Oh my God, the world’s going to end, we’re all going to die!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh, it’s going to fall. Radically. It’s going to get bad. That is clear...
Everyone drinks beer and eats pizza a couple of hours before a designated time and when zero lights another cigarette, the entire planet blows up.
LOL. Slate just discovered this. That’s what happens when you are part of a ruling class that is so invested in using fear of overpopulation and sustainability to enhance your power that you don’t notice when the big problem is demographic crash.
Of course, they will develop a socialist solution for demographic crash and spend years trying to force it down our throats.
I posted this same article last week, and about got my head ripped off.
Heavier-than-air flying machines are impossible.
In the year 2000, we'll all have flying cars. People will go on vacations in orbital space hotels. Computers will be so affordable that lots of people will be able to have one. They will fill a room, but the Fortran language will make them easy to program.
On the other hand, there is only a world market for about five computers.
We will bury you.

Another “journalist” apparently oblivious to the statistical data that there are actually more human beings on the planet pulling themselves OUT of poverty than at any other time in history.
Living conditions are already bleak for much of humanity.
90% of people are caused by accidents.
