  1. William A. Peterson

    It doesn’t count as much of a prediction when they got it WRONG! 😉

  2. OK, I give up — what’s wrong about this? Is it that they say “Twittering” instead of “Tweeting”?

  3. Maybe the idea that you’d want to go back to Earth.

  4. Do you know that in a short science fiction story, Mark Twain not only predicted the internet, he predicted that it would work through phone lines and that people would almost immediately get bored with it and use it for social networking…

  5. A Jules Verne story had an Internet-thing too.

  6. 20 lbs is still a lot heavier than air.

  7. Why Does Lilith look like Death Vally with Blue Rocks?
    Also, I am with William on the whole twitter/tweet thing!

  8. What the heck are they flying over anyway? A giant watermelon?
