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.

These days, you can find ridiculously cool loot for practically every geeky franchise imaginable -- from H.R. Giger plush toys to DeLorean time machines made out of Lego.

I'm as thrilled as any Doctor Who fan that nine missing episodes from the 1960s have been rediscovered, and making them immediately available on the iTunes store makes sense.
