Well, maybe not the year 3000 but certainly by the 22nd Century. Earlier this week I read an article from the BBC which makes 20 predictions about the world a hundred years from now. Some are pretty awesome (telepathy! immortality! space elevators!), while others sound like plots of world domination hatched by bad Bond villains (controlling the weather?!). We’ll have medical nanobots (nanogenes?) that fix us up and stem the aging process. And California will no longer be part of the United States. I say let’s keep the Golden State and instead give up one of the Dakotas (you know which one). Or both the Carolinas.
Too bad none of us will live long enough to see it. Except Larry King. That guy’s gonna live forever.
