108 years ago...

a list of predictions about the future was published in The Ladies Home Journal.
I find it pretty damn fascinating... to see what actually has happened that was predicted... and some of the silly predictions like this:

Prediction #13: Strawberries as Large as Apples will be eaten by our great-great-grandchildren for their Christmas dinners a hundred years hence. Raspberries and blackberries will be as large. One will suffice for the fruit course of each person. Strawberries and cranberries will be grown upon tall bushes. Cranberries, gooseberries and currants will be as large as oranges. One cantaloupe will supply an entire family.

how ridiculous! i mean, i don't even like cantaloupe.
