Back to the future day, a disillusion

In the 1980’s sci-fi classic, Back To The Future, the duo Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) and Dr. Emmett Brown (Christopher Lloyd) travel through time in a modified DeLorean car. They have to go into the future to save Marty’s son. Their former home town, which they visit nearly three decades in the future, has changed a lot. Flying cars, holograms, robot waiters, auto-drying jackets, and auto-lacing shoes are just some of the new everyday possessions.

Their future is our today, Wednesday October 21, 2015! What a disillusion… We’re still stuck with the relentless traffic at 4:15, the hover board is not an everyday staple, and we become completely soaked when caught in the rain. Regardless, happy Back to the Future Day!
