Insofar as I have been alive for my entire past, I'm predicting it is better than the future.

A vote for The Future - at some point in it Lurker will die but at some point in the past he was born.

Life peaks when you are a baby having someone take care of everything for you and then goes downhill from there.

I think the future is better. We'll have hoverboards, but we'll still be able to build a Trebuchet for fun if we want.

We'll be able to build the future's most awesome weapon... the hover-trebuchet.

I was just thinking, you could stand sit in the trebuchet's sling with your hoverboard and get yourself launched as a kick start to hoverboarding.

I had forgotten about the Mythbusters jet pack.

I've been in that Trebuchet.

Takes a lot of walking in the hamster wheels to wind it up.
