I personally hope that you are wrong Texas.
Hopefully in 50 years heath care will be completely free and we will all have easy access to it.

In 50 years there will be taps on each corner dispensing Federal Beer. Each citizen will be allowed one free pail of beer a day. Robotic Man Servants will help intoxicated citizens home and tuck them into bed, change their bibs and clean the vomit off citizen's jumpsuits.

My predictions for 2054:
1.)Hovercars based on field effect propulsion; 500-1000 passanger 'wingless' planes.
2.)Intersolar and possibly Interstellar travel via gravity manipulation, colonies on the moon, mars and its moons, Jupiter's moons, and maybe even Saturn's moons. Probes will have explored the entire solar system and reached nearby stars. Multiple Space elevators continously carrying materials to orbit. Many space stations, most a few miles long or longer.

I once read/heard, that the government is actually 50 years more advanced than they let on to be. I aint to sure if this is true. However I do believe that what we see and what we have available to us are two seperate matters.
The technology in 50 years time could be two seperate things. It could either be highly advanced, as in renewable,everlasting energy techonologies, with the technology to match or the other matter is that the technology of 50 years time, will be nothing more than clubs, and stones.
Hmmm makes you think.

Wow, I've never seen such an old thread being bumped before. It's quite entertaining reading nearly 10 year old comments about technology, we don't seem to have advanced whatsoever.

I believe that there is a fork in our future as we progress. If we, as a planet do not develop a renewable power source that can support our planet and all of the existing and planned technological advances, we will start to slide towards an 1800's lifestyle, where the gap between rich and poor ill be a large chasm. However, if we develop an abundant renewable energy source, things will be very exciting in the future (in a good way).

Perhaps hydrogen running engines, flying cars, first permanent homes in space, more advanced system of cloning, 3-D televisions, saucer aircrafts, and many more inventions that could benefit us, and/or blow us all to hell.
