SharkParty — ha ha yeah no.

SharkParty (User #135749) contributes to ha ha yeah no, a tumblr blog that examines sci-fi ideas that we may wish for, but shows us that, really, we wouldn't want them. For example, cloning yourself may sound like fun, but it's not all it's cracked up to be, especially when you find out that your clone is "the kind of mirror reflection of you that you needed to realize you are an intolerable asshole, creating a social divide between you and your clone that makes this whole process a total bummer." Same with telepathy, flying cars, first contact, food pills, and more. Each entry comes with a funny illustration. The site hasn't been updated in almost a year (much like the site you are currently viewing), but the pool of potential ideas to build up and knock down is endless. More, please!
