March 2, 2010
I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but the year is 2010. There was a time when people thought we’d have functioning space colonies on the moon by now. Or floating cars. Or maybe we’d be discovering big black monoliths on Jupiter.
So none of that happened.
But I think things have advanced sufficiently that some things should NEVER happen.
For example, why do we have gaps in cell phone coverage? It’s 2010! We should have coverage everywhere? Like in The Professional, when Gary Oldman says “Bring me everyone” and the other guy says “What do you mean “everyone?””
That’s how I feel about cell phone coverage. We should have cell phone coverage everywhere. What do I mean by “everywhere?”
I mean EVERYWHERE!
Also, THIS should simply never happen:
Rob S. sent me this picture this morning. It’s 2010. The horror, the horror.
