Came across this hilarious Weekly World News cover (the image is on Flickr, by bmindful).
The funny part is, for the first time Weekly World News may be onto something. For the longest time, I thought cybernetics was just about the coolest thing that could happen to humans. Who wouldn’t want super human strength, x-ray vision, etc etc? Then I read Snow Crash, which features a character who has his cybernetic-enhanced vision infected by 24/7 ads for roach spray.
Suddenly, having cybnetics didn’t seem so much fun anymore.
