“Your great grand kids won’t have grainy photos of you. They’ll see you as the prick you were in glorious 4k video. They’ll see your stupid fucking digitally manipulated faces, with your daft fucking pout and Bambi ears, or whatever the fuck they are.”
We know nothing of the long dead in our own families, apart from anecdotes and the odd grainy picture.
Yes, your great grandfather looked smart in his army uniform, but how do you know he wasn’t a chronic bore, or a fucking booze addled weekend tranny?
We think we know the past but we don’t. We know history from old news reels. A history from the point of view of the victors. Winston Churchill is the epitome of the British stiff upper lip right? Remember that magnificent speech?
Yeah. Remember that. Let’s not talk about the millions of fucking Indians he starved to death. That would just make GCSE history a bit fucking morbid wouldn’t it?
Your great grand kids won’t have grainy photos of you. They’ll see you as the prick you were in glorious 4k video. They’ll see your stupid fucking digitally manipulated faces, with your daft fucking pout and Bambi ears, or whatever the fuck they are.
They’ll know you tried to impress the superficial acquaintances you regarded as friends with pictures of your fucking dinner in fancy restaurants.
They’ll know you bored every cunt with your gym updates, dietry intake and fucking mapped runs.
But most importantly they’ll know you were a shallow egocentric narcissistic cunt,who valued the acquisition of objects over the environment you lived in, and even your own loved ones.
If you wonder what it was like 100 years ago you have to do exactly that. Wonder. Imagine. Fill in the gaps.
But with YouTube, Facebook and Instagram, there’s millions of terabytes of data and it’s here to stay forever.
In 500 years people will know that America elected fucking Trump. Not from a page in a history book of zero substance. They’ll actually see the orange cunt and wonder what the fuck happened.
They’ll know how we dressed, what we ate, how we spoke and what we watched and listened to. Imagine that? Imagine watching YouTube clips of the fucking Tudors in history class. That’s a head fuck.
This could change our whole future as a species though. Think about it. If we’ve not blown ourselves to bits by then, for the first time in the history of mankind, we might actually learn from our mistakes.
Never again will someone like Trump be elected. No more wars, famines, or fucking crocs. This could be the next stage of evolution.
