And the cow jumped over the moon.<quoted text> You remind me of my friends growing up. I use to talk about stuff in the future back then too. They use to laugh at me because I would tell them there would be a time when everyone would have their own phone that they could carry in their pocket. I told them about computers. Oh how they laughed. They laughed every time I told them about something new I had read. Well who's laughing now? Most but not all science fiction becomes science fact. As far as technology is concerned anyway.
I'll be dead and you'll be in the home before that technology becomes "truly important" beyond artery stents.
Fast is subjective eh? I'm still waiting for my flying car pal.
