Well, actually, there is one exception: Blackdragon. Yes, I know, he bangs mingers from online, and apparently cucks himself in the process, but no one's perfect. At least he doesn't fucking despise technology like a retarded neanderthal!
So I give you his article on "Marriage 3.0":
A lot of it is abhorrent, I know. I despise his championing of open relationships, and many other things. However, read this and tell me it doesn't sound like something out of Blade Runner:
So rage and whine all you want, but THIS is the type of stuff that people interested in the future should be discussing. THIS is the type of stuff that's coming. Blade Runner is coming, not some fucking return to some ancient idyllic era. If you can't incorporate genetic engineering, cloning, sex robots, artificial wombs, and so on into your worldview, your future predictions will be worth JACK SHIT, and will be just as laughable to anyone with a brain as the future predictions of a certain someone that wakes up one day in his 40s and decides to worship some flying spaghetti monster.Blackdragon wrote:
As Scott Adams has said, children born 20 years from now won’t even understand this strange thing called “privacy” their parents used to have. If you fuck an 19 year-old girl, or jerk off four times a day, or cheat on your wife, or falsify one sentence on your resume, or regularly shave your balls, EVERYONE WILL KNOW.
- The death of privacy at least as we know it. This is a huge topic that I could write an entire book on, but suffice it to say that because of continuing technological growth, in a decade or two (or three) the concept of privacy as we understand it will be gone.
To us primitives in the year 2012, this sounds horrific. However the good news is it will be the greatest playing-field-leveler you’ve ever seen. YOU will know everything about everyone else too. Just imagine going out on an online first date with a gal and having every intimate detail about her life and history available in seconds on your cell phone, making it impossible for her to lie to you. Heh heh. Long-term monogamy and traditional divorce under such a system will essentially become impossible, since both of those things are built on deception and outward false fronts.
Get ready for the next decade or two. We’re all in for a wild ride.
Don't be that guy.
So let's keep this thread open to discuss and speculate on sci-fi developments in game and the impact they will have on our societies, relationships and sex lives.
