I Remembered Another One

In 1998 I suggested to my family that there should be headphones which had a tiny microphone attached to the outside, recorded the background noise around you, and transmitted into your ear whatever soundwave was necessary to cancel out that background noise.

They laughed at me.

Who's laughing now, eh? And laughing very loudly because you've all got your noise-excluding headphones on and can't hear him?

You know there's a term for what you are - you are a Futurist.


And having read the article, I think you are an Imaginative Futurist.

I am truly one of those. I think.

Although, surely a futurist would have know not to bother turning up to play a cricket match this morning. In the rain.
