Futurist Projection Scenario
“Are you sure you heard all of that, Watson? This is to be said in front of my graduating class and I don’t want a lackluster speech copied to my brains hard-drive.” I pronounced skeptically, a common recurrence since purchasing Watson; the supercomputer.
“Yes Mr.DeRemer, it’s how I was programmed. As usual, I edited the speech to get rid of constant stuttering.” It replied, unknowing of its blunt and offensive comment.
“Alright then Mr. Know-it-all, play it back from the top, and add the stuttering, it makes it more human-esque, less… mechanic.”
“As you wish, sir.”
Classmates, I would like to communicate to you as we did in high school instead of telekinetically. So acquaintances, friends, co-workers, family, and for those who have left, most of us have made it fifty years since hearing the last bell toll. I say most because we all surely mourn the death of the late Lex Dock who was in Taiwan introducing his new energy conserving water purification process when China silently bombed and took over Taiwan through nuclear weaponry. He will surely be missed and his efforts were sorely wasted. Mankato West Scarlets have always made impacts on the earth, but in 2012 we had no choice but to be driven, with doom seemingly looming around every corner. We as Scarlets have not traveled through time, but let time travel through us.
Speaking of time travel, we should all give a hand for Mikeal Buaer, who has made the impossible possible. Mikeal knew this was achievable by simply going greater speeds in his point of reference. Although our government has not yet gave clearance to change past events such as world wars or natural disasters, it has allowed great personal entertainment by allowing us to relive our most pleasurable memories.
Time machines could have be considered life saving devices also, but nowadays it would hardly be necessary since we are killed at 100 and have all the technology to preserve our life until we hit that mark. Speaking of lifesavers, remember all the diseases mankind had to put up with? Take Cancer for example. Lisa Revser was trying to find the cure for tiger malaria in Africa when she discovered that by changing one strand in her vaccine Lisa could create a vaccine for babies, no different than a tetanus shot, that has stopped a killing machine and the number one leader in total deaths. We as American’s have also made an effort as a whole to cut-back on heavy and fatty foods, while also making nutrients in pill form our primary intake method. With that being said, I still love a slice of pepperoni pizza every now and then as a luxury for myself to relive my days as a youth. Ahhh to think back to a time when food wasn’t so scarce… now I pass the agriculture skyscrapers every day on the way to work, they’re ominous really, just sitting alone with seventy stories of crops, though luckily we’ve long since given up on ethanol because the overgrowing of crops it required ruined our soil.
Ethanol’s failure wasn’t all credited to its poor performance, but also the impeccable timing of other successes around it. Our first major hurdle was the government’s official prohibition of all motor vehicles, proposed by Micheal Rupert of the newly founded ecological party. This became a disaster for obvious reasons because it left the world unable to adapt rapidly to having no transportation and therefore no mode of travel, even to get to work. I feel I can speak for everyone when I say that I didn’t think America would make it. Luckily the U.N. stepped in and forced a repeal on this act, while inadvertently putting an end to all independent governments. Cars in the Americas then became much like time-shares, they were readily available when they were needed but they also kept access numbers of cars off the road, which clearly made us less aggravated on the road. The rent-a-car banks effectiveness was increased ten-fold when we turned to solar powered, despite we all made fun of their looks in the first generation. Ill be the first to say I rejoiced when Cadillac introduced their deville solar model, giving class, luxury, and efficiency all in one neat package. I see that all of you have also taken advantage of the stylized solar cars as well, even if we have no choice in color.
When we really think about our cars foundation, it really symbolizes the unity of governments when you look at the actions that were in affect. After China’s takeover of Taiwan I was honestly worried that a world conquest would ensue. It’s awfully sad how our government attempted to hide the real events that happened that day …
