It is the "wanting/fantasizing" that makes life fun. Getting your fantasy, (any fantasy) gets boring eventually unless you work to keep it interesting.OK , great post Gophert, I didn't have an ignore list. Your "luxuries make life boring." 10 /10 and still folk want more
I didn't mean it was the only thing. It is part of the fun. People of a certain age put way too much emphasis on "things" in general, Gen Z kids seem to understand the concept of "experiences" over things. I like that idea. Or, in the case of owning a certain old car, it creates a fun experience by generating a conversation about the car, the breakdown, the repair process or even trying to find the repair part.I think it's different for different people. I can't agree that wanting/fantasising makes life fun. For me it's the journey. I'm not really bothered what's at the end of it. Does that make me a dog?
Some maybe, but most have rooms full of 'stuff' they wanted but now dont do anything with.Gen Z kids seem to understand the concept of "experiences" over things.

I have seen those air cannons that shoot pumpkins 3/4 mile. Once friends & I were thinking about building 2 trebuchet to throw water balloons at each other. LOL, It would have been hilariously funny to throw water balloons across the lake at Dave fishing in his boat. But it might hurt to get hit by a water balloon from that distance.
I'm 57 years old. In the past guys like me worked hard and listened to our mentors. We had no internet forums to ask useless questions on. If we were given good advise we wrote it down. We used pen and paper.We can't have fun ALL the time; Sometimes learning or helping another can also be rewarding. The OP should bring some fun with him or teach us how it was in the past.
