But fear not! TEF FUTAR has arrived in the Baker-Coleman household in the shape of new television and Blu-Ray devices, which replace a "big back" TV of uncertain vintage that took about 70% of the floor space in our house, and a DVD system which had enough wiring to fill the other 30%.
What's so great about this news that hasn't already been experienced by tens of thousands of households all over the UK? Consider this recent update I posted on Facebook:
We are living in TEH FUTAR with our brand new HD widescreen television, brand new Blu Ray player, all connected to the internet through our brand new 50MB router. So we spent the evening watching Thundercats cartoons.
With so much going on in the world at the moment, the most important thing in my life is this:
"Why did Lion-O grow into an adult and the other two kid-cats didn't?"
"The female Thundercat's special power is just fewer clothes, isn't it?"
"Mumm-Ra's really shit, isn't he?"
But fair play to the People's Republic of China. With the events from Bladerunner only four years into the future, they are doing their level best to pump the atmosphere full of smog to at least make that one prediction come true.
|I've seen things you people wouldn't believe.|
Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion.
I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate.
All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.
Time to die.
