was said to be a statement from a computer guru in the 50s and is often used as an example of the risk of making precise statements about the future. I found a the quote belowsimilarily lacking in understanding of the situation in one of my old posts from 2007. I could not have had more than 100-150 Seikos at that time. 400 Seikos later, I am still waiting for the whisky and cigars (but the women seem less likely with each additional Seiko).
This is what I wrote and I am sure that a lot of you have thought the same thing. I can assure you that you are wrong.
"I really have no attainable watches left on my list, except a few 0-rated (meaning that they are expected to come up on ebay or Yahoo Japan less than once a year so it would just be pure chance finding one of those). I have also bought an extra watchbox for the last 50 watches so they do not have to be in a pile on my desk. Should I just retire and spend the rest of my watchbudget on whisky and cigars while wearing multiple watches and looking out on the magnificent herds of wildebeest passing on the savannah outside. I have also heard of this thing called women which might provide a distraction in times of boredom."
