According To New Study, Equal Pay For Men And Women Will Happen…In A Century

A new report from the Chartered Management Institute reports that women will be paid the same as men by 2109.

By then, the Guardian says, we’ll probably all have robot servants, clean nuclear fusion, and interstellar travel. Rhinos, tigers, and polar bears will be extinct.

The average life expectancy for women will be 90, five years ahead of men. And they will finally make as much as men, 64 years after the Singularity, many years after the supposed rapture, and just in the nick of time before the real trouble begins two years later.

Okay, though. In all seriousness. Are we really going to live in a world where we, by all probabilities, have robots before we have equal pay?
