Self driving flying car. Happy now? Davidy²²[talk] 10:01, 9 March 2013 (UTC)

I think the title text is more of a reference to other things we expected to have by the 21st century: androids and jetpacks. 02:47, 6 May 2013 (UTC)

I think we're missing an important feature of this comic. And that is that Megan is not wearing a shirt. Discuss. 14:10, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

So would this particular strip be considered nsfw? :P Kirdneh (talk) 04:39, 25 January 2015 (UTC)
I agree that this is important for the comic, and should be included in the explanation. Will fix this. --Kynde (talk) 16:13, 30 July 2016 (UTC)

Since mobile/cell phones use part of the radio spectrum, they are patently two-way in that they send and receive data, and since smart-watches exist (the long-awaited Apple Watch made its debut in March 2015), I'd say that prophecy came true, and we just never properly realised it until now.

But that was after this comic was released so not relevant for the comic. But could be mentioned of course.--Kynde (talk) 16:13, 30 July 2016 (UTC)

It's sort of like how 3D printers are just very primitive version of replicators from Star Trek... -Pennpenn 03:20, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

Back to the Future II DID predict video calls, though... Greyson (talk) 05:09, 22 October 2015 (UTC)

And BttF is also referenced later when he asks where is my hoverboard... --Kynde (talk) 16:13, 30 July 2016 (UTC)
