Futurama Moments that Aged a Bit Too Well

The animated TV series Futurama only aired until 2013, but so many things that happened in it could be set in 2021. It only makes sense, because the show was set in the future and made jokes about how the world changed since the early 2000s. Yet many of those jokes were so precient that you might even believe it really was from the future. However, Futurama writers were just following bubbling trends to their ultimate, if ridiculous, conclusions. -via Digg

The early internet could be exhausting, though. ISPs that required an expensive long-distance call, and then the service would charge by the minute, interminable load times even without images, fonts that would tire your eyes, search engines that couldn't find anything... but I have to admit, it was magic. Then the World Wide Web came along, and it really was magic!

That's one way that I feel bad for young kids these days - they don't know how much better the internet was when it first started. Almost no ads, and no ads at all depending where you went. I mean, the internet is certainly better now in many ways, but there's something to be said about the simplicity of early internet. Chatrooms with no ads and no moderation (that's good or bad depending on your perspective), getting excited about loading jpgs very slowly, playing games like Duke3D and Quake online for the first time, etc.
