  1. LOL I love the green hair and the brain plug. Good to know pockets will continue to be useful in the future. Until the aliens eat us. :)

  2. Wonderful! Everything was always better in the olden days.

  3. Bahahaha!

    Seriously, though, commercially vat-grown Soylent Green will never replace cannibalism. The texture's all wrong.

  4. Okay, you just dramatically brightened the Monday I was having. :) Though it's apparently Tuesday where your blog is hosted, which makes me even happier...

  5. What's really cool is my watercolor pencil skills improve in 2210 too!

    @Susan: I still haven't figured out what the blue hair guy keeps in his pockets. He just told me he needed them.

    @Matthew: I totally forgot about that movie. Man, we were supposed to have SQUID records in 1999!

    @JJ: LOL!

    @Iliadfan: Glad to be of service. I intentionally publish my posts on my Mon(/Wed/Fri) night to avoid confusion. Though it does mean I'm sleeping while you're all commenting.

  6. Hahaha! Love it! I think the 'debate' over ebooks is pointless. I don't like them, others love them, but it is ultimately just a matter of time before they invade everyone's lives like watches, television and computers.

    In fact, I predict that inside of a decade, you will find that some schools require kids to download textbooks onto ereaders. It will make economic sense, as ebooks cost literally nothing to produce, so they can be sold to parents really cheaply for their kids...and that will also reduce the school's expenditures on texts!

    i will someday get an ebook reader for when I travel. You can't deny the handiness of a tiny ebook with a hundred novels on it over a fat novel stuffed in your carry on.
