The Awesome Future

I’ve seen the future, and it is groovy.
Future World

There are many predictions about the future, including widespread use of this 4.5kg portable phone that can be used ‘virtually anywhere’:

Did you hear that? Virtually anywhere!

But it’s obvious that the most important development in the future will be totally fucking awesome pants:

Apparently that big yellow console is “the control point for various domestic systems such as lighting, temperature regulation, data retrieval and home entertainments, for example the giant wall mounted television screen of the type currently under development”.

Awesome pants. And ringworlds in space:

I can’t wait for the future. It will be awesome.

  1. I’m just please that in the future garlic will grow to such a size we need chair sized garlic crushers like the one beside teh compact home control device. It’s either a garlic crusher or a sex toy, which would make me fear the future.
    Or a toilet? In the lounge?

  2. Damn, I want my money back. I’ve been wearing my groovy future-pants for years now, and all I’ve got is ringworm, not ringworlds.

    But I do have a phone that can be used virtually everywhere. Everywhere except the toilet bowl, it turned out. Splash.

    (Btw, am I right in thinking that book was a *cough* school prize for some sad bastard? Like maybe me? Cue vivid memories of trying to choose the least lame book from a table of lame books bought on sale or given away by some local bookshop…)
