A glimpse of the future


I read a very interesting post the other day over at Blancodeviosa's blog. I'm not sure if it's because of her post, too much coffee, or divine inspiration but I had a dream about the future. The year 3000 to be exact. I got a sneak peek at the future and I feel obligated to share it with all of you.

I've got to be careful about how I choose my words here because the last guy that proclaimed a 1000 years of prosperity wound up committing suicide inside a bunker in 1945. But it turns out that the log is still going strong in the year 3000. It seems that all though I never make a significant contribution to society in my life time, my great, great, great etc. grandson is responsible for re-inspiring the human race to go outside and fly kites, fish and breath fresh air. Sometime around 2789. Plus, the log is handed down from generation to generation. I read some really funny posts about coffee, posted by Queen Corkina in the year 2422.

Football is now a global sport by the year 3000. Anyone caught playing or having anything to do with Soccer is executed immediately. A perpetrator of a soccer crime is essentially punted off of the planet by Robotic replicas of Adam Vinateri. Every team in the WFL has two squads and there are two complete 16 game regular seasons. The Vikings, Cardinals, and Lyons still have not won a Super Bowl by the year 3000.

I didn't have much time or interest at looking into politics, economics, transportation, warfare or religion. However, there are still freaks of nature protesting about an impending apocalypse. I didn't have the heart to tell them that I was from the year 2007. Silly fools. I can tell you that pygmies pretty much control the planet. It seems that they made some serious technological advances in the latter half of the 21 century. They finally moved out of their grass huts. Good for them.

Television is a complete mind fuck (what ever that means) in the year 3000. That's all I'm really going to say about that... But NBC still shows re-runs of Star Trek and TJ Hooker, so it's all good. Gene Roddenberry's vision is still guiding the way. The future looks great, pot is finally legal but I'm still glad to back in my own time.

I'll bet that in the year 3000 that the Green Bay Packers have a clone of Brett Favre starting at qb. So they wouldn't have to through the ordeal of having anyone else play that position.

Lady K said...

Too funny that you posted this. A co-worker and I were just talking about what technology would be like in the future.

I'm still trying to get over the fact that pygmies pretty much rule the planet, though...

Happy Valentine's Day!

Earth will still exist in the year 3000??

Jay said...

Well the year 3000 sounds like an interesting place and time. I'm sure there are still 4,000 reruns of Law and Order being shown each day too?

Maybe all wars will be decided on the football field?

Pot will be legal but inhaling pot will not actually be made legal for another 20 years, but there will be a lot of winking citizens with blood shot eyes and Domino's stock will soar with a rash of late night ordering.

Thank God soccer is illegal and punishable by death. I tried to implement that in my home town, and well, they didn't take to the idea so kindly. Good thing the bullet barely grazed that school-boy...

I don't think we'll HAVE tv's in the year 3k, it'll be something else.

Blancodeviosa said...

karma lennon said...

That's hilarious. The year 3000 sounds pretty damn cool. ;)

Heidi the Hick said...

That dude that had a little visit at my mom's over new Year's said that French will be a dead language by the year 3000 because the ONLY people who speak it are in Quebec and France.

Idiot.

Pixie said...

Aunt Jackie said...

Steven Novak said...

"log is handed down"

You simply can't say that in a room full of...US! a-huh-huh!

And no Soccer? Please tell me what the year 3000 Soccer mom will be then??? I ask because although I hate soccer, there's something sexy about a woman getting out of a minivan with a bag full of snacks and juice boxes! :D

Alicia said...

Rockdog, you have a very warped vision of sexy.

Ms. Tuesday said...

What is all this blasphemous anti-soccer talk about?? You must have only visited the US in your future voyage... Im standing my ground... Soccer is a much better sport than futball... and I LIKE football!

ANyway enough of this... its Wednesday... WHATS THE SEX OF THE BABY????

Oh, and Happy Valentines Day Corky!

Sunshine said...

This is all well and good.....
What flavor is the baby?

Pud said...

Wow! So is all of this a build up to the fact that you knew what the baby was going to be all along?
