Take 30 seconds and join me for a quick activity:

Look up from the stream of information being supplied to you in realtime from people all around the world, which is probably being displayed on a high resolution, touch screen, handheld computer.

Pause the music that you're pulling from your highspeed internet connection, which more likely than not is coming from the very air around you.

Stop the movie that you haven't seen in years but were able to find and play in a matter of seconds at the touch of a button.

Take a moment to turn away from the video chat you're having with someone who may be hundreds of miles away.

Now consider that none of these things seem the slightest bit out of the ordinary. In fact, you're more likely to complain about minor imperfections in these systems than you are to find anything remarkable about them.

Once you've let that sink in, repeat after me:

"I live in the FUTURE!"

Okay, you may now go back to your boringly incredible lives.

I'll admit to living in the future, when I come home and my robot butler has cleaned the apartment while I was out riding my hoverboard.
