I’ve been waiting years for this moment. I truly have. And finally, the day is here. No longer are things like hoverboards and vacuum jackets little more than fictionalized tales. Driving on roadways? Psh, that’s so 1985… I, for one, am damn excited to fly home, cook up some instant Pizza Hut and watch the Chicago Cubs kick some Miami butt. That’s right, folks, the future depicted in that classic gem Back to the Future II has arrived. It is the future.
False reports swirled the Internet today (and yesterday) that July 5, 2010 marked the date Marty would find himself in “the future,” per the plotline outlined in that movie my dorky self cannot get enough of Back to the Future II. But alas, that information was incorrect — BTTF die hards and blogs were VERY quick to note that — and my heart broke ever so slightly.
But hey, this does mean someone better get their ass in gear and invent a hoverboard. Time is quickly ticking away. I simply do not wish to reach the real, genuine “future” in 2015 — Oct. 21, to be exact — and be denied the awesomeness that McFly and Doc Brown promised. That, indeed, would be quite a shame.
