The next decade

#1
Evening ladies & gents,

The dawning of a new decade is close upon us, looking back to the start of 2000 there have been some drastic changes in technology, politics & world events. The attack on the twin towers from 9/11 has seen the rise of international terrorism & HM Forces to be deployed in two wars. The Asian Tsunami & Hurricane Katrina have highlighted the issues of global warming & we have also seen the election of the first black US President. The internet has also gone from its fledgling start in public access from home PCs to a worldwide phenomenon even available on mobile phones.

One can only speculate, but what sort of wonders can we expect to see in the next decade? What technological advances I wonder? What will change? What can we plan for?

We stand in the shadow of all the generations that have gone before us, but in spite of their achievements we are privileged to live in such interesting times.

&c

Well in 1990 I was doing MTQ2 and wondering what a platoon commander would have to site in 2010.

I came to the conclusion he would have one x sgt, 4-5 IT specialist soldiers and and 8 or 9 of those walker things from robocop.

Oh and we would be at war on the north coast of Africa or with the Chinese so got that wrong (or did I?)

Everyone knows that time starts in Greenwich old boy so you've living on borrowed time until the meridian swings by.

I was considering sticking my todge over the GMT line when the clock chimes tonight actually, that way the very first thing in the entire world to officially enter 2010 would be my privy parts, what an honour! :lol:

I predict many people will misunderstand the decimal system of numbers.

Rise of the far right in Europe, collapse of the Euro, Italy and Greece go bankrupt, Eastern Europe starts looking eastwards again as does Turkey, Confidence in Obama collapses, China gets involved in Middle eastern and East African politics. How about that for starters.

How about a shortage of water affecting the major centres of population (China & India) causing failure of staple crops (rice & wheat) in turn leading to mass migration.

The fall out shelter may not be a bad idea.

On the other hand will our new government be able to sort out the current mess in one decade?
