I got my ears pierced when I was 10. My aunt took me to Claire's at the mall, where I browsed a display of birthstone earrings, picked out a sparkly crystal pair, and then sat in a chair and hugged the giant comfort bear as a young employee aimed at my lobes with a piercing gun. Thirty seconds later, I had pierced ears!

Three days after that, I had crusty green stuff coming out of said pierced ears, and it sucked.

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.
