The 25th Century as Envisioned by Glen A. Larson in 1978 (Buck Rogers)

We were watching the 1970’s Buck Rogers TV show, and noticed a couple of weird things about the 25th Century:

First, CapiTaLizAtiOn is rAndoM. Almost every sign is printed in a computerized font with randomly capitalized words (just as annoying then as it is when people do it now).

Second, all female military uniforms include spiky heels and short skirts.

Third, Society is controlled by computers that look like talking hockey pucks, who are super intelligent, but never designed mobile bodies for themselves. They have to be carried everywhere, usually by ambiquads, little robots with annoying voices. “Bedebedebede, Oh Boy!”

Oh, and don’t forget those high collars. Because one thing they’ll have in abundance is starch!

I weep for the future.
