The world is changing, man

This is kind of amazing:

I don't know what to say about it. Microfilm will be obsolete in 10 years. And there aren't going to be any collectors out there, like there are for vinyl. We can tell our children stories about how we used to use film where the writing was really really tiny...

-Wait, what's film?
-You know, like in a camera.
-What? Cameras don't have film.
-Shut up. The writing was really tiny but it was there, and there was a lens and it blew up the figures and projected them on a screen.
-You mean like a computer screen?
-No, just a flat sheet of plastic.
-It sucked. Your eyes got tired after looking at it for an hour or so. And we had to walk two miles through the snow to get to school. Uphill. Both ways.
-That's stupid. Gimme some ice cream.

Screw it, I'm not having kids. Little ingrates.
