The Future is Now

Ten years from now this will sound like a guy in 1980 awkwardly describing the Internet, but here goes:

On our way out to see the Cave of the Mounds we stopped and ate at a McDonald's. No big deal, right?

Sure. Except the bathrooms (!) featured TV screens that were part of the mirrors. Not a separate built-in, or a TV screen that had a reflective surface. The images appeared to be floating in the mirror itself, Magic Mirror style. HGTV in the ladies room, ESPN in the men's.

I'm telling you, we could have had a flat tire at that point and scrapped the trip and it STILL would have been worth the time.

Wow!

Very cool, but rather sexist! I'd much rather watch ESPN. Does that mean I'd have to use the men's restroom? Oh well, wouldn't be the first time!
