Things wouldn’t just jump straight to hoverboards. We’d have all kinds of other things first long before hoverboards were perfected, presuming they even ever could be.

I don’t think most people I saw talking about this were fooled. Most of them were saying: “I wonder if this is fake,” but in a way that suggested they knew it really was and just hoped otherwise.

We knew. At least, I hope we knew. We just wanted to believe otherwise.
