    2025: Global Trends

    http://www.dni.gov/nic/PDF_2025/2025...nal_Report.pdf

    This is a report prepared for the US government every four years. Some interesting predictions here.

    Here is the AP article associated with it.

    I take all those predictions with a grain of salt. They can't read into the future and what has happened in the past is all irrelevent.

    How is what happened in the past irrelevent?
    Or something.

    Reckon Craig would give Mark Thatcher a job as a British Ambassador in Africa tbh.

    Being made by the US government doesn't really inspire me to:

    a. read it
    b. believe it
    c. not use it as toilet paper
