compiled here are stills from the gizmos of the twenty-first century. these gizmos were meant to aid the everday life of the average citizen. that remains to be determined. they have been useful for twenty-second century historians in understanding the daily life of the individual across all class stratifications. included in this volume are real stills from real gizmos from real moments in time. appended to the end of this volume are real documents that the city of new york created for the justification of the implementation of a no-redevelopment policy in the wake of mounting data supporting the argument of the insurmountable change associated with climate change. this volume chronicles the unforseen, unplanned, or disregarded consequences after the implementation of the policy.
