This is really interesting, I'm a big futurist fan, the one thing that really bugs me about getting old is that I'm not going to live to see what happens.
I've lived long enough to see how much things change over time.
I can remember the second world war, and horse drawn vehicles on the street.
My grand father really lived in the old west, living in Kansas City when it was the rail head for the cattle drives.
Real cowboys drove the cattle there to meet up with the rail road and got drunk in his brothers saloon.
He was the first licensed auto mechanic in Ohio, and lived to see man go into space.
