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.

I've tried a lot of diets in my life. Diets you might describe as "crash diets". Diets you might describe as "unhealthy". I've tried juice diets, ketogenic diets. I did the Soylent thing. I've gone dairy free, sugar free, carb free.

Hey Lifehacker, I am a 6'2" 20 year old male university student and it is fair to say that my diet is appalling.

We've all heard those phrases that denote a certain blindness to the passage of time. "She looks as young as the day I met her" husbands say of their wives 50 years into married life, or "haven't they grown", people tell me of my children. How about "it wasn't even hot" said the frog, realising too late that he had sat unawares in the pot while the water slowly crept up to boiling point.

A new study has shown that travelling to work via public transport is healthier than using your car -- at least when it comes to your waistline. On average, people who drive to work tend to be around 3kg heavier than those whose commute is more active. In other words, that five-minute walk to the bus stop really does make a difference.
