27 January 2013


Birthday
Alan Cumming b. 1965

His best known work in sci-fi/fantasy genre is in the X-Men and Spy Kids series. My favorite work of his is still The Anniversary Party.
 

Prediction: 1963: Albania unleashes a nuclear attack on Italy and World War Three begins.

Predictor: Nevil Shute from On The Beach published 1957
The 1959 movie version moves the year to 1964.

Reality: Albania? Really?

Nuclear war was a very prevalent idea in the culture back in the middle of last century and this book was one of the early best sellers on the topic.

But Albania starts it? I mean seriously, Nevil, there's creativity and then there's just being goofy.

Looking one day... INTO THE FUTURE!

The Omni Future Almanac gets really specific about when a computer will be capable of beating the world champion human at chess.

Join me then... IN THE FUTURE!
