"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I've watched sea beams glittering in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time. Like tears... in rain." Such is the lament of Roy Batty at the end of Blade Runner. In a parallel and very real way, due to the allocation of scarce economic resources... your statement is correct. In fact, you will be hard-pressed to find any links from 2004 Fchat that still work.
