Back to the future – 21st century


“Your report, Doc?”

Marty shook his head, and held his hands together behind his back. “The family sat in a room staring at a box. Everyday, in their spare time, they stared at the box. They never played any games, they never interacted, they only stared at the box. When they weren’t sharing the same box, they unfolded their own smaller white boxes and looked at those while they pressed all these tiny buttons really quickly with their fingers. They also had even smaller black boxes in their pockets, which they checked compulsively.”

“So what can we deduce from your visit to the twenty-first century?”

“That it is the least social generation in the history of humanity.”

– Thomas M. Watt
