People Are Getting Hip to the Futurological Fraudsters (Also: Centaurs in Khakis)

h/t JimF!

Go to Jezebel for the plucked shaved moisturized centaur twink in Gap khakis, but stay for comments like this one:
Now, I grew up around futurists, and one thing growing up around futurists teaches you is to have a hair-trigger bullshit detector whenever you're anywhere near a futurist. If I don't see immediately testable predictions that map to both the futurist's theory and my own experience, I just file it away with the Long Boom and VR helmets.
PS: You know, this blog has really been Less Than since I stopped posting regular centaur soft core here...
