Didn't people think 50 years ago, heck, 100 years ago, we'd all be flying in airplanes? I can't help wonder if this will be true in 50 years.. There's a video game for the computer (I love video games) called Civizilation 4. It is basically a very complex history lesson, and you actually play god and control human civilization from stone age to space age! :!!) Unfortunately, I have a windows '98, and my mom has a XP (With no graphics card) so I cant play it. Also, it is apparently having tons of problems crashing. Oh well. I highly doubt its possible to actually imagine the future, here are some wrong predictions: 1899 "Everything that can be invented has been invented." - falsely attributed to Charles H. Duell, director of the US Patent Office. This is curiously redolent of the epigram by Sir Max Beerbohm 'Anything that is worth doing has been done frequently; things hitherto undone should be given, I suspect, a wide berth' 1943 "I think there is a world market for maybe five computers." - Falsely attributed to Thomas Watson, chairman of IBM 1955 "Television will never be a medium of entertainment" (David Sarnoff, the General Manager of RCA corporation) 1977 "There is no reason anyone would want a computer in their home." - Ken Olson, founder and president of Digital Equipment Corporation 1985 "(by 1985) Machines will be capable of doing any work Man can do." - Herbert Simon, US Nobel laureate http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of_the_future_in_forecasts In 2050, I will be 62. I wonder if medicine will have advanced significantly by then? Hmm, more importantly, I wonder if we'll travel in space ships. Won't that be a problem though? I was thinking about it last night. Considering teenage automobile accidents is the #1 cause of death for adolescents, wouldnt flying be more dangerous? Especially harder to teach..
