One sweaty New York City day last month, my friend and I ate snails for lunch and durian for dessert. I don't know why we did this, but something about how affordable everything is in Chinatown encourages me to make strange decisions. I didn't dislike the fruit's taste, which was somehow both sweet like custard and meaty like steak and onions. We didn't notice the smell as we ate the fruits' sections standing on the footpath, of course -- New York smells like rotting garbage anyway.

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.
