  8. I think they just thought that by now, all of the western countries would have a bigger population boom (I mean you look at before, it wasn't uncommon for families to have 6-7 kids, instead of 1-2 of today). Its only normal they thought big cities would be more crowded.

  9. Yup they were off, by a little bit lol. Someone should make a pic of what they think 2050 will look like.

  10. Very interesting picture. Personally I would have loved to have been in a world similar to final fantasy IX with flyuing airships and massive castle cities
