In news that is so weird, you almost won't believe it, a Russian man has volunteered to be the victim for the world's first head transplant, which two doctors want to perform early next year. Valery Spiridonov -- a 31-year-old Russian man who operates an educational software company out of his home in the small city of Vladimir, Russia -- suffers from Werdnig-Hoffmann disease, which confines him to a wheelchair. The disease is genetic and usually fatal, a disorder "that wastes away muscles and kills motor neurons -- nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that help move the body."

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.
