In the news this week, time travel was invented. The time travellers went ahead 30 years in time, to see how much the modern American mindset would change in a generation. They were shocked and disappoined to learn that pretty much nothing happened.
"Everyone still thinks and acts like it's the 1970's," said one traveller. "At first, I thought we accidentally went backwards in time. But no, it just turns out that nobody has made any intellectual progress in a long time."
The trip to 2043 went well, until the time travellers logged on to the Internet and saw a list of the past 100 Tweets their older selves posted. They quickly went back to today and destroyed the time machine.
