Contrary to long held popular belief it seems today that children are not the future.
Man has longed to know the secrets of the future for as long as the idea of the future has existed. From Nostradamus to those ridiculous arseholes that essentially steal money from the mentally vulnerable members of society by feeding them vague descriptions of a tepid future.
The most commonly held view in all modern societies was that the children held the key to the future. That is, until today.
Prof. Richard Shaw revealed the shocking truth before a packed press conference. 'I and my students here at MIT are today able to dismiss the myth that children are the future, we can now say for sure that it is robots, scary, scary robots.
He could not say for sure just how scary these robots would be, when or in what way they would take over every aspect of our lives leaving us deformed shells of our former selves, licking the open wounds of our lost potential to keep our slave lives feeling worthwhile, but he did say it was definitely happening 'so get used to the idea that your kids aren't special, and they ultimately wont mean shit to anyone'
