You travel into the future to visit a law firm in the year 2384. What is the most remarkable thing you see?
(By the way, the illustration is a cartoon dating from 1922: “Cheer up! Let’s look forward to 2022”.)
A. No one knows how to operate the robot lawyers, so they’re used as coat racks.
B. Following the alien conquest of 2316, lawyers are now referred to as ‘non-aliens’.
C. Partners work remotely from their homes on Titan. Everyone else commutes.
D. Billable hours are now recorded telepathically. Yes, of course they’re still billing hours.
