We went from:

Horses to landing on the Moon with decades to spare.

About 1.8 Billion people to nearly 6 billion. If not for war and corrupt governments, all 6 billion would be well fed.

From about 20 WPM on the Telegraph to 100 terabits per second (experimental)...unless you are using Microsoft Windows, then it's more like 20 bytes per second.

Average life expectancy of 46 years to now approaching 80.

I think we will be able to handle whatever fantasies this guy can dream up...but we still won't have a flying car.

I'll *watch* the ads as long as they...

1. Make their player respect the volume level I set and not jack it up to the maximum for every new video.
2. Disable those stupid, inane, idiotic, moron bait Popups people can put in the videos that typically say, "Subscribe", or, "Click here for the latest version!" and more often than not, are just plain blank.
3. Quit "suggesting" shit unrelated to my search. If I search for "Lava Lake", I don't want to see videos of Russian Fails in the list.

And for fuck sake, ditch the Jimmy Kimmel and Ellen fan club on the home page.

Now, instead of waiting in line behind some idiot with 6 kids who don't know what they want, change their minds and bitch and moan they can't get breakfast a 11:05, I'll have to stand behind said idiot while they try to figure out what buttons to push and their maniac kids running around trashing the place.

I've seen people spending 5 minutes at the damned all in one soda machines trying to figure out how to get a root beer.

An optimist believes we live in the best world possible; a pessimist fears this is true.
