Long-Term Predictions

Things I think my grandkids will be astounded about when I tell them stories about the year 2012:

(1) That football was so immensely popular.

(2) That we didn't have personalized medicine.

(3) That we drove our own cars.

(4) That we loaded our groceries into our shopping carts, onto a conveyer belt, back into our shopping cart, into our car trunks, and finally into our kitchens.

Things that'll still be true by the time I become a grandparent:

(1) Things will still be wired.

(2) Big cities will still matter.

(3) Internal combustion engines and gas will still be a big part of how we get around.

(4) The US will still be the world's only superpower.
