namatad: At what point in the future does our society "disappear" from an archaeological point of view?

The Flintstones age actually came after the Jetson's.

They were a "modern" stone age family.

After the sprocket/cog corporate wars. The earth was left in ruins. No more flying cars, no more high rise apartments.

All Digital Media was, books, education texts. What remained was hard copy print films, books and LPs. Forgotten in the vaults of ground based libraries.

Using that media which did not require specialized players the ground dwellers rebuilt a society based on the 50's and 60's decades of America. LP/Film Movies/and hard copy books were the template to imitate cultures and styles.

Appliances were simulated using escaped bio engineered animals---and trained to preform specific tasks.

This is how that started: "I got a Kindle"

Ice Pirate: But, it's a type of wordplay that requires you to think for a moment longer than it takes to be one of the first four commenters.

Thinking? On MY internet. Not bloodly likely.

Especially not when I become rich with this perpetual motion engine I found on 4chan. All I need is a cat, some buttered toast, and string....
