Virtual reality to replace reality by 2047

Scientists at Laughingstate University, Wisconsin, have today unveiled the results of a 3 year long study into the rapidly evolving world of Virtual Reality technology. The arrival of several devices into the market, including the popular Oculus Rift and Valve's HTC Vive, has created a serious amount of hubbub concerning the future of reality in general, with many analysts already suggesting that reality will be ditched very shortly. Laughingstate University Dean of Technology, Dr John Waters, however, disagrees with those reports.

"It's coming, that's for sure; but not for another thirty or so years. Reality certainly hasn't yet had its day."

Surveys undertaken by Dr Waters and his team have shown that most people are currently comfortable with the nature of reality, though some students canvassed who professed a love for quantum physics declared that reality was to humans what fish are to the color purple.

"Virtual Reality is getting better at making us rather less nauseous because of its use, but realistically we're not in a position where folk will happily ditch in their real lives in order to 'go virtual'. No, it'll take some really good porn devices before that becomes true, and we're expecting realistically modelled men and women robots to push 'the virtual' into everyday."

Is sex what everything is all about, we asked? We received no answer because it's not the done thing to start conversations during a strip poker session.

I'm convinced that articles like this are made just to rile people and wind them up. If I give you some money, will you go away? :(.
