If it were 2035 right now, what sort of questions would we see on fluther?

Asked by Austinlad (16283 points ) July 25th, 2010

I’m borrowing @Just_Justine’s great question about 1950, but pushing it forward 25 years. Always fun to project into the future, and besides, it’ll be here before we know. (Will we?)

How can I re-establish my neuro-connector startup with the aerocar? This morning, I transmitted “AppleSoftWal*Mall” and it took me to my husband’s mistress’s house. I hate her, that blue, uni-boobed witch.

My grandma said that a Ph.D today is the same as a high school diploma was back in the 1970s. Is she for real? I mean, how are you supposed to get a switchflip job at McDonald’s without one?

Who do you think should play the 25th Doctor? Daniel Roche or Johnny Depp?

My question would be, does anybody know how to adjust the volume of your phone implant without going back to AT&Tronics?

1. This guy asked me out. He is sending me mixed messages. Do you think he likes me? (Details follow).
2. I can’t figure out how to use Windows 242. Can anyone help?
3. I know that Google now owns all our personal information. Is there any way that I can tell my boss that the reason I left my last job was because I was unhappy and not because I was fired. More than that, will he believe me?
4. What sort of music can I get my grandmother for Christmas? She used to like some group called “The Beatles”.
5. Should I get my eye color changed permanently?
6. My local marriage center has a database of men that are supposed to be compatible with me. I like this guy that I met when I went to Moonbase camp last year. He is not in the database. Should I go with my instinct and pay the fee to date outside the list? Or just forget about it and go with what is supposed to be compatible with me?
7. My brother joined the Army last year. Now that war has been outlawed globally, they are busy building dams in Ethiopia. What’s a good gift to sent to someone stationed in Ethiopia?
8. Is it true that Piper Palin is running for governor of Alaska?
9. When will Lindsey Lohan leave rehab?
10. When will Britney Spears leave rehab?

You you remember all the panic surrounding 2012? Wasn’t that ridiculous?

Do you think our country is more free now that there is good medical care available to everyone as a right of being a legal resident, and the banks and energy multinationals are properly regulated by our government?

Is it hard to imagine how we all used to pollute the air with fossil fuel powered vehicles and the energy companies ran almost everything?

Coloma's avatar

Well for those of us in the 50 and over crowd the questions will probably be revolving around purchasing motorized scooters, medicaid, driving tests, cremation vs. burial, and the best buys on hearing aides. lololol

Oh and….

11. Do you think George Noory will ever leave Coast to Coast? (I hope not.)

Dutchess_III's avatar

@max_gutierrez Add away! I was just giving you a heads up. I came from another site that closed, and in our society it was polite manners to respond to each person individually….not so here. When in Rome and all….welcome to Fluther!

“Gosh, where did the time go?”

Symbeline's avatar

We’d probbaly be having debates on whether IE ever existed or not.

ETpro's avatar

@Symbeline There is hope for the future, then.

Symbeline's avatar

@ETpro Let’s hope so.

Dutchess_III's avatar

There is.

Just how many names can Puff Daddy come up with?

Symbeline's avatar

@bob_ The question is, just how many music videos can he come up with that aren’t actually thirty three minute long movies.

Dutchess_III's avatar

What was the question?

Symbeline's avatar

The question was, will people still remember MuchMusic in 2035?

Chances are however, it will probably still exist. Unfortunately.

Dutchess_III's avatar

No, me thinks the question was “In 2035 will anyone remember what a Munchikan was?”

“My boyfriend has kind of a temper, especially when he gets drunk, like last night, he broke my right arm and and my left foot and knocked out like 6 of my teeth and I really think that maybe I should leave him because, well, he has a temper and he doesn’t have a job, not for like two years but that’s not really his fault because he’s really sensitive and arty and talented and has a bad back from a car accident 10 years ago, but still, I work really hard and have to pay for everything, and then he gets pissed because I’m never home and he says I don’t spend enough time with him but I guess I don’t mind but still. I just really, really love him and I know he really, really loves me. What should I do?”

The technology may advance, but I’m not convinced that people and the questions will.

@Simone_De_Beauvoir Dick Cheney is the Anti-Christ. He is not subject to any of the rules or laws that non-anti-christs are bound by.

Dutchess_III's avatar

I’ll make you a sandwich, bob_! Any kind you want!!!!!

FutureMemory's avatar

New York Times headline, July 26th 2035:

“Roving gangs beat to death anyone heard uttering the outlawed word “sandwich” – distinct lack of outrage from public”

lillycoyote's avatar

@bob_ here’s a sandwich for you. “The Bobbie,” from Capriotti’s. It’s basically Thanksgiving on a roll and it’s yummy.

Dutchess_III's avatar

@lillycoyote you’re playing wif your LIFE! There are roaming gangs out there ready to hurt you!!

FutureMemory's avatar

@Dutchess_III beat to death, not just hurt.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Deletes “sandwich” from my vocabulary.

Go make bob_ a buger.
