As a species, we have largely categorised animals as Too Cute To Eat, Too Weird To Eat, or Meat. I do not understand these rules, because I think bugs, normally in the Too Weird category, and rabbit, normally in the Too Cute category, taste very good, while chickens ("Meat") are terrifying salmonella dinosaurs. However, it is understandable to get mad when you are served a Too Cute meat when you thought you were getting Meat meat, or even if you're served pork instead of beef. Heck, I would be mad if someone revealed that my stewed rabbit was actually stewed chicken all along.

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.
