    This Is Not An Epic Story

    What I have to say is not nearly as epic or cool as LauraIsLovely's triliogy, but I figured I'd add my two cents anyway. I am such a nerd. I love technology and what we can do with it. I can't wait until I can just hop into a tube and get sucked up...

    This is what I get for growing up in the 20th

    century watching Star Trek and dreaming of how cool it would be in the 21st century when we'll have transporters and flying cars... I dig where technology is going... but I'd rather skip ahead to a cooler, higher-tech society.

    Yes I Would Rather Be Living In The Future As Well

    Being dead in the future holds absolutely no appeal for me. I just haven't figured out how to avoid it.

    Fear Not

    I Don't Care If It's 2 Mos. From Now

    I want to & hope to be out of this multitude of situations I'm going through. That's all I can say. Sick & tired of people here trying to DESTROY me, even if they're more successful than me, just because of my disability.

    In A Place Where We Do Not Suture

    wounds since we have a healing beam and things are not what they seem. I want my floating city and my robot kitty. I want a flying car and be able to reach a star. I assimilate into the future society. I will become a cyborg. I will give up mortality as my body does a reorg.
