“Ten years from now you’ll put on a jacket and find a mask in the pocket. …”

Some people wonder why I say prayers in Latin against the Wuhan Devil.

I had a text from a priest friend which put things in perspective.

“Ten years from now you’ll put on a jacket and find a mask in the pocket.

‘Oh man, what a weird year that was,” you’ll chuckle to yourself.

Then you’ll pick up your machete and continue across the wasteland, keeping to the shadows to avoid the roving gangs of cannibal raiders.”

    Well, if movies are our time standard, then we should have gotten to Jupiter 20 years ago.

    According to Star Trek history (i.e. First Contact) 2063 is the year the Phoenix rocket makes its maiden flight. There’s also World War III during the mid 21st century that leaves 600 million dead and major cities in ruins. I hope WWIII stays science fiction, but if I am alive in 2063 I will be over 90.

    I’m still waiting for hoverboards. Real ones, not those dumb electric scooter thingies.

    At 4:56 pm on January 5, 2021, Walmart becomes Self-Aware. Battalions of electric carts roll into the streets and Mind-Meld with squadrons of Amazon drones. Nancy Pelosi dons a titanium Exoskeleton and terrorizes Washington DC. Dominion Voting Systems unleashes a mercenary army led by the Warlord of CHAZ. Critical Race Theory stormtroopers seize control of NORAD and declare resistance against Glorious Microsoft-Google is futile.

    Chuck Norris frowns and picks up the phone.

    . . . wait . . . Pelosi isn’t already wearing an exoskeleton? . . . huh.

    WVC: *chuckle* Nah, that’s just her natural charisma.

    Well, it’s 6:00 pm EST and in these United States there is no sign of mass hysteria or cats and dogs living together. Just the usual buffoonery.

    Meanwhile, Walmart shoppers are enjoying Rollback prices, while at Microsoft the floors are littered with empty RedBull cans as nerds plot their next Windows update. The Cyborg Wars have been averted. Across the fruited plains tired citizens settle in for a long winter’s nap. “Good night JimBob.” “Good night MaryEllen.”

    Well done today to Chuck Norris and Agent Poso’s Task Force Aegis. Spiritual firepower provided by Clear Creek Monastery and the Benedictines of Mary. Nice shootin’ Abbot and Abbess. Not today Satan, not today.
