2010 is upon us and it is by far the most futuristic date we have ever had. 2000 was good because we got to say ‘thousand’ which was a nice change from ‘nineteen’. But we’ve had nine bloody years of it now and it’s a bit old hat. The very future itself has arrived and the year ahead is the fantastically science-fiction-sounding Twenty-Ten.
The film Blade Runner is set nine years from now. A little ambitious to be mining Mars by then maybe, but who knows what the clever clogs of the world will come with in the coming years. I’m looking forward to portable telephones that have some kind of additional calculator function.
So, goodbye 2009. You were a bit crap to be honest and I’m glad you’re going to die tonight, but here’s to you all the same. Let’s all be very proud of ourselves as we chalk another year off. Let’s drive our hover cars carefully, eat healthy pill food responsibly, and power all our homes via the electrical currents running through our brains. And don’t forget to vote for android rights!
The happiest possible new year to you all from everybody at Everyonedoesit.com.
