I'll admit it. I'm showing my age by thinking of The Amazing Colossal Man as iconic. When I go to imdb.com for research,  a lot of the early names on the list will be young actors I couldn't pick out of a police line-up. For example, today Kathleen Robertson was the top of the list in front of Kevin Bacon, Angelica Huston and Billy Crudup, who to my mind are actual movie stars. When we get past the 50th best known person, a name has to jump out at me, and when it does, it's usually a guy like Glenn Langan, who is forgotten by younger audiences.

Many happy returns to all the living on the list and to the dead, thanks for all the memories

Predictor: Geoffrey Hoyle in his 1972 book, 2010: Living in the Future

Prediction: All public transportation within the town is free. You have to pay only when you travel from one town to another.

The bus stops in front of a large group of buildings, surrounded by beautiful country. The Center and grounds are so big it would take weeks to walk around them. Every afternoon professional games are played somewhere in the grounds. You can watch football, tennis, swimming, basketball, or play games yourself with your friends.

There are also places in the grounds where you can get away from the crowds and go fishing, horseback riding, climbing, or just walking.

Reality: Nice to see the commie Hoyle let free enterprise work on some level. Paying for transportation to other towns! Professional sports! At least freedom isn't completely dead.

Of course, I'm kidding. Hoyle's 2010 sounds like a paradise. Sorry I missed it.

Looking one day ahead... INTO THE FUTURE!
