The laundry man? What the heck is that?
10. My 401K
Music? no way, thats dumb.
I doubt whether music will disappear.
“The laundry man? What the heck is that?”
I be the laundry man in this house. With two kids we have to have a laundry man and a laundry woman.
Most brick and mortar stores will disappear particularly multi-purpose stores like sears and walmart. A few will survive where the real estate is cheap but even those will feature a lot of online ordering stations for later delivery.
At least not as long as Bluegrass is around.
Books have been around forever and will probably still be around in the future.
Observe any person, whatever their age, and you’ll see that music is a part of them. If music is extinct, it’s because we’re extinct.
Oh, and allow me to add: the steering wheel.
I hope one of them is Obama!
I’m keeping my rocking chair and my banjo too.
2. Can do without.
3. Parrot will use plastic bags.
5. A what?
6. Music will live forever on iTunes.
they’re talking about NEW music. Haven’t you noticed how hard it is to find new music that’s worth a shit?
Common sense and decency did not make the list as they are already dead!
Listen to Alabama Shakes. They came out of a rock n roll time warp.
Disagree with tv. no one is content with watching superbowl on itty bitty screen. i thinl the movie theatre may go though.
Watches; most people just use their cells.
Music existed long before there was an industry dedicated to crushing it, and will continue to exist after that industry dies. Given YouTube and social networking, it may actually be easier to reach an new audience these days.
Music and televisoin...well, goood riddance. I have had enough of the $hit they call music and the same old tired tv shows on different channels that I have seen at least a hundred times. Good, now my husband will let go of cable TV.
The bijou in our little town is now a small dinner theater for Broadway show re-creations.... with local talent. They put on pretty good musical productions and drama.
But that won't last either.
Folks will become cocooned in their homes even more than they are now.
Obama said I could keep my doctor.
Pictures, music, newspapers, television....
These things are temperal. People need to think about eternity.
Interesting list and I enjoyed reading through the 130+ posts by the Freepers discussing many already-extinct technologies.
Post Office is unionized, govt backed.
It will be around longer than the cockroach and house fly.
Television will continue to prosper on live sports if nothing else.
Privacy is definitely gone. We didn’t realize that the breakthrough “big brother” advert for Apple in 1984 portended exactly the opposite of what was expected.
Computer monitors can be large and full HD these days.
I still have a (legacy) “digital” land line....
Oh! Then let's add "how to write meaningful English" to the list.
Not bad. Any other suggestions?
We may well be obsolete. Think about it. As computers become smarter and smarter robots will be more able to fly aircraft, handle automobiles, control traffic, etc. Powerful computers have already displaced many humans from their jobs....project that forward in time. Without planning on our part, the future may be ugly as computers and robots try to dispose of us, their creators, controllers.
Have you axed him about that?
Please don’t tell me you believed him.
“listen to Alabama Shakes...”
Amen Brother..there will always be a few who get it right...
Funny how this says privacy will be gone without condemning for that the very things on this list it so lauds. Writing checks is more private than magnetic strips, just as real cash is more private than all. Using some kind of Internet for saving files is definitely a privacy/corruption problem, and so on. Anything involving networked electrons is a threat to privacy. That includes your e-books.
Nevermind it’s easier to flip through a real book to find something fast than swipe-swipe-swipe. And land lines are great when cells stop working, and they just fit better. Unless you’re hooked to the new FO, which doesn’t work when power is out.
It’s ridiculous to say music will die.
Or muslim. Music is haram in islam. Islam promises that those who listen to music on Judgement day will have molten lead poured into their ears.
There is so much great music being made every day that I don’t have time to discover and listen to it. Unfortunately, we won’t hear any of it on the radio. Certainly, music CDs will be obsolete ten years from now.
There’s some decent new music on youtube
11. The United States
I promise this nation won’t survive another Obama term. The deck is stacked against us.
Liberalism: to be replaced by fasciastic socialism.

Who searches by swiping? Enter a search term and search a thousand pages in a second. I’ve been a lover of books (the physical objects) all my life, but in recent years have totally gone over to ebooks. Virtually all the classics (and many non-classics) are available in electronic form for free.
Though not as good for books that have large diagrams, for reading most kinds of texts ebook readers are much better. They are light, easy to hold, and you can adjust the text size and font to suit you. I consider the ebook reader one of the greatest inventions of the last half century.
Boy ain’t that the truth!! Oh. Except for this fairly recent song..... :)
I’m trying to downsize my place and am taking bags of books to the library for their book sale. I refuse to buy any more hard copy books. DVD’s are another story.
Wow. That is really satanic. Paul tells Christians to speak to each other in spiritual song, and I’ve noticed that many times when God is speaking in the Old Testament it is in verse. Can’t wait to hear the music!
Which may be why music today is so awful. It is a reflection of the soul. I listen to country and classical, and sing in the morning. No more classic hymns on the radio anymore. Today’s kids won’t know the words to Amazing Grace.
Watches; most people just use their cells.”
Not only watches but alarm clocks. Although I have about 30 stored in a bag in my jewelry box and haven’t worn one for at least 10 years, my youngest grandson and all his friends wear them. Might be because this group of parents has decided that kids don’t need cell phones.
