Good lord. Should we come up with a list of Future Events that have already branched off into their individual alternate timelines? I'll start.

In 1982, someone farted* wrong in japan causing world timeline to split in two (or three, see below). One timeline is what you are in now, the second one being that leads to the events known as Macross SDF (The 3rd timeline, of course, being Macross: DYRL).

 

* Yes I know it can be argued to infinity to what exactly caused the deviance of timelines.

The Nintendo game Crystalis predicted nuclear war and the collapse of society in 1997.

Between this fact, and watching Back to the Future II with my kids last week; there's been a lot of "where are my flying cars!" around our house.

No flying cars or replicants but Los Angeles did devolve into a sh*thole as predicted, lol.

That being said, Blade Runner is one of my favorite films so this month is is a big moment for me too. 

I have more to post on this later when I get home later tonight.

My favorite example is Planet of the Apes from 1968, that depicted interstellar flight... in 1972!  :huh:

Mankind hadn't even gotten to the moon, but they believed they'd be on their way to Orion's Belt within four years...?  :lol:

We're 19 years past the Second Impact and still don't have giant biomechanical artificial humanoid fighting androids.

We lost flying cars when Marty and Doc changed the future in part III. Marty's a jerk.

No flying cars but we don't have to use a payphone to make a video call that costs you $1.25 :) If I had to choose between a smartphone and a flying car I think I'd choose the smartphone.

There have been flying car prototypes, they’re just not something that’s cost friendly or safe to allow for the masses. Just imagine what damage on flying car accident could do in a residential neighborhood.

Groundcars aren't exactly safe to allow for the masses. But we manage somehow, and almost no one drives through people's front walls(though I personally know two people it has happened to), or just up and rams them.

Maybe - but just think of all those idiots that can't handle TWO dimensions forced to think in a third.  And flying is not like driving in any way when it comes to responsiveness.

Not to mention the extra overhead on air traffic control. Better get those AI-infused ATC towers online to support this stat (or not).

When I was kid, I took as a matter of fact that by time I was in my forties we'd have colonies on Mars and doing exploration on the outer planets.

With the limited budgets in space exploration, I think my grandchildren might not live to see that.

Yeah, we’re barely at the point where we are thinking about a one week visit to the moon. A colony sounds pretty far off at this point
