    Cavemen were before the Vikings.

    Cavemen were before rational (I think, therefore I am) philosophy, yet the comment maker waxes philosophically.

    You can’t put Descartes before the Norse.

    What did the first horse hitched to a wagon think? Horses may have had a similar discussion.

    I always figured that genre would be funnier if it were called “Science Friction”… and then I look at that wheel with no provision for any kind of bearing…

    Actually this is the first artist inducted by the Science Fiction Hall of Fame. Kelly Freas was the second.

    I can see this really happening. Makes you wonder just what all we look at today and say that will never happen and some day it does. I would have never thought this whole virus mess could happen either but here we are.

    There are caveman drawings of flying saucers. Out in the desert of Peru there are 100’s of giant drawings you have to see from above to appreciate. They were drawn between 600bc and 200bc. One in particular is a very accurate drawing of a dude in a spacesuit. Go figure.

    Boots? Are they wearing boots? Surely somebody figured out pants before they figured out boots.

    Reminds me of the great Rita Rudner. She said that she reads recipe books like science fiction. When she finished she says, “That’s never going to happen.”

    Oddly enough , I think he did this one already, back in the 90s. I only remember because I had a clipping of it on my desk in high school.

    This concept is absolutely valid! Sci-fi got us some of our coolest inventions. I.e., Arthur C. Clarke’s satellites.
