13 Reasons Our Future May Suck
Well, life is not that bad given you have almost everything. But are we satisfied? Too much is going in the field of technology to make our lives simpler and better. But is it the real fact? Are we succumbing to the crushing force of our own inventions?
We here at Good Vibes are taking a humorous look into the future and possibly conjure some thoughts on our living.
Here are 13 reasons we think our future may suck
Hyper Speed Flights
Hyper speed flights will eliminate jet lag – and with it your excuse of that sublime afternoon naps by the hotel pool.
When your buddy tells you another story about an epic night with a staggeringly beautiful woman, you’ll never know whether he’s conveniently omitting the fact he was wearing a virtual reality headset at the time.
I Love You
Men used to say “I love you” by mowing the lawn or cleaning the garage or changing spent light bulbs – chores made obsolete by replicas. Which means men will actually have to say “I love you.” Damn.
Guys with Donald Trump haircuts disappear, along with our feelings of superiority toward them. Nobody explains a full head of hair with “I have good genes.” Now it’s “My dad bought me my own gene splicer back in 2073.”

Fitness trackers will note (and record, especially, if that is gifted by your spouse or your girlfriend) exactly when and where you slowed down to check out that hot woman and then stopped for that 5 000-calorie soft-serve waffle cone.
Jetpacks are cool. No arguments there. But we’re not looking forward to having our newsfeeds filled with headlines like “Another Dumbass Dies in Jetpack Selfie Accident.”
Thanks to self-driving cars, using a steering wheel while rooting through a bag for the last chip and holding a cool drink without spilling it is now a useless and kind of stupid skill.
Clever new dating app Cringe transmits your horrified reaction to her profile photo instantly and vice versa, bringing loneliness, alienation and despair to depths unmatched in human history.
Smart Garbage Cans
Sure, we liked our smart phones and smart TVs and smart thermostats. But smart garbage cans? That’s a thing now? Here, we’ll save you two hundred bucks. Take a look in the can. Is it full? Then empty it. Not full yet? Keep putting trash in the big hole on top.
You’ll think, I should call Mom this weekend. And your telepathic auto dial will be like, “Calling Mom.” And you’re all, “No, no, I didn’t mean… wait, cancel, cancel! That’s not what I – ” But she’s already picked up.
