Kick-the-Can

This is probably the most heartrending of The Twilight Zone series.  The Sunnyvale Rest Home for the Aged (today, software engineers over 40) is filled with old people waiting to die, until one of them becomes convinced that playing kids' games will make them youthful again.

What makes this episode so amazing is that today, we know that staying active, both physically and mentally is among the best ways to delay the worst aspects of aging especially senility.  That's one reason that I look forward to resuming teaching.
