I've seen the future, and it's badical

I recently watched Back to the Future II and I couldn't help but get excited about the changes that are slated to occur over the next few years. For those of you who haven't seen it in a while, a large part of the movie takes place in the year 2015 which apparently is going to be chock full of flying cars, hydrating pizza ovens, and ravenous holographic sharks.

Wait, now that I think about it these things will never be a reality. I say this because according to another movie I watched, we are all going to die in the year 2012 (well, everyone except John Cusack). Man I hope that's not true. Not because I hate John Cusack (although I do kind of hate John Cusack), but because I can't stand the thought of leaving this earth without getting my hands on a hoverboard. I've been looking forward to it for years!

Luckily, there is one futuristic luxury that you can enjoy now (if you can find one). It's called the "Coca-Cola Freestyle Beverage Machine," and while it doesn't feature an interactive video projection of Michael Jackson, it does offer 106 different beverage choices available at the push of a button. They have one of these at a Subway I go to and it is truly badical in every sense of the word. If you find one I dare you to order a "Caffeine-free Diet Raspberry Coke." I don't even want to think about what that tastes like.
