Judging from the many internet rants ("10 Things Childfree People Will NEVER Understand", "Why Mums and Dads Are Selfish and Annoying"), you'd think parents and non-parents are entirely different species. Something happens the moment a baby is born -- adult friendships that once seemed so easy become filled with obstacles ("What do you mean you can only eat dinner at 4:45PM?" "Why don't you answer my phone calls, ever?" or "Sorry, I don't have to time to hear about your promotion/mother-in-law problems/recent holiday -- the baby is crying").

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
