In the Year 5150 (circa)

One of so many wonderful drawings from the book "Man after Man" by Dougal Dixon. Behold for yourself, here. Or, read the Wiki. To wit: A Scottish geologist wonders what man will evolve into over the many, many years to come. Pure speculation of course, but wow, is it wacky. If you're a fan of weird, morbid, art, like Edward Gorey, perhaps, you've got to check it out. Another photo:
This is all the height of lunacy, of course, since everyone knows Jesus will end the world this May 11th, so any future evolution - as if there were even such a thing! - has no chance to turn men into giant solar panel fatasses.
