October 21st 2015: Marty McFly arrives in the future
On this day in 2015, Marty McFly and his friend Dr. Emmett ‘Doc’ Brown, arrive from the year 1985. Marty has travelled to the future in order to prevent his son from being arrested, but in the process accidentally allows his nemesis Biff Tannen to steal the DeLorean time machine. Tannen travels back to 1955 and gives his younger self a sport almanac, which alters history by allowing Tannen to become supremely wealthy. The year 2015 which Marty and Doc visit is a futuristic land of flying cars, hoverboards, bizarre fashion, and wearable tech - including self-drying clothes and self-tying laces. While many of these things remain fanciful, some of the technology Marty uses is not too far from reality.
We officially live in THE FUTURE!. but do live in the darkest timeline,
sad day for us. its funny because i always found that part of the scene,
of how doc pauses for a second when Marty ask him if they become
assholes, very interesting. the doc knew. THE DOC KNEW!!.
of course it goes without saying some of those platforms are powerful
tools capable positive change in society. but with great power comes
great assholery. humanity always had its assholes, social networks
simply made them more visible, maybe that’s good thing.
now give me those hydrating pizzas…on second though , no. a pizza
ready in seconds would unleash a obesity epidemic. some things are just
not meant for this world.
