How about we team up as the bad guys and cause mass destruction and havoc?

Love becomes an illusion that no one knows about anymore. Just some ancient emotion in the future.

Porn. We'll all have mail order prostitutes instead.

No better yet, ones we download into our brains and can choose to have them entertain us whenever we want.

Nothing will disappear, Law of conservation of mass. Matter cannot be created or destroyed. Science wins every time.

Fossil fuels has already been mentioned, but it's true.

Cords. Not entirely gone, mind you. But we won't have the mess of plugs that we currently have any time more than 2-3 devices are plugged in at one outlet. The technology for wireless electricity actually exists already. It's not widespread, but it'll happen. As for anything other than power, we already have Bluetooth. All we need to do is up the device limit from 8.

Normal glasses. Lasik and similar procedures will likely become cheaper and cheaper, as well as more and more advanced. Currently there are a number of conditions that can't be fixed by these, but I'm sure someone will come up with something before I die. It's likely there will still be older people using reading glasses, or thinking they're too old for lasik to be worth it, but other than that... just sunglasses and hipster glasses.

Cash. We're already pretty close to that level. Sure, it'll still be printed. Stores will still have to accept it. But I think it'll almost disappear from everyday use.

Note that all this only refers to the US/other developed countries. I figure most of the currently undeveloped world will be around where we are now when I die. And we'll still call them "under developed". Of course, fossil fuels will be depleted globally, so that will be gone elsewhere as well.

People getting so worried about getting cancer (even though EVERY-FUCKING-THING I DO I AM TOLD WILL GIVE ME CANCER).

Racism (or racism butthurt [people inventing racism] from overly sensitive people).

Apple (in the future we will be smart enough to realize they only make one product).

People hating on 'Murrica (when North Korea tries to nuke the world and we stop them).

MOE WILL DIE (MWHAHAHAHAHAHAHA [not gonna happen ]HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA).

And finally...

I WILL BE KING OF THE WORLD!

Edit:

I forgot to mention. Those Google Glass things? Yeah, that shit is gonna get BIG.

Ahaha, you see, what is the matter of an IDEA? An idea is just the firing of synapses. Just electricity. Which is energy. Which is NOT matter. See where I'm going with this?

There's a law of conservation of energy as well.

Wristwatches are going the way of the dodo already. I think watches are a good thing, a classy thing, but they will all but disappear (the same as cufflinks) when the next generation grows up. Either that, or phones will disappear and all personal electronics will be incorporated into the watch. In short, personal electronics will be consolidated into one device.

Wallets will become less common. With bank information, credit cards, contacts, etc. on one's phone, wallets themselves will fade from use.

Cigarettes will eventually be banned and in a generation or two, they will be novelties of a bygone era.

Desktop computers are going to go away for all but the most hardcore users. X-box, Apple and others have already attempted to make all-in-one home entertainment centers. In a few decades, people will buy operating systems for their homes rather than individual components.

Cd's & Dvds are going away. Cloud storage and licensing are the (unfortunate) way of the future.
