I just had a conversation with myself from 1985. I told him about the internet. I said “In the future, there will be this thing called the internet. Also, your buddy Reagan will still have many of his friends in office, like Dick Cheney and Paul Wolfowitz.”
1985 me: Wow, that sounds great! What’s this internet thing like?
Now me: Well, you can download wallpapers for your phone, and there are community sites for dogs!
1985 me: I don’t understand what all that means, but obviously, if that’s the kind of stuff they’re talking about then, world peace and hunger must have been solved long ago, huh?
now me: Umm.
