@ #3. I like these types of comics, but find it slightly troubling that they usually imply we, as a species, peaked around 1969



Yeah well, social institutions be damned! All that matters is technology.

ONWARD! TO TECHNOCRACY!!

I appreciate the Escher homage (you remember Art Appreciation from school, right?) and I am sympatico with the other 3, although the last one suggests a person who talks on a cell phone, surfs the Web for videos and background information about them, and drives a car, all at the same time.
