    That baby is going to fall out the window! (Upper right)

    Those were the days.

    Now I’m curious what there is to be had at the “Svper Rob” store(maybe super robots?). (note the use of v instead of u, which links up with the classical way the faces are illustrated)

  5. Similar to the life lived by humans in WALL-E but more slender.

    I think the color sense of people in the year 2000 is pretty awful. Go see Cloud Atlas for a great look at 2177 Neo Seoul; it’s pretty great.

    And people wonder why we were so angry when the year 2000 arrived and it didn’t look all that different from the seventies, architecture-wise. #sigh

    Why does a monorail with windshields and windows have to be further contained in a pneumatic-esque tube? Is it pneumatic-turbine powered or some other pseudo technology?

    Isn’t this just the intro to Futurama?

    Wow. The Year 2000 looks really, really ugly.

    There, I said it.

    There’s something very Hieronymus Bosch-esque about this picture; some of it may be due to the presence of that disturbing yellow potato-shaped thing on the left side of the picture; it reminds me of a certain urban legend photograph allegedly showing a parasitic infection of the breast that I won’t link to.

    Dang.  I was hoping for an old Conan vid.  Guess that’s what I get for jumping from RSS.

  13. Yep says:

    Hmm. Yeah that’s the Ted Stevens future. A series of tubes.

    Screw the flying cars, why can’t I get decent speed “broadband” network service to my house inside city limits?

  15. Jim Casey says:

    Surreal, innit? Almost exactly what the year 2000 was like.

  16. Nash Rambler says:

    So, basically, we should take any predictions of the future and run them through the “suck” filter for a more accurate analysis.

  17. Culturedropout says:

    Wow.  Sort of looks like the bastard child of Fisher-Price and Habitrail…

    Ah, 2000! I remember those days! I LOVED my hover-recliner. 

  19. B E Pratt says:

     And note that smoking is still considered ‘cool’ in 2000!

    OK, Where is my floating bubble chair? I was promised a floating bubble chair!
