Yep, it's finally here! Keep an eye out for a flying DeLorean.
Wednesday, Oct. 21, 2015, is the day to which Marty McFly (played by Michael J. Fox), Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) and his dog, Einstein ("Freddie," according to IMDB), traveled through time from 1985 in the movie Back to the Future Part II.
We children of the 1970s and 1980s have anticipated this day for 30 years. Now, though, 2015 is a bust.
Back to the Future II promised weather control, but the best we've mustered is climate change. It promised power shoelaces, bionic implants, hoverboards and Mr. Fusion. We have none of that. I'm looking at you, scientists and engineers. What the heck have you been doing for the past three decades?
I'm a little disappointed, too. But the whole internet thing is pretty cool.
