They create a time machine but that pesky camera technology still eludes them.

I remember reading this...book? short story? many years ago.

The whole WWIII gave it away (well the entire thing gave it away). Even the craziest bastards in North Korea, China and the US don't want a nuclear war. We'll still have skirmishes, lots of invasions, lots of drone attacks but no one is actually going to start WWIII.

Yes! I vaguely remember that. Wasn't it a short story?

"Borders began to become meaningless and the people began to have a love and appreciation for life - one which would inspire them not to inflict any type of harm upon their neighbour."

It was pretty believable up until the end there.

So in 2021 you can shoot a movie with your average smartphone, but way down the line your cameras don't take better pictures than my 1985 Casio calculator?

Just to be fair. The guy did travel back to 1981. Some pimple faced teen in the Foto Mat booth did develop the film.

Anyone figure out what film the grainy photo is from?

I've taken better pictures with a pinhole camera.

I literally bought extra SLR/DSLR body caps and tiny drill bits, milled-down the body caps to within a millimeter's thickness with an endmill, then drilled the tiny pinhole.  There's no focusing, f/stop is something like f/500, but in bright light the images were recognizable and better than this guy's emerald city.

When random amateurs on Internet K-hole took better photos with shiatty Polaroids while high than this guy produces, that's saying something.

they would be white to reflect more heat out to space and help stop the heat bubble around cities...!!!

I thought this was one of the weirder predictions. Are they cloning Chris Pratts in the future, or is the guy's health regimen so good he's still around in 2118?
 
2021-09-25 12:15:56 PM  
The Future will look like a fuzzy cover from a 1970s SciFi paperback.

Why are they always fuzzy? Enhanced a little. I lack the CSI computing power.

I don't. Doomsday has been right around the corner for thousands of years, yet here we are. Bits of humanity has been doominated and societies have fallen, but we always make new ones.

Somebody should let him know we already have vehicles that fly.
They are really inefficient which is why we usually only use them for bulk transport long distances, or for cases when we really need to be in the air.

I went to the future and then back to the past. This happened in 1981.

Q: What happened in 1981, the future or the past?

A: Yes.

This guy's picture of the next 100 years includes:

1) Aliens will contact the human race in the mid-21st century.

2) There will be a third World War, but it will have the effect of ultimately making the world a better place.


It sounds to me that he's watched Star Trek: First Contact one time too many.

The modern version of "enhance" is to have a machine learning algorithm pop up a sharp image from its dataset which is a fairly close overall match to the blur in question. It looks good but there is no guarantee that the details are correct.

Let's just pretend I wrote NCIS. Abby makes everything better.

Both CSI and NCIS overused the mythical Enhance button. But I think we're getting off track.

Photos are blurry because he can't do the tech, the people who CAN do the tech invested in the Facebook, Amazon, Netflix and Google IPO and are drinking mojitos on a private island with their supermodel girlfriends.

Well, WW3 would ease off population pressures quite a bit. And nuclear winter should counteract some of the global warming effects.

I went to the past but couldn't explain how any of our modern stuff works. Then I went to future but I can't explain what I saw. Anyway, I got murdered on both ends.
