There are some sweet gems in there.
Any favorites? I have a million more, but thought the list was too long already.

  • Continuing the current trend: laptops will replace desktops, netbooks will replace laptops, tablets will replace netbooks, and punch-card mainframes will replace tablets.
  • Someone will add a third wheel to the Segway reducing the cost by 70% and making it considerably easier to produce
  • The internet will be replaced...

Someone will invent a snack food that both tastes good and isn't bad for you.

Well for me that already exists. Not a fan of fruit WhoWee?

Monetary, I see things getting worse.

Jobs, I see things getting worse.

Population, continuing exploding.

Weather, getting colder (a plus as far as I'm concerned).

Living costs, sky-rocketing.

Tropicana will drinkify snacks. However, what they never counted on, was that they would also snackify drinks!!!

The day that Obama was elected, I made a bet with somebody that the POTUS after Obama will be more stupid than Palin.

I still think I'm gonna win that one.

Have you seen the other two? :rofl:
#2: "I had developed the FIFTH MATTER. Solid. Liquid. Gas. Plamsa. And now, SLYRUP."

#3: "I had drinkified a snack, yes- but I had also snackified a drink. The result was a localized snackularity. And I was the very eye of the storm." (PA)

I really hope that dark matter doesn't turn out to be Slyrup.

Wasn't that the focus of a really bad Disney film circa 1979?

I have a rule - never trust anything out of a vending machine that isn't in a vac sealed package.

:rofl: I can't argue the point.

WhoWee: Smart... food poisoning is so miserable...
I'll take my fruit in fruit form, as fruit... from a purveyor of food... and fruits.

Barring that, I'll drink juice before I choke down SLYRUP. :tongue:

Arizona has stopped paying for most transplants for medicaid patients. I predict that by 2020 more than 30 other states will do the same.

I hate what AZ is doing, but is it in fact MOST transplants? I was under the impression that it was a small minority: liver, lung, and complete bone-marrow.

How long do you need to live in CA to qualify for their benefits? I heard a commentator say Berkley officials want to pay for sex change operations too - anyone familiar?

Not at all, sorry... CA politics changes so quickly I can't keep up.
