Take a 5 min break from the election and read this...

In 1900, Ladies Home Journal ran an article with predictions for the year 2000.

Some of it is shockingly accurate, but funny enough, they missed the airliner completely.

I'm really trying to see things from your perspective, but I'm having trouble getting my head up my ass

Well, they certainly were wrong about automobiles and horses. I can get a good horse for $500. I shudder to think what it would be like to drive a $500 car.

Not a bad technological assessment of the next century, given the lack of such at the time.

Wonder how well the rest of us would have fared, trying to guess what the year 2100 would behold...
