Nice, now prepare for storm of trolls > :D

 

Yeah, although the article itself is very nice, I do hope that this won't attract the gaggle of retards that SG quoted.

I hope Margaret Thatcher is reincarnated so I can have the liberty of kicking the shit out of her. Nah, JK, I'm not violent. Let her stay dead!

The best thing I like in the DailyMail article is this:

"Separate research at FutureTimeline.net..."

 

Yup, we are resarchers, working at FutureTimeline labs...

Well see I think that is what tipped me off to what they actually mean. The actual time line. not the forums. The time line is an actual list compiled of potential scientific and technological breakthroughs assigned to the future by best analysis of available data from people working toward those goals of their prerequisites.

 

on top of that we often cite sources for our posts here, but when I saw some of the things the timeline research supposedly said it seemed like this site was addended as a secondary source and the reference may have simply been about the first group of experts they consulted and some creative language use was used to suggest that all of experts were talking about cherry picked data points for alarmist topics.


Live content within small means. Seek elegance rather than luxury, Grace over fashion and wealth over riches.
Listen to clouds and mountains, children and sages. Act bravely, think boldly.
Await occasions, never make haste. Find wonder and awe, by experiencing the everyday.

I saw it and i almost made a thread about it myself. I didn't read the comments at the time though. People are just...ridiculous.

This is a bit of a double-edged sword. The site will get more traffic, but the quality of that new traffic will be debatable :p

The art of forgetting is inherent in human minds; the art of being forgotten  is the normal fate of knowing. We as futurists don't accept that. In the panels of the Universe, we alone will remain standing; remain unforgotten.

I'd rather sle*p with her instead, if you don't mind.

I'm not familiar with the Daily Mail, is it something analogous to the UK's FOX News?


I always imagined the future as a time of more reason, empathy, and peace, not less. It's time for a change.

A tunnel linking Europe to the USA? don't be so bloody stupid, far to many complications to prevent such a tunnel being made over that distance.

Didn't they predict in the 60s that by 1999 we would be living in outer space and travelling the far reaches of the galaxy; hence the TV show 'Space 1999?'
 
 

--------------------------------

People are so hostile to change and predictions of the future because in the past predictions were the opinion of an "expert" who just made stuff up.  No, we don't claim to be soothsayers but there are so many resources that show trends in technology, most of the things predicted on the timeline like artificial organs and bionic eyes, etc.  All that "fantastic" stuff is in its infancy today.  Give it 80 years and you will have sometime incredible.  It is a pessimistic thing to say by 2080 people will live practically immortally and with access to neural and physical augmentations, when we can do proof-of-concepts today.

 

The part of the future I look forward to the most is what I don't/can't see coming.  The applications of breakthroughs or these familiar trends in ways I would have never thought possible.

 

 

 

just wait after 30 years and this people will have to eat their words for saying that it is impossible.
