In the Year 2889

In the Year 2889 - Jules Verne

This is a short story that was originally attributed to Jules Verne but was in all likelihood written by his son Michel.

 

As a story, this is all over the place and serves as a mere collection of headlines of what inventions have been made by the year 2889 to make life easier. There is no plot, no twist, no development.

 

There is a moral, tho: You can event all you like, but death cannot be defeated and the year will still only have 365 days - 366 in a leap year.
