And then the rest of our rights will follow.

Random question, but have you read Fahrenheit 451?


Yes, when I was in high school or middle school, don't remember which.

- Compact florescent bulbs (replaced by LED which will be replaced by something better)
- Smartphones (gone in 10 years)
- Condoms (pretty obvious how useless these are)

- Desktop computers (as they are today)
- Cigarette smoking (sad, I know)

- Paper money (all physical currency -- paper, coin)

- Cheap oil (40 years max)
- Privacy (nobody wants it anyway)

- Relativity (obvious)

- Carpet (useless as it is)
- Centralized Utilities (replaced by in-home energy sources)

- Humility (gone already I fear)

As it is right now, it seems like our intelligence is slowly disappearing.

Lets just say that the third world war will be for control over Internet, but it wont involve countries as much as it will involve Companies and the regular fellow such as myself or perhaps you.

Conspiracy I know :p. Wouldn't surprise me none the less.

Good music is slowly drifting away lol.
Our privacy...
I'd say things like newspapers, magazines, etc.
HMV (Oh I went there)
We're getting more intelligent, but at the same time, stupider.
War, hopefully ^_^

not in our lifetimes. but the Earth will disappear.


Nope, earth cannot disappear.. For one object to disappear every particle in the "earth" must cease to exist... But it will probably freeze or get burnt whole by the sun in some 5 billion years.. I say it might freeze because when the sun becomes a red giant, it will lose some of its gravitational pull and by some luck the earth might get free from its orbit and thus of its destruction.. but then again we will be in an eternal ice age xD

*unless you are talking about some theory's that are not that well known, because of the small chance that they actually are true(Almost only assumptions)*


I would say that... Justin Bieber will disappear at some point.. (Not revealing some evil kidnapping plot here..) xD Laptops will be upgraded to be able to have a quantum processor... PS3, Xbox & Nintendo will die out after my invention is made xD

If the destruction of books were like that, I would probably do what Guy Montag did. lol

Your posting is interesting to me because it illustrates just how intelligent we are by always seeking to expand our knowledge of the physical universe, yet how ignorant we can be, in not seeing the value of privacy.

Oh, and why carpet? I’ll miss it.

Books might be gone. I'm not sure, though. People (including myself) know there is no greater feeling than flipping through pages of a book as opposed to scrolling to the next page on a tablet. But I definitely know the newspaper will be gone here in a bit and I'm mostly glad (besides the loss of jobs. That isn't too great.) But there isn't any point to have them anymore. I look up all of my news on the internet and it's much better imo.
