We’re living in the future, and I have proof. My well-placed time-capsules propelled us into the existence we currently maintain. I knew they’d be good for something one day. I’ll take one bacon as compensation.
Topics of the moment, so you know:
- The legal and social implications of sex with robots (see below)
- Drone deliveries of online purchases.
- Self-driving cars.
- Electric Cars.
- Wireless Energy.
- Stem-cell research to cure diseases and increase longevity.
- Robots actually doing robot things (and human things, if you get my drift)
- We’re seriously considering colonizing Mars.
There’s always going to be a feeling of “the future” what’s next to change our ideals of life. What’s going to be the Golden Ticket that will propel us into the future. Is it going to be pharmaceuticals, (which I spelled correctly on turn 1, by the way) unmanned vehicles, sustainable energy… You’re going to be around to see more of these innovations than I. It’s an exciting time to be alive, buddy-boy.
I was born too soon. There is a galaxy yet to be explored. I will not be able to take part in this venture. There are innovations I cannot begin to imagine that will take control of our lives. It can be great, but it can also be devastating. You’ll be in charge of making those decisions when I can no longer.
Socrates Dispenses Some Knowledge on our Highly-Advanced Asses.
There’s a lot of shit, buddy. Immeasurable (which I did not spell correctly the first time, I blame whiskey) amounts of bullshit that we have to traverse. It is not misspent on your, or my, generation:
The children now love luxury; they have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise. Children are now tyrants, not the servants of their households. They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross their legs, and tyrannize their teachers. Socrates (469–399 B.C.)
We also stick our faces into smartphones, neglect personal relationships, and spread hatred through
anonymity (misspelled) throughout the internet. We have some issues to deal with. But one thing remains true: We Live in the Future, Son!
We’ve Made It. Now What?
We circumvented the dark ages. We eclipsed the era of internet. We have connection, communication. We can imagine more than any generation before us. It’s inspiring. We are the future. I am the future; and most importantly, you, who will survive us all, is the future’s future. (grammatically correct since inception, boom)
Let’s focus less on trivial day-to-day bullshit and see the bigger picture, fella. We can accomplish great things as a society. It starts today.
Also, you’re shitty-sick, as usual. Why don’t you just get healthy already? I’m ready for some Lego’s.
Cause it’s gonna be the future soon
And I won’t always be this way
When the things that make me weak and strange get engineered away
It’s gonna be the future soon
I’ve never seen it quite so clear
And when my heart is breaking I can close my eyes and it’s already here
