It's amazing how far technology has advanced within less than 70 years.
@meanpies, I want to go back I time just so I can be a god among men with my phone.
@CriTiKa1, right? "Hi, I'm from the future. This small rectangle has more computing power than the world right now. I use it to look at pictures of cats."
@CriTiKa1, you would get mugged
@meanpies, it's amazing what discovery will leap technology. Like computers today were inconceivable, then the silicon chip came along and made computers both portable and affordable.
@Dephenistrator, you could always fool them and say your computer comes equipped with a gun... people back them were much more gullible...
@ITGeeneeus, Or just take a real modern gun with you. That would also work.
@meanpies, and porn.
@ITGeeneeus, or use a prank broken screen app
@meanpies, the only drawback is that you'd have no internet so you wouldn't be able to access about 75% of your phone.
@CriTiKa1, except without the satellites and support systems it'd be useless.
@RainbowDragon, booooo your realism is not fuuuummm
Modern Bootyologist predict that in the future, Twerking will provide grade nine Bootyquakes: in comparison to our current Twerk-level; which only surpasses 3.5 on the Richter scale!
@Bootyologist McSwag, Don't you mean the sphincter scale?
@Jolee Bindo, yo dawg, that's just nasty
All this advancement and I dedicate it all to porn...
@Ludicrous6, well, somebody has to do it...
I think about how epic the future is gonna be and it makes me sad I won't live to see it.
@PowerPickle, we have an epic future today bro
@PowerPickle, i don't think anyone will. I think within our lifetime our race will destroy itself. We're just moving too fast and the world is being killed by us, just 20 years ago we had way more forests and wildlife so i give our race another 40 years at best.
@Almighty Blastoise, that's why I'm moving to Antarctica
@Almighty Blastoise, you are giving our species too much credit, human kind has survived for many millenia and the earth exponentially longer
@PowerPickle, if we keep cutting funding and/or telling scientists what to study or only study things that make money then you won't really miss anything
@PowerPickle, cryonics. Just imagine once they unfreeze you what the world would look like. 3D porn with full effects in the palm of your hand ( ha ha) whenever wherever. Church bathroom, no problem.
@Almighty Blastoise, although some may call me paranoid, I have a pretty firm belief some country is going to do something really stupid within the next few decades, which will lead to retaliation and basically cause mutual assured destruction across the world. It's a scary thought and not a lot of people like to acknowledge it, but we now have enough nuclear weapons on this planet to completely destroy it several times over, and there is constant worldwide tension.
This is completely unrelated, but I have a question I'd like to pose to the community. I am legitimately interested in your opinions.
What would you choose, if you were given this choice: you must perform a truly evil act (specifics don't matter. Murder, rape, w/e. Capitol E evil). In exchange for this act your greatest wish will come true.
You do not commit the act of evil but your greatest wish will NEVER come true, in any way, no matter what you do.
@I Are Lebo, my wish is to be top commenter every time, all the time. I'd become Hitler mark II for that.
Just kidding, I wouldn't do anything evil even if it meant any of my wishes came true, because I'm genuinely a nice person. I might be half Canadian.
@I Are Lebo, yeah, I'd do it. Then one of my wishes could be to undo the bad caused by my evil ;D
@I Are Lebo, Is dismantling capitalism an Evil? If so, killing two birds with one stone on that one because it's also my greatest wish.
@I Are Lebo, so I could kill one person to bring an end to all human suffering? I'd seriously consider it.
@I Are Lebo, ok. I didn't clarify something. You don't get wishes. Your greatest desire. Your one true dream. Your ONE wish.
You can't undo the evil, because there's no possible way someone greatest desire is to undo their own evil.
@I Are Lebo, meaning if your greatest desire is to find true love, you either do something evil and regret it for the rest of your life, or you don't do the evil and regret the fact that you will never find true love for the rest of your life.
I don't have an answer. I'd probably do it simply because I'd rather regret doing something than regret not doing something.
@meanpies, you threatened me last week...
@Medal Delivery Boy, exam stress might've taken over me, sorry bb
@I Are Lebo, this reminds me of a movie where you press a button and become rich but someone dies and you don't know who. I could not do it, nor my brother. This movie prompted the debate between us and a friend. He said he would do it even if it meant us dying and was very serious. It was a bad day
@Dephenistrator, well, mine was a little bit more intense. If the punishment for not pushing the button is a return to the status quo, it's a different equation.
My one true desire, my dream, is something I would kill for. If I had to.
@I Are Lebo, i still would not kill. Unless it was like a serial killer or something. But that's practically a public service at that point and not really murder
You know these seem all like "whoa how did they get it so wrong" but really in 40 years from now well probably have fully functioning 3d holographich-like technology and near-speed or light travel, and I'm sure this will prove to be a gross understatement
And maybe yo mama will eventually only way 2 tons
Back then they'd never begin to contemplate the concept of a device the size of a bar of soap having more computing power than all of their computers combined, and that this device would revolutionize the way we poop.
Isn't it wired that I have a little rectangular machine in my hand capable of accessing the entirety of information known to mankind? But here I am looking at dank memes.
"Future" being a relevant term, they probably weren't wrong....
This is so accurate, my PS4 only weighs around 1500kg
Now I finally get the vacuum tube I've been looking for for 4 hours ...wait what was I gonna make with them?
Imma let it fly by the time of year when the sun goes on to my friends to be in a statement issued by the time of the best way to get the hang of it
Its only got 1tube now, youtube
