Or is it more likely that by 2030 America -- cheap super duper super power status.

As you know Greg it's my dream to living a world -- I don't have to interact with people act all this is -- this is like perfection.
And they got these 3-D printers now that they talk about that.
It's going to be the most amazing thing ever but the -- this year yes absolutely but if they can if they can perfected to the point where it can create food.
I won't even have to talk to the delivery man -- -- high.
I didn't think I can go a year without talking to another person once I have my avatar and my three deeper -- the last 3-D credit we had.
-- While not yes -- your mind America bill by 2030 you'll be dead or at least fifteen years does that make you sad but some -- -- -- that.
I'll I don't know the question wasn't for you recently -- I'm talking to bill.
