Over the weekend, my boyfriend and I were invited to a wholesome pumpkin carving party. Rather than lug heavy gourds across Brooklyn, we'd planned to simply grab a couple on the way, alongside the necessary libations and lollies. Forty minutes and four stops later, we were still empty handed, and realised that we'd woefully overestimated the prevalence of pumpkins at bodegas and supermarkets. Rather than throw in the towel, we improvised. We scoured the options at a corner store near our destination and purchased the most pumpkin-like things we could find: Spaghetti squash and honeydew.

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.
