PostSubject: "...In the next hundred years"   Thu Jul 24, 2008 8:28 am

Here's an article that appeared in the December, 1900 issue of Ladies Home Journal. It speculates about what life will be like in the year 2001...

I wonder if there are any of these "In the next hundred years" kind of articles that have been written recently . . . . . And, if there have. . . . How hilarious they'll be to those living 100 years from now..........If anyone's still around on earth.

Well, I will be the first to make a prediction: 100 years from now, I certainly won't be here! :Hahaha:

Funny you say that. I was reading an article earlier this week about people trying to digitally copy their DNA so that they can be cloned in the future.

As for my prediction for 3008... we will probably be nearing the end to a terraforming project with Mars... meaning colonization of planets outside Earth will soon be at hand.

OK, you made your prediction for 1000 years from now, but what about the year 2108??? :haha:

Did I ever tell you guys that I'm really bad at math?

I don't think I have to anymore.

You know what they say, Jon. There are three kinds of people in the world - those who are good at math, and those who aren't.

Rob! :Hahaha:

That was really a great read. I read most of it yesterday but didn't get a chance to comment. Interesting stuff! They were pretty much dead on with the photos being 'telegraphed', and the 'ready-made' food purchases', including the invention of the dishwasher! (Which may, I must say, be the greatest invention ever Applause). Oh, why oh why couldn't the prophesy about 'how children will be taught' have come true! A FREE university education to everyone! Oh, that would come in handy right about now in our family! help

I missed this part the first time around:

'A man or woman unable to walk 10 miles at a strecth will be regarded as a weakling.' Hmmm. I think I'd better start training! Whistle

I found it amazing how accurate most of the intel was. Eerie actually. Not all was correct, but the majority was if you think about it. Starting at paragraph two;

I believe those Nations are in NATO

3

True (except for the athletics)

4

2/3 accurate

5

A/C

6

Partially true

7

TV Dinners

8

USDA food handling codes

9

Mostly true. Few use a coal stove, even if coal operates the electric plants.

10

Mostly true

11

100% true

12

nah


The accuracy is very eerie

I don't think I read this when it was posted. It was very interesting. Some of the things they didn't have to wait nearly 100 years for. It's a shame the pneumatic tube thing didn't catch on. HeeHee
