Did you see the BBC's new list of the 100 best movies of the 21st century, chosen by film critics from around the world? Like any movie list, scores of film geeks are tripping over themselves to declare it all wrong. David Lynch's 2001 Hollywood fever dream Mulholland Drive took the number one spot. But honestly, the selection of movies didn't bother me so much. The dumbest thing about this list was the fact that they included the year 2000 as being part of the 21st century. It's crap like this that truly gets my Comic Book Guy voice cracking. Because the 21st century didn't start until the year 2001.

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.
