What major changes will happen? Will the world be a lot different? Will they have track meets on Mars? Will 68 year olds run 14 flat 5ks. Will shoes run for you? Will people live to 115 on average. Will this site be here? Will Facebook be around? Will we all still be around or will some virus kill everyone?
WOW! Thats a lot to process.
#1Major changes will include the growing birth rate in 2nd/3rd world countries. While North America and Europe see declining birth rates.
#2 If #1 happens then yes the world will be/look a lot different.
#3 no probably there won't be track meets on Mars because of #2.
There will probably be a war major or minor in the Pacific with China over the south china sea and some other disputed islands. This is something the free world needs to be preparing for ASAP.
I'll skip over Q's #4&5 .
#6 Great strides have been made in internal medicine over the the last 100/150 years as far as internal organs treating/transplanting is concerned. However the skeleton system we posses today is our achilles heel. If we strive to live 115 years or beyond we'll need to address that as well.
#7 I hope this site is still around. There is a lot of good info sharing on here. A person just needs to know how to filter through the BS to find the good stuff.
#8 I've never been on facebook and hope like hell I never have to.
#9 Interesting question. As history shows you never can know what may happen tomorrow or somewhat further down the line. The best we can do is try to be as well prepared as we can for whatever could come.
Thank You for the questions.
This was fun.
