....that 1 in 8 couples who married last year met online?
....that India has more honor students than the US has children?
...that if Myspace was a country, its population would be the fifth-largest in the world?
...that it took radio 38 years to achieve 50 million users, but Facebook reached this milestone in just 2 years?
Me neither. The video below contains a number of eye-opening facts that highlight just how rapidly the world is changing. Assuming for the moment that
we make it through the next decade as advanced societies, the transformations will still upend our world in ways we can only begin to imagine.
There is a lot of talk about preparing for TSHTF on ATS, but much less talk about how to navigate a future society that may in some ways be more
bewildering than any post-apocalyptic landscape.

How right you are. I love it when anybody predicts the future based on history or on current trends. I just sit back and smile when someone says" in
25 years" or " a hundred years from now" I hear these lines and know they have no clue.
Notice they said e-mail keystrokes? In the video in the link above? At the end of the video he sys a really creepy, "and thats how it works". Could
he have been any creepier? Yea.
If you listen to what he says and not the way he says it you will be freakin out.
But I mean, there are so many people that are happy living this way. I only know one person that even thinks anything about any type of control coming
from this. Everyone else would be very sad if they lost the social media they have now. The public is happy in their imaginary world.
