In the future, traditionalists will live in Victorian houses under glass domes

14 Aug

From an old magazine I own, scanned, and the accompanying text shifted over, under the illustration. I just find it amusing – and an oh-so-typical prog stereotype of us, even back then… Even we will succumb to domes over homes, but in our own fuddy-duddy way, doncha know.

Ya gotta laugh. 🙂

    I’m building a bristling mountaintop bunker.

    Exactly! As long as you can still breathe, though. 🙂

    How about going one step further with biodomes? Then we can have whole communities of sane people with the progs outside…

    But then again, the progs wouldn’t be happy with no one to boss around.

    LOL—let’s give the Zombies back to Rod Argent: he knew what to do with them!

    @ Eric: Ambrose Bierce once wrote a story, in which the sane people locked themselves inside asylums, away from the insane ones outside, who vastly outnumbered them; it was darkly amusing. 🙂

    Ambrose Bierce was a dark mo-fo, no?

    I want to live in a globe that periodically shakes violently for about 10 seconds, causing a fine sediment of white artificial snowflakes to dance through the air outside my windows. Is this possible?

    He was! Sad thing is, seems all too plausible a scenario today, innit?

    Well, sure; anything’s possible for God. So take it up with Him; put in your request, and maybe He’ll grant it. 😉
