None. A lot of today's tech is yesterday's science fiction, our productivity has skyrocketed as a result, and we're still killing ourselves working ridiculous hours in a capitalist society. Even if I could, say, teleport instantly from my house to work, that would mean everybody else could, too, and we'd be forced to work longer hours to compete. Honestly, I'd rather have the relative peace and quiet of the 20-minute commute from my house in a rural community.

Sci-fi and fantasy worlds may sound cool and exciting, until you realize that, regardless of what reality we live in, we'd still have the same drat problems, just in a slightly different configuration. "Hey, we're flying through space at 5 times the speed of light! Oh poo poo, I'm late for my meeting with upper management, hope I don't get fired and ejected into the nearest star while they replace me with a harder-working clone."

edit: yes, I am great fun at parties, why do you ask?

yeah but can you put your dick in your phone yet
