I love modern conveniences. Here’s a cleverly designed train station that offers passenger boarding on two separate levels. In the above photograph, it appears many passengers disembarked on the sidewalk, where taxi cabs and other motorcars awaited.
I love the internet. Life has become so much better with it. The coolest stuff ever imagined can be easily found and delivered to your front door with only a few clicks. It’s so convenient!
Take for example this festive middle finger Christmas tree ornament. It would look great among the angels, chains of popcorn and holiday candles. I’m going to get one! It should be here in a few days, just in time to impress my dear mother-in-law!
I spotted dear Uncle Elmer out this weekend enjoying himself. The cool Autumn evening was perfect for a romp. He donned his flight jacket and bounded about as the full moon rose.
Yesterday a subway car rose through this downtown street like a sandworm from Dune. A young boy nearby remained fearless as the monstrous machinery emerged from its subterranean abode. This brave child, like the Emperor of Dune, might one day choose to become a formidable hybrid. Should this occur, he’ll resemble Thomas the Tank.
A man with bad hair became trapped in a large blue balloon. Depraved, sadistic tourists quickly gathered to gawk. Shame on them!
Thanks to recent amazing breakthroughs in genetic science, cloning, and advanced biological technology, it’s now considered probable that future petting zoos will include both the extinct Dodo bird and the legendary (and fictional) high plains Jackalope.
Whether DNA is used to reproduce long-extinct animals, or to create bizarre combinations of very different species, biotech promises to provide humanity with an enormous, limitless source of future amusement. Young children visiting petting zoos will encounter the whimsical and bizarre creatures once relegated to fantasy storybooks.
Imagine cuddling a cute, furry Jackalope (while carefully avoiding the horns), or laughing at the silly-looking Dodo.
Humankind’s endlessly amusing future will feature a mind-boggling variety of freakish wonders!
A thoughtful, well-respected anthropologist at University of California-Berkeley recently observed in a popular web magazine that Darth Vader and noted theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking have at least one thing in common. They resemble “brains in a vat”.
This provocative comparison has given rise to numerous conjectures about the possible relationship between the brilliant but semi-robotic Hawking and Luke Skywalker, the son of Anakin Skywalker (known to every true Star Wars fan as the sinister, semi-robotic Darth Vader, architect of the terrifying, planet-disintegrating Death Star.)
Stephen Hawking, the world’s foremost expert on merciless, matter-devouring black holes, devotes much of his profound mental energy to the study of objects that annihilate every planet in their path. Speaking with his unsettling sinister-sounding synthesized voice, Hawking instructs his select disciples on how the entire cosmos just might be wiped out. In fact, it’s quite possible that ruthless, utter destruction is inevitable. It’s all a matter of dark matter.
Darth Vader seemed to have similar dark thoughts.
Fortunately, Luke (and Leia) emerged surprisingly from nowhere to rebalance the Force. Is Hawking’s unknown offspring soon to emerge?
