If you ever enjoyed reading Asimov’s Foundation series, you’ll enjoy this short bit of story, it’s in a similar style. Head over to http://www.opencontent.org/future/ and read the excerpt there and the published chapter on the .pdf link. It’s a fictional (at the moment) accord of what could happen, from the author’s future-self perspective. The dates used might make you pause, try not to, continue through them.
Read through it, get the couple of laughs that are there…
…and then continue to this post.
… an OMGWTFBBQ! moment isn’t it?
