    Not to mention my self-lacing shoes with glowing logo or self-drying clothing.

    Who can I write an angry letter to in an effort to ensure my future prosperity?

    While you're at it write a letter to Major League Baseball.

    They are also going to have to move Miami back to the American league if they are going to beat the Cubs in the World Series.

    Holobillboards are probably too much to ask for at the moment though.

    Settle down. It's not 2015 yet.

    I'm sure we'll have all those things by then.

    Give it TIME.

    I'm still mad that 1980 came and went, and I never got my jet pack, picture phone, or moving sidewalks in every major city that I was promised.

    Spielberg also has to get moving on a whole lot of Jaws sequels.

    C'mon man, a food rehydrator developed and brought to market in just two years?!?

    Plus fax machines in every room, including the closets. Cuz we all use fax machines for personal communication so often.

    Yeah. Fax machines in every room, but I could really use a fax machine in my car. The fax machine was invented in 1843, so we should have car fax machines by now.

    I like to think of the coming apocalyptic robot army as "liberators."

    I guess that gives new meaning to the phrase "Give me liberty or give me death." :D

    I've been rehydrating food in my mouth for last 53 years. Works like this: take bite of food, take sip of beverage, chew until food slips down your throat.


    Hoverboard scares me - trying to stop a boat is bad enough, stopping in mid-air doesn't seem doable.
