We’re Hoping To Get Picked Up By The Networks

He’s from the future/Of the human race/But somehow he’s/Still a big jerkface/He’s Xartom, The Man Of Tomorrow!

“Matthew, what’s that?”

“Jason, you won’t believe it. This is a HP A6720y AMD Phenom QuadCore 9550 6GB 640GB Desktop. It’s easily one of the most powerful computers we’ve ever sold. Hey, who’s that?”

“Oh, where are my manners? This is Xartom, The Man Of Tomorrow. He’s a time traveller from the future.”

What’s up, cro-mag. You talk so old fashioned. I can barely manage to understand you.

“Yeah, hi, I guess. They probably don’t have manners in the future. Anyway, Jason, check this out. I’m really excited. The HP A6720y AMD Phenom QuadCore 9550 6GB 640GB Desktop has a crazy amount of RAM. There’s SIX GIGS of DDR2 RAM in this thing! Six freakin’ gigs! And that’s not all, it expands up to sixteen! Boy, I bet the pre-installed Windows Vista will run great on this baby.”

“Matthew, that’s amazing! I bet the monitor currently for sale on sellout.woot would fit it perfectly. What a great find. You must be happy.”

Pffft. Where I come from our stoplights have sixteen gigs. Of course, we don’t call them stoplights. It’s just that my future brain is so powerful, I’m able to translate into your primitive grunts and whistles. Did you know that, in my future, no one knows anything about you? Because you’re so primitive?”

“Jason, where’d you find this guy?”

“I don’t know, he had this little box that got him past the guard. I figure I don’t get paid enough to kick people out. Hey, don’t worry about him, tell me more about the HP A6720y AMD Phenom QuadCore 9550 6GB 640GB Desktop.”

Yes, tell us more. I want to see your tiny brain squirm to assemble words. In my time there are more words you’ve never even heard about. Primitive.

“Okay, guy, I know you’re a guest and all, but you’re cruisin’ for a temporal brusin’. I just want to tell Jason about the extra features on the HP A6720y AMD Phenom QuadCore 9550 6GB 640GB Desktop in peace. Because, Jason, you’ve got to know about stuff like the 640 gig SATA hard drive that moves 3 gigs a second.”

In the future that’s nothing.

“Or the DVD+/-R/RW 16X 12X +/-DL LS 12X RAM SuperMulti SATA optical drive.”

In the future our children build those out of popsicle sticks at lunch.

“Or the 802.11b/g Wireless LAN card. Or the 10/100 Base-T networking interface. Or the 15-in-1 four slot memory card reader and six USB ports.”

In the future we transfer data through telepathy thanks to our Gibson implants. Your silly little computer does not impress me, primitive.

“Okay, that’s it!”

“Matthew, calm down, you don’t want to-”

“Oh, I do. Believe me, I do. Listen, Zardoz, I don’t care how many transistors are up your butt, I bet you wouldn’t last ten minutes in a real hockey game against me. I came in here to show my friend Jason how excited I was about the HP A6720y AMD Phenom QuadCore 9550 6GB 640GB Desktop, because it’s a pretty nice piece of technology. And you know what? I don’t care if you have better stuff than I do, because I like what I’ve got! I’m proud to have this HP A6720y AMD Phenom QuadCore 9550 6GB 640GB Desktop! And you know what else? Where I come from, people don’t come in to other people’s time periods and start insulting their things. How would you like it if I said you had an ugly jumpsuit?”

My… jumpsuit? Ugly? These feelings of embarassment… all so new…

“Yeah, well, maybe that’s how you make other people feel.”

Feel so… weak… unsuperior …Ex… excuse me.

“Matthew, that was rude!”

“Well, I don’t care! That guy was a huge jerkface and he deserved it. Oh, Jason, is that what the future is like? How could we end up that way? What wrong turn did we take as a species?”

Okay, I’m back. Back and feeling superior again. You primitives can’t overcome my genius.

“Hey, Xartom, Matthew wants to tell you something.”

“Yeah. I was raised better than that, Xartom. I want to say that I’m sor-”

Know where I just went?


Where I just went. In my time machine. Know where it was?

“Okay, Xartom, fine. Where did you go?”

Your mom’s house. Back when she was in college.


Yeah. Totally just scored with your mom.


Oh, yeah. Well, I gotta get back to the future. You enjoy your little HP A6720y AMD Phenom QuadCore 9550 6GB 640GB Desktop. I’ll be doing things you can’t even comprehend. Like I did your mom! Ha!

“That’s it. That’s the last straw.”

“Now, Matthew, don’t do anything rash.”

“Stuff it, Jason. Hey, Gary Numan, get over here. I’m gonna show you how we do it in Detroit.”

Ha ha! Ha! Ow! Ow! What are you doing! Ow! Violence is beneath our species! Ow! Real intellects battle with their wits! Ow! Ow! Not in the face! Not in the face!
