What Took You So Long?

Futurama S11E10 All The Way Down - Leela, the Prof and Amy are at the conference table in the middle of which is his new entire simulated universe.

Sooo… as it was getting near the end of S11E10 of #Futurama (All The Way Down), I thought… they’re not, are they?

And, yep, they did. They copied one of the plot points from @gregeganSF@mathstodon.xyz #GregEgan’s #PermutationCity which came out in 1994.

So, my theory that #ScienceFiction moves from hardcore to mainstream in around thirty years is, once again, VINDICATED!

They’ll rue the day they expelled me from the academy, those CLAMS!
