I'm not sure about futurama, but yes matrix is related, but only a bit. First, the setup is far more dense, brains only, second, humans know that they dont have the real thing, and they are also generally in control of things around. Visiting "The real thing" is however possible only for a few (the rich), as earth would be overpopulated otherwise. Its former oceans and most of the landmass are already filled up with the VR machine, so only a small fraction remains for to have fun in.

The main point where multiresistencies are created is animals. When we give them antibiotics in order to enable "storing" them even denser, we enlarge the contact between patogen and antibiotics by a huge factor.
Our greed for cheap meat has brought us to the point where we destroy our own hardly-won victories against illnesses. And, the current system unfortunately even rewards you if you apply your antibiotics for animals -- by giving you money.

FUCK BETA. IF YOUR USERS DONT LIKE YOUR DESCISIONS, THEN OVERTHINK THEM. EVEN WINDOWS 10 HAS A STARTMENU AGAIN. DICE YOU CAN DECIDE WHETHER YOU ARE WORSE THAN MS OR BETTER.
