Our phones are still made out of metal. We know, haha.

Water still damages our phones. Water. The thing that's everywhere.

We use our phones to tell what time it is. AS IF TIME STILL EXISTS IN THE FUTURE LOLOLOL!

We can't even vote on our phones! We have to go to an actual building and do that in person.

We use "video chat," and it's never in 4K HD.

We stream movies on our phones and that's about it.

It's a miracle the future was even born. We date on our phones with pictures and text messages. We don't even use video yet!
