Amazing how it is not that far off, at least in the general concept.

In certain respects, what's amazing is how a lot of the stuff has surpassed what old sci-fi novels had.

Can you imagine the regulatory nightmare that would be? You think the DMV is bad...

I remember a similar display on the way into Space Mountain at Disney World, circa 1972.
I wonder when the lies will stop and truth begin, even as grim as the truth may be. And then I remember that for 70 years, the reign of terror in Russia called itself "the people's government." We have so far to fall, yet we are falling fast and Hell yawns to receive us.

If I could only be transported back in time to 1977 my Senior Year in HS with my Ipod, holding hundreds and hundreds of songs in the palm of my hand. I would be the most popular guy on campus, until men in black hull me off to Area 51 where I would never be seen again. Or I would be burned as a witch.

GE had a futuristic display at Disney World. But, all the stuff has come and gone. It really fascinated me at the time.

Original Disneyland Anaheim had such an exhibit in 1957.

Those trams were  a life saver after chasing three young boys around the place! Back then, my favorite display was the Hall of Presidents. I've been there a few times since with grandkids, but it wasn't the same as the first time in 1970s.
