From a friend in the UK
Barak Obama and Julia Gillard (Aussie PM) are shown a time machine which can see 100 years into the future.
They both decide to test it by asking a question each.
Barak goes first.
“What will the USA be like in 100 years time?”
The machine whirs and beeps and goes into action and gives him a printout, he reads it out "The country is in good hands under the new president, crime is non-existent, there is no conflict, the economy is healthy. There are no worries”
Julia thinks “It's not bad this time machine, I'll have a bit of that” so she asks:
“What will Australia be like in 100 years time?”
The machine whirs and beeps and goes into action, and she gets a printout. But she just stares at it.
“Come on Julia” says Barak, “What does it say”
“Buggered if I know! It's in Arabic!”
