Exactly. Reality is our history has always been marred by conflicts, only the participants and their motives differ. I doubt this trend will change in any foreseeable future. Until the end that is.

Gosh, that's awfully dark! (Although depressingly realistic)

Technology will be changed a lot.

Maybe they find the cure for AIDS and HIV.

Probably India will become the biggest population in the world.

People maybe talk more about global warming.

Sure! That game rocks. I used to play it in college.

My guess is a barren, lifeless world. Smog looms over the landscape, rendering a foggy and dusty look over what was once great human cities. Forests of abandoned buildings and ruins stand silently as a testament to the disaster that has destroyed civilizations.
Ah, I see you've visited downtown L.A. Twisted Evil

To be honest it was inspired by a trip I made to Kaohsiung City some ten years ago. I heard the place is a bit better now though.

L.A. works, too. Smile

When I was young, I thought my life will be totally different after 2000. (yepp... I was born in 80's) Yes, it's different. I cannot live without computers and cellphones. However, the fundemental thing didn't change. I have to eat, sleep, watch TV, write diary, and think about what happiness is.
I wonder what it looks like in the future, but I don't expect too much. Robots will work instead of me, but I will be much busier. The relationship with people will be not strong, and I will feel more loneliness.
I think we have to balance technology and human study. Laughing

You're very wise Smile
Humans will always be humans, even if the world around us changes. I will always be the person I am today.

I don't mean to be insulting, but I can't tell...

Are you being serious, or joking?
