"2001" vs. 2001

The future we were promised: Portable, flat TV sets, PicturePhones, routine space travel, orbiting particle beam weapons, hotels in space stations, a moon base, sentient computers, and a Space Fetus who saves humanity from self-destruction.

The future we got: a conspiracy of Muslim fundamentalist terrorists who bring down Western Civilization with box cutters.
