Dream Into Action

The four stages of technological progress –

Phase 1 – Origination and dissemination of idea, often through Science Fiction

Phase 2 – Ideas hrönired into reality engineered by Science!

Phase 3 – Refinement, mass production and Integration into lifestyle [Hat tip to Wdydfae]

Phase 4 – Ordinary everyday horseshit drama

And you thought "Friends" was bad with mere humans

All 4 stages neatly summed up

Bonus round for anyone who caught the title reference

The Apocalypse of Exuberant Hairstylings was narrowly avoided when the 1980s, in a surprise move, ended.

      There’s probably an anime out there somewhere which is just that. I’ll have to ask Allamagoosa.

  2. This MASSIVELY UNSAFE FOR WORK but hilarious College Humor video brought back to mind all those great robo threads of yore:
