I was just reading this article about predictions made in 1900 about what people thought would happen by the year 2000. The predictions highlighted were mostly about energy, agriculture and transportation, and surprisingly, many of them were spot-on or at least close. The weirdest/saddest one to me was #13 about the U.S. population. The predictions was that there would be at least 350,000,000 people in American. There are only 306,000,000, but it says that if America had not participated in so many wars since its inception, the number would be accurate. At least a million Americans have died in these wars and they would have had enough descendants to fill in the gap.
