The Future

Whether we like it or not, the future keeps on coming. Literally this sentence is becoming past as we type it. Can you believe that? We thought time was a flat circle but it just keeps on keepin' on, man.

It's a little bit less funny when we talk about drinking our own pee on purpose or colleges collapsing. The optimistic view is that if we identify problems early, maybe the future won't suck. Maybe we'll get one of those good futures, like Demolition Man. At least there's Taco Bell in that future.
