He's actually levitating a bit in the first panel.
Now that I live with my parents, I've come to realize just how many places/cities we've lived in. Holy shit, it was a lot. And only in the short span of 28 (28? WTHF?) years. I think I've lived in more places than most people I know.
I find it hard to believe that we've come so far in technology and everything else. Computers used to only be used for word processing, spreadsheets, a few cheap games, and that was it. The Internet was a place to research some information, chat with others, and post to message boards. Nowadays you can do almost anything via the Internet. Some houses are actually wired up and have wireless controllers that you can operate from your computer wherever you are. You can turn on the lights in certain rooms, turn on the TV, stereo, and a few other electrical gadgets.
Here's one thing that kind of freaked me out: A job I worked at back in 2001 was as the Parts Coordinator for the Maintenance crew at a distribution center for a major retailer. One of my duties was to turn on and off the HVAC units throughout the building as needed. Usually someone (mainly a shift supervisor) from a department would call me and say that it was too hot or cold in their department. I would then turn the AC or the heat on or off. It was all controlled by a single computer. I just opened up the HVAC grid, clicked on a section, clicked on a unit, then clicked on either "On" or "Off." I could do the same thing with most of the lights in the building. There were times I had to do it, mainly when we returned from a three-day weekend like Memorial Day or July 4th weekends.
I'm still waiting for the matter transporters we were promised, and the rocket packs. Flying cars, not so much. Rocket packs FTW.
Oh, well. At least we have footomobiles
, even though I don't think I'd ever use one. They just don't look safe.These
are some wacky predictions, although some have come somewhat true.
