It is time to admit the obvious. We have failed. It’s the year 2008 and we’re still waiting for the future to arrive.
What the hell, people? Where did we go wrong? Wasn’t the future supposed to be, like, a thousand times cooler than this? How is it that our biggest concerns in today’s society are gas prices and doing daily chores?
How is it that we were able to go all the way to the MOON in 1969, but today the best that a robot servant can do is vacuum floors or clean gutters.
What about flying cross country? Today’s choices are virtually identical to what was available in the ’50s, only with more cavity searches (which we don’t even have robots to do for us). That doesn’t sound very futuristic.
Maybe we have wasted too much time on the whole flying cars thing. Granted, the idea is cool, but who really wants the skies to be filled with the same idiots that occupy today’s roadways? Perhaps we should focus our efforts on less suicidal technological advances.
Listen, people. We really need to get on with this future thing. Levitating bullet trains circling the globe, robot servants, cities in the skies and under the ocean and on other planets, realistic virtual reality… Let’s do this thing. Seriously.
