Not wearing champagne colored jumpsuits with cranberry, lime, baby blue, and
orange turtlenecks

Not flying to work in a personal jet thing

Not living in saucer shaped buildings like the Space Needle

Typing questions for answer by a network of small computers instead of
receiving holographic projections from The Tabernacle via a crystal ring

Bubble memory and fluidics

Driving a cross between a truck and a station wagon instead of something
more like a Delorean

David Lynch's Dune

Lack of replicators and transporters, especially ones that bring sex objects
to you before you Go Red

The Patriot Act

Wiseblood is STILL not released on DVD

Cheap thrill, peanut butter on bread baked until it begins to brown.
