Have you ever stopped and wondered what the newspaper headlines might be like in in 2030?
The year 2030 is only ten years away, but if you think 2020 is bad (and it’s not over yet) and that “life as we know it” appears to be changing rapidly, who knows what the next ten years might bring.
Who would have thought only ten years ago that life would have changed so much in such a short time. It sometimes seems as if technology is racing ahead at unbelievable speed to make our lives better (theoretically), while politics,religion and disasters often seem intent on dragging us backwards.
Just think back to 2019. Could anyone have imagined how our lives would change around the world in a few short months due to COVID-19.
Look back even further to September 2001. The effects of 9-11 are still being felt even now, worldwide.
Anyhow, enough dwelling on the serious side of life, for now at least. Here are some examples of what the news headlines might be like in 2030.
- Ozone created by electric cars now killing millions in the seventh largest country in the world, Mexifornia, formerly known as California.
- White minorities still trying to have English recognized as Mexifornia’s third language.
- Baby conceived naturally – scientists stumped.
- Couple petitions court to reinstate heterosexual marriage.
- Iran still closed off; physicists estimate it will take at least 10 more years before radioactivity decreases to safe levels.
- France pleads for global help after being taken over by Jamaica.
- George Z. Bush says he will run for President in 2036.
- Postal Service raises price of first class stamp to $17.89 and reduces mail delivery to Wednesdays only.
- 85-year, $75.8 billion study: Diet and Exercise is the key to weight loss.
- Average weight of Americans drops to 250 lbs.
- Japanese scientists have created a camera with such a fast shutter speed, they now can photograph a woman with her mouth shut.
- Massachusetts executes last remaining conservative.
- Supreme Court rules punishment of criminals violates their civil rights.
- Average height of NBA players now nine feet, seven inches.
- IRS sets lowest tax rate at 75 percent.
- Florida voters still having trouble with voting machines.
I have funny feeling that one or two of those might just become reality, especilly the way things have been going lately.
