The Picture Slot choice was pretty easy today. As much as I love the work of Jonathan Winters, Stubby Kaye and Stanley Tucci, as big a movie star as Leonardo Di Caprio is, as pretty as Demi Moore is, the blog is still called This Day In Science Fiction and Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. is the boss here.
I might switch up my decision next year, but right now I'm thinking I won't.
Many happy returns to all the living on the list.

Prediction: Americans will be working a 20 hour work week with seven weeks vacation
Predictor: A 1965 Senate subcommittee, according to the website Mental Floss.
Reality: OMG! America has become France!
Well... as much fun as it is to bash the French, this is the sort of prediction that made sense when labor unions actually held some power in the country.
And, just maybe, they might have cribbed their notes from The Jetsons a little bit.
