what do you think the world will be like five years from now?


what do you think the world will be like five years from now?

i think we will be facing high prices,recession,more war,rising crime,oil shortages,natural disasters,etc.

i feel like things are gonna get worse and i hate that for my childrens sake.i swore i'd never have children due to the way the world is now.i was 30 years old and then had two beautiful babies and i love them and i regret saying i never would have children.i will be getting near 50 before they even graduate high school.i hope they have the same feel good times and carefree worries i had in high school but i think thats wishful thinking.in high school they'll probably go through metal detectors or have to pay 8 bucks a gallon for gas.they'll probably have to deal with gangs and worry about some foreign country dropping missles on us.i'll worry myself sick probably about all this when they get older.my parents used to talk about the good 'ol days and i would laugh but it looks like i had my good 'ol days too.i can just see myself saying..."sonny when i walk to school nobody shot at me or killed the teacher" or "when i was your age we only paid a dollar a gallon for gas"  or "the only gang i joined were the boy scouts"

My guess is that in five years, you will be able to have more of whatever it is you're looking for, but the "middle class" will be more of a memory. You will be either well-off or just scraping by, and if your skills at pick5 are any indication :-) ... Life will be decent enough if you can live in a gated community, send your kids to private/charter school, own an interest in a co-op farm, and not have to drive too much. The "wealthy" in many "poor" countries live this way, today. We, in the U.S., are just now learning how to deal with the "gaps" in wages, education, etc.

It'll be 2012, the end of the Mayan calendar. A change will take place for humans around the world.

Mcdonalds will sell burgers with real meat.
Bread companies will start to put 10 hotdog buns in a bag, instead of 8.
Eggplants will have eggs and plants in them, and finally Grapenuts cereal will have grapes and nuts in them.
It's gonna be life changing I tell ya!... Life changing!
