    Since my last general discussion starter worked so well, here's another one I hope will be fun to take part in:

    What do you think the world will be like in 20 years? Before you answer, please no hard fact based predictions or predictions based on someone or something that everyone already knows, just your own ideas.

    Here's mine:

    I believe it will be business as usual for the most part, but with more toys to entertain us. Most people will never leave their homes except when needed. Personal communication will be a thing to be heard about when we 'remember the good ole days'. I also foresee our food becoming a grey paste without any flavor.

    In 20 years my daughter will be 33-hopefully working in a career she loves, and maybe, if I'm lucky, I'll be a grandma!

    Wait a minute. I went through recruit training years ago. I did the food as "grey paste without flavour" thing already...back to the drawing board :D

    You wrote "grey" (Canuckian/English/Aust etc).

    Then you wrote "flavor" (Americanos English).

    I thought you Americanos spelled it "gray"? :eusa_whistle:

    Please, I wanted ones that were not based on publish works, science, or religion. Just your personal predictions with nothing to back it up, just for fun.

    American English is barely English. It's a hodge-podge of a lot of different languages with English being just the majority.

    Not speculation: In twenty years you won't have editec to kick around.

    Wild speculation: You'll all miss me something awful.

    OK how about this.

    The government will control:
    the temperature of your home
    what you eat
    what you drive
    how much money you make
    exact 75% of your income for taxes
    and basically wipe their asses with the Constitution
