Wait for the Future..

Yesterday I returned from a summer holiday to Madeira. The island was amazing and beautiful and the weather was great. It was one of the most relaxing holidays I've ever had.

And without internet connectivity (internet connections were of course available but I decided to stay away) I could properly relax and spend time doing only fun stuff like swimming, watching the beautiful scenery or reading books (I finished Richard Wiseman's '59 seconds', I'll make a post about that shortly).

So I have no idea what has happened while I've been away.

The only thing I noticed was a mention that the date to which Marty goes in 'Back to the Future 2' was July 6th 2010. Which was quite cool as we just recently passed that date, only without the flying cars.
The image below is taken from the movie and shows the dashboard where the target and current dates are displayed in the car.

Except the image is a photoshopped fake and the story is a hoax.
The actual date in the movie is October 21st 2015 (wikipedia link).

Oh well, guess we'll have to wait another 5 years to live in the future. Maybe we'll have flying cars by then. One can certainly dream...
