Man From The Future

I met a man from the future once. He seemed to think that he was better than me because I am from this primitive culture.

I asked him, “What’s so great about your culture?”

He said, “Our technological advances would blow your tiny mind. We can transfer our consciousness from vessel to vessel. This isn’t even the body I was born in.”

I said, “This isn’t the body I was born in either. I used to be quite a bit smaller.”

He rolled his eyes and said, “We have time travel. I’m a time traveler.”

I said, “I’m a time traveler, too. I’m traveling forward through time at a rate of one second per second. You came backwards. I’m 30 years-old, you haven’t been born yet. I win.”

He stopped talking to me after that. Ah, well. His loss.
