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.

The United States may have avoided the brunt of Hurricane Matthew's deadly rain and wind storms, but it wasn't enough to prevent the Southeast coast from receiving severe damage. After Hurricane Matthew rolled through the Caribbean and killed nearly 900 people in Haiti, the storm continued along the US Southeastern coast, pummelling states like Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina all weekend.

Every time a natural disaster hits, we see plenty of fake photos on social media. And with Hurricane Matthew currently hitting Florida, there are lots of fake images currently doing the rounds. The short version: If you see a photo of sharks in the streets, it's probably fake.

Hurricane Matthew ravaged Haiti on Tuesday, completely decimating the southeastern region of the country and killing 842 people, according to local authorities. Information has been slow to make its way to the rest of the world, because areas hit hardest by the hurricane were remote coastal villages, completely disconnected from the rest of the country when the hurricane hit landfall.

Category 3 Hurricane Matthew swept up eastern Florida today, delivering heavy rainfall, 160km/h gusts, and powerful waves all along the coast. The storm continues to march northward toward Georgia and South Carolina, with deadly 2m to 3m surges possible over the weekend

Hurricane Matthew is one of the most powerful storms to barrel through the Caribbean in over a decade. The violent windstorm has already claimed the lives of more than 108 people in Haiti and at least four people in the Dominican Republic. The hurricane has displaced tens of thousands more across the Caribbean including the Bahamas and Cuba.

All signs are pointing toward deadly hurricane Matthew slamming directly into Space Coast -- home to Kennedy Space Center and Cape Canaveral Air Force Station -- on Friday. If that unfortunate prediction comes true, it will be the worst storm to hit the iconic Florida spaceport since it was built in 1962.

Video: Damn. Here's a view of Hurricane Matthew from the ISS and it is truly frightening to see, because the storm seems to stretch itself all over the planet and the eye is so well defined. The category 4 hurricane's impact on Haiti could be catastrophic, with winds hitting 225km/h -- so let's hope everyone down there can stay as safe as possible.
