I posted this on my tumblr this morning but figured I'd get a better response over here.   Plus it's been ages since I've posted here, and the white space of the compose window is throwing up a writer's block right now…

More things promised to us “in the future” that haven’t showed up (yet):

  • Flying cars
  • The Thunderdome
  • Daily depilatory cream (i.e. Nair for beards w/ no side effects)
  • Hoverboards
  • Toilets/bathrooms that clean themselves
  • Soylent Green
  • An end to disease, ignorance, and poverty
  • Replicants
  • Big Brother
  • Holographic advertisements
  • Multipasses
  • Human-embedded computers (w/ brain interface)
  • Teleportation / matter transmission
  • Lunar / Mars Colonies

Others you’d like to add to the list?
