    I have a dream. (and MAN was it wierd!)

    Vision of a parallel universe, perhaps? I have had dreams like that. I once had a dream about having a girlfriend whose name I couldn't remember in the dream. She wasn't happy with me.
  6. I was watching a drone racing competition on TV and decided it had a place in my science fiction society. After all, people in the future will need entertainment like we do today. And it looks futuristic, especially with all the trappings. Despite movies like Rollerball and Running Man, I don't see a lot of ultraviolent sports in my future society, although combat sports will still be around. Maybe robot combat will be a popular alternative, as will virtual reality combat, like the old BattleTech Centers in the 1990s. Laser tag is still around, even though it's past it's heyday. Of course, there's more to entertainment than sports. For those interested in the performing arts, here are a few ideas. How do people entertain themselves in your science fiction campaign?

    Futuristic Sports & Entertainment

    Economics, perhaps. Legality, probably not. Don't get me wrong. I would love to have a lightsaber too, but I doubt they'll be around soon, if ever. But this misses the point of the thread. My question in the last video I posted was whether interactive holograms would be a possible form of entertainment in the future.

    A Thread for Random Videos

    The last few clips were actually filmed in 1914. Who knows how many of those people made it through the first year?

    Today's Dumb Criminal Story ...

    "See? It's all in my dash cam!" Note: I originally read the story in my local paper, so there's another source besides the Daily Mail for this story.

    Why would a badger want part of a 500 year old castle? He's reclaiming it on behalf of Mr. Toad, of course!

    The cranky thread

    I have those too. Slowly graduating from weeks to months.

    Futuristic Sports & Entertainment

    I doubt lightsabers would be a reality anytime soon. Sure, they're cool, but they're not really practical.

    A Thread for Random Musings

    I read an online reference to The Hobbit when I realized that "Misty Mountains" would make a great name for a porn star.
