Fantastic!

by

Ladies of the blog, be sad no more!

In the year 2000, The American will live “fifty years instead of thirty-five as at present-for he will reside in the suburbs!” “Mosquitoes, house-flies and roaches will have been practically exterminated!” “Peas and beans will be as large as beets are to-day!” “There will be No C, X or Q in our every-day alphabet! They will be abandoned because unnecessary!In vacation time poor children will be taken on trips to various parts of the world!” “Nicaragua will ask for admission to our Union after the completion of the great canal. Mexico will be next!” 

Actually, what is so great about this article from 1900 is how right they are about so many things.
