    In my future we were ALL supposed to have robot servants, flying cars, picture phones and moon colonies. All we get is picture phones, which aren’t the wonderful thing we thought they’d be.

    The meter is WAY OFF in the last line – too bad.

    so picture phones are a disappointment… robots would increase obesity because no one would have to do anything… flying cars… really?… people have a problem driving regular cars… as for moon colonies they would be a perfect target for terrorist wouldn’t they, which brings us back to the strip … accept the present, live for the moment.

    Sounds like you have had some experience at rearranging furniture.

    I think you missed the point — it isn’t so much live FOR the moment, but live IN the moment. Don’t be so morbid Chireef — the world is pushing us all in that direction and it takes courage to avoid the depression of that deception! Life has ALWAYS been full of challenges and people and things conspiring to make things difficult. It is how you overcome the difficulties and — oh I don’t know — find love maybe — that makes things get better.

    Bravo Jimmy — this strip is well done.

    I love Janis’ hair long. Beautiful sentiment.

    To me it reads like a limerick with extra words in the first two lines/panels.

    Jimmy is channeling Walt Kelly today. Very nice.

    See if you can find the movie “Just Imagine”….a sci-fi flick about a man who goes to sleep and wakes up 50 years later….what makes it interesting is it was filmed in 1930. Very interesting what they imagined 1980 would be like.

    Well put. Chireef sounds like a lonely and bitter old man.

    Pedant. Just enjoy the comic for what it is. Nobody appreciates your literary criticisms.
