Predict the Future.......


Happy Saturday everyone! For the first time in 2 weeks, I slept in!!! Yay!!

So, I'm sitting here, blog-reading, and I come across this "fill in the blank" from over at Sayre's. It's from the book, Diary of a Wimpy Kid Do-It-Yourself Book by Jeff Kinney. Steven and I sat here, obviously very easily amused, and rattled off some funny answers, so I thought I would steal this from Sayre to see what YOU PEOPLE would come up with. So, just for fun, answer these questions - and if you want to share, you can answer them in the comments!

PREDICT THE FUTURE

1. I officially predict that 20 years from now, cars will run on _________ instead of gasoline.

2. A cheeseburger will cost $_______.

3. Pets will have their own _________.

4. Underwear will be made out of ________.

5. ______________ will no longer exist.

6. A ______ named _________ _________ will be president.

7. There will be more _________ than people.

8. The annoying catch-phrase will be _______________________________________.

9. Aliens will visit our planet in the year __________ and make the following announcment:
_________________________________________________.

10. The number one thing that will get on old people's nerves 20 years from now will be:
_________________________________________________.


I'll post my answers later, so I don't influence you.

Have a great weekend!

Sayre - Pets will have their own cell phones...or at least collars like the dog in "Up!"

Scary, but probably true.

HoosierGirl — You had some excellent, interesting answers.

The "no Microsoft" comment is no "Apple slam." There are many non-Mac people who cannot respect many of Microsoft's business practices.

Yes, there could already be more iPods than people. I believe that might be true of trash as well.

I can use my large flat-panel TV to display my Mac. However, not simultaneously in a "window" while watching TV. Someday I suspect that will no longer be an issue.

Example: Go online and pay some bills during the commercials while watching Desperate Housewives.
