WEBSITE OF THE DAY - Paleo-Future

The business of making predictions is a notoriously tricky one; get it right a few times and you could be hailed as a modern-day Nostrodarmis; get it wrong however, and derision and obscurity will be your only bedfellows.

Paleo-future, isn't in fact in the business of making predictions, but it is interested in looking at those that other people have made.

Entries include text taken from magazines and papers as far back as the 1870s, and run up to the 1990s - some of which include some rather entertaining videos of past predictions.

However, it's all too easy to scoff at ideas gone by, and this site actually proves to be an interesting and useful resource, providing insight and context to the politics and economic state of the time in question.

So have a trawl through, as there is a fair amount of content on offer.
