#1625: Substitutions 2

Substitutions 2

((This is like a flowchart. The first line has arrows pointing to all the subsequent lines.))

It’s 2016 - where’s my…

Flying car → They’re called “Helicopters”

Jetpack → Turns out people are huge wimps about crashing

Moon colony → No one has put up the cash

Self-driving car → Coming surprisingly soon

Floating sky city → Turns out cities are heavy

Hoverboard → This question is now ambiguous thanks to a new scooter thing (and will lead to an argument about the meaning of “hoverboard” which is way less interesting than either kind of hoverboard)

Robot butler → He was called “Jeeves” and he wasn’t that great
