People have been predicting the technological miracles and scientific cure-alls (or kill-alls) for about a hundred years now, at least. A very few were right, most were wrong, and many were funny.
For entertainment, and a reminder to take predictions with at least a pinch of salt, Apathetic Lemming of the North presents:
A website, and a blog
- "Tales of Future Past," "...settle on your jetpack, hitch up your blaster, and tune in the videotron as we tour Future Past!"
- "Paleo-Future," A look into the future that never was."
- "Google as predicted in 1964"
- "Miracles You’ll See In The Next Fifty Years (Feb, 1950)"
