Just had to pass this along:

They were right about scientific progress, that's for sure!

UPDATE:
OK, OK! I've been had...it's a hoax. So it's not true, but I still think it's pretty funny. And a good photoshop effort. Thanks to those who pointed out the hoax, but please...no more comments to that effect. :-)

PS - Anyone who claims that blogs aren't sufficiently fact-checked deserves to be on the receiving end of a post like this. ;-)

    Theory: It is used to steer the house, because in the future all homes are actually submarines. People were forced to lived underwater to avoid the radiation after the 4th world war.

  • I know that control panel very well.

    It's the three control panels panel of a nuclear powered ship.

    On the left, the "Steam Plant" controls (where I used to stand on the USS Skipjack)

    The other two are the Electric Controls, and the Reactor Controls.

    Fills me with confidence in our boys at sea, it does. :)
