When we were kids, we were promised many exciting things about the future. Most of these came from TV and in particular cartoons (like I said, we were kids!) but I still want them today:
Seriously Hollywood. Stop promising us that in the future, we’ll all be able to pop to Tesco with a jetpack on our backs. Even more recent films like Kick Ass show people flying about willy and indeed nilly. Bastards. I want my jetpack, because then I wouldn’t have to get the bus. (If you’ve ever gotten a bus in Bristol, you’ll understand)
“Traffic jams will be a thing of the past”
They’re not. I’m still late for work.
Perhaps a bit more realistic this one. In Clueless, Cher had an amazing closet that not only was in colour order and motorised (oh the organisation. I may have swooned) but had an Apple Mac connected to it that could pick a complete outfit for her.
Its 15 years later (dear lord we are OLD) and I’m still wondering why I don’t have, at least, the virtual wardrobe to pick out an outfit for me to wear.
Triple breasted women.
No ta Busted. Two are plenty (and in the case of the Wife, still too many)
I asked my favourite male blogger Tim for his list and he came up with
- A fax machine in every room
- Cars that run on rubbish
- Dehydrated pizza
I think he’s seen Back to the Future one too many times.
