Welcome to the Future.
Blade Runner was set in November 2019.  That's now.  So where's my flying car?  :p

Welcome to the Future.
So, tell me. What do you remember about your mother? Would say she was kind? You know the kind of mother who would spank you for getting into a fight with another child at school.

Is flipping a turtle on its back and watching it struggle a bannable offence on RPoL? Or just a retirable one?

But did you awake and wonder if you were but an electric sheep dreaming of being a man?

Aside from Blade Runner, I remember the old Cyberpunk 2020 RPG. Where are my implants, dammit?

I'm afraid Cyberpunk is being rescheduled to 2045, and then 2077.  So you still have a few years to wait.

BAH!  Knowing my luck they'll perfect immortality long before they perfect brain-in-box technology.

The flying cars were seized by the Bureau of Jet-pack Suppression.  So they could ride to work in style.

My oral surgeon put one in a few years ago.  I can tell you, they are not what you're expecting.  Lots of pain, and although the x rays look really cool they really don't do anything special.

Something medium, I think. Those lighter oils are only good enough to keep a metal owl flying.

Im still in with the theory that we are all living inside a simulation. Now if only I could hack into the source code - I could make myself young, rich and succesful!

At this point in life, it is my opinion that we should all trade away as much rich and successful as we possibly can just to cling to youth.

To borrow a saying I've heard many, many times (and am distressingly close to starting to use on a regular basis), "Youth is wasted on the young."

Which explains why the elderly are wasted on the way...

No, I'm not young at all. Why would you ask?
