BELGRAVIA — It’s sometimes worth pushing your chair back and having a moment to think.
What do you make of this picture (above)?
It’s from this week’s media and is a photo of the Argentina football team coming home.
I love it for all that is obvious about it. And also all that is incredibly weird about it. If you left this planet even 10 years ago you would have no idea what all the little blue lights are.
But to us, it seems quite normal.
Why is that?
Could it be that the future has arrived?
Monday there was a great hoax for anoraks like us. It was said (and shown) that Monday was the day that Doc programmed into the clock in the car for in Back to the Future.
It’s a shame it’s not true. Like most good hoaxes it seems credible.
Maybe the future is here when have more toys than we know what to do with. And we’ve stopped waiting for the rocket cars.
