Turn It Off [Fuck You Friday]

September 7th, 2012 by

From Uncle Internet Jesus Warren Ellis comes this blast of Canada's worst problem Chip Zdarsky on this Fuck You Friday:

AND WE SHALL ALL BE DUST

Thank you, Chip.

No reason.

I see no reason to fight when we can stand around and talk, really.

Where'd the future go?

January 1st, 2011 by

It is 2011 now.

Going from 1999 to 2000 was jarring enough, but now we are firmly in The Future.

Now, where'd The Future go?

The Future. I want a hovery vehicle, like The Fantastic Four. Something hovery.

Here's what Uncle Internet Jesus Warren Ellis had to say near this subject:

You are never going into space.
You will never own a jet pack.
Your car will never fly.
HIV will not be cured in your lifetime.
Cancer will not be cured in your lifetime.
The common cold will not be cured in your lifetime.
Don't these things bother you?

Suicide is the third biggest killer of teenagers in the United States.
In 1999 more people in America died from suicide than from homicide.
Do you think about this?

As anyone who ever read MyDeathSpace.com for any period of time know, the leading cause of death in America is automobile accident. This is generally interpolated into a number placed under the heading "accidental death." When the operation of cars is the leading cause of loss of life I'm not entirely sure how it comes under the term "accidental death." It wasn't a fucking accident, it was done by someone with a car. It's 2007 and we don't know how to operate cars without killing people. It's not a fucking accident if it was caused by someone getting into a one-ton metal bullet that cannot be operated with complete control at all times.

In Europe in 2004, 13000 kids – persons under the age of fourteen -- died due to poor water. It’s 2007 and the society does not yet understand how to operate water.

Are you thinking about this now?

People keep asking me what DOKTOR SLEEPLESS is about. This is what it's about.

Someone stole your future. Don't you ever wonder who?

The lesson in this wondering, I believe, is to make your own future. What would that look like to you?

Make your own future.
