High initial price it is, but try finding me a brand with lower tco.

As for me, I'm Young, I'm free, well educated, healthy, and my health is well covered.
I wouldn't mind aging like my Thinkpad, but I'm not sure if I really wanted to be immortal.
