It's 2007 ...

Where is our Moon colony? Where is my jet pack? Where is my transporter beam? WHERE ARE MY BENEVOLENT MONKEY OVERLORDS?

I'm beginning to think that all the science fiction I read growing up was lying to me.

I just want Rosie, my computerized robot maid. Is that too much to ask?

Anyone who likes Rosie is the most ut.

Where are the flying cars?

robot maids, flying cars, moon colonies....I can suffer without. But that damn transporter beam is a real blow.

At least you didn't waste years of your life pretending to be a scientist because, thanks to a childhood of Bova and Asimov and Silverberg, you thought science would be all cool and sh!t.

I'm assuming you didn't, anyway.

I want my personal jet pack.

My theory is that the benevolent monkey overlords don't think we're ready for that stuff.

Oh no, they're waiting. They will pounce as soon as the monkey overlord we have now is driven out of office.
