30 Day Challenge 23

24 May, 2011

Oh all right, PK, I’ll extend this little project to the 31st. :-) Actually, I never did the math to figure out when the thirty days would end — the 31st sounds like a dandy cutoff.

Today’s is a bit of a tuffy:

Day 23
Name one thing (either physical or abstract) you believe will be obsolete 10 years from now.

Gas-guzzling automobiles.

1. cursive writing for young people…

It’s not a tested skill so there is very little focus on it.

2. long division by hand…

It will go the way of the slide rule. Calculators are replacing basic computational skills. I don’t agree with it, but it’s a reality unfortunately.

3. the ability to read a map…

Why would you when your GPS will do it for you?

4. thinking???? (Did I really say that?)

Wires. (Telephone wires, computer wires, etc.) We won’t need wires because of ‘cloud’ computing and wireless connectivity.

That means I won’t have a mound of spaghetti behind my desk. Yay.

The idea of permanent marriage and putting work and patience into a relationship.

Compact Discs, DVDs, and other sorts of optical media. I think the next version of Mac OS (“Lion”) is only going to be available as a digital download.

…so I guess I better hurry up & get my CD finished so I can sell a few of these dinosaurs, eh??

Manual labor. Soon I don’t think we will ever have to lift a finger if we don’t want to, even in our own home. We already have washers/driers, ovens, dishwashers, robot sweepers, etc. Before we know it *everything* will be manufactured by a robot and no human hands will be needed in the work place either. We will all just turn into even lazier bums. Wahoo!

Maybe my 1997 Mercury Sable — just maybe :-)

Maybe me, though I’m not making any plans for it.

Invasive heart by-pass surgery. They’ll be doing it robotically and orthoscopically.

1. Rap Music

2. Needing to seperate trash from recycling. I feel that these should and will be done automatically when brought to any center. (At least it should, as many people don’t feel the need to recycle.)

3. Paper

4. Enriched flour vs. whole wheat

I am thinking a PC–laptops and pads and whatever will be the norm. Was also thinking along the line of wires and being mostly wireless.
