Netflix debuted the teaser trailer for their original series Dear White People earlier today, and wouldn't you know it, some very predictable people weren't pleased! A summation of the 34-second teaser might be "blackface is bad!" which most sane, compassionate individuals would agree with. But if the internet were populated only by the sane and compassionate, we'd never have hashtags like #BoycottNetflix.

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.
