Monitormented

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: mon i tor men ted

Sentence: Give me the good old days, thought James, as he rocked in his Lazy Boy. The Cold War days when spies earned an honest living following people while remaining invisible themselves. The days when the hunt was part of the excitement of your job, relying on your own wits and instincts. Matching wits with other clever humans and assassinating them when needed. Nowadays, it was all electronic, electronic, electronic...satellites that could fly over the planet and take pictures so minute, you could see your street, house and color of the eyes in your face from outer space, in real time. Red light and CCTV cameras that could watch you anywhere out in public. Blackberries, cellphone cameras and any number of devices which got tinier every month, meant to keep you connected to someone, somewhere, everywhere. Yes, he thought, people today were monitormented. Thank God, I am retired from all that, he thought, even though we in the business invented these ideas. "Come along, Mr.Bond, the computer says you need to have your sponge bath, your 18 pills and your bowel movement", said the cheerful, matronly caregiver employed at SMERSH,the Sunset Maximum-Security Espionage Retirement Secret Home.

Etymology: Monitor (to watch, observe;keep tabs on; keep an eye on; keep under surveillance;a piece of electronic equipment that keeps track of the operation of a system continuously and warns of trouble; display consisting of a device that takes signals from a computer and displays them on a CRT screen)& Tormented (the act of harassing someone; extreme mental distress; a feeling of intense annoyance caused by being tormented)

If you think about it, Ian Fleming wrote the series after WW2 and in the fifties. They say he based the character part on himself and part on George Stevenson, the Canadian mastermind known as the Man Called Intrepid. If that was true, James was at his early pique of 30 years old in the early fifties, which would make him at least 89 years old in real life today, assuming he survived all the sanctions against him. All that Sodium Penthathol fended off Alzheimer's! - Nosila, 2009-02-27: 23:02:00
