I don't know about you but I wonder what will the world be like in the future... I wonder what technology will be around, and if we do manage to explore space by human lets see if we got any further than the Moon!
This of course will be all but speculation (unless you are hiding a time machine in your house haha).

After a massive food and water shortage due to massive over population as well as dwindling fossil fuel resources, the remaining human population (after the resulting global health pandemics) will revert to a feudal cannibalistic society which lives in smaller self sufficient communities with simpler non computer related technologies.
Enjoy it folks, this is the most developed the world will ever be right now..

Quoting af773atmsp (Reply 11): I don't think it will be doom and gloom. Hopefully between 2050 and 2100 we will start to develop on the moon and Mars so we don't have to worry as much about too many people on Earth.
I back that and I add that Israel will become the first country on the moon after giving back Palestine to Palestiniens

Quoting prebennorholm (Reply 13): The security check queues have grown unbearable. Instead of removing jacket, belt and shoes we will be stripped off the last piece of underwear and be X-rayed fully naked.
Oh, NOOOOOoooo, my friend. That's way too optimistic. X-raying sure, but also there will be a forced colonoscopy. Don't worry, it's only a matter of time until a medical device company comes up with a flexible endoscope that is so easy to use that even a TSA grunt can operate it. The CEO of the device company will, of course, be a regular golf partner of several high-ranking elected (and unelected) officials. You will also be required to pass through a similar security checkpoint before getting in your car at home.
Airfares will averate $1-5 per trip. Of course, you will need to pay non-optional surcharges for 1) fuel 2) aircraft maintenance 3) seat use 4) pressurization 5) seatbelts 6) having a pilot and F/A 7) airport fees 8) the cost of the airline taking your money and depositing it in the bank. I'm not even counting the optional ones like checking baggage, carrying aboard baggage ($1 for each item in your pockets, $5 for each purse, $20 to use the under-seat space, and $40 for overhead bin use, $35 for checking, $70 for retrieving your bag after checking it). So the final price (not fare) will be $800.
