It’s almost 2009.  Where are our shiny one piece suits, the flying cars, the moving sidewalks and meals in pill form? Click HERE to see artist’s renditions of the supposed future from vintage magazines.

  1. I live in Greece where the Greeks invented the ‘GIRO.’ As you may know, this is the famous meat grilled on a turning spit that is positioned very close to a hot grill. Thus, the word in Greek ‘giro’ means to ‘go around.’

    Now, please tell me where I can get one of those very cute cars called GIRO! Actually, the SMART CAR would look very nice indeed if someone could figure out how to put the blades on top! Can you imagine though, how the crazy drivers would avoid smashing into each other in mid air!!! Falling debris from the sky, landing on our heads.

    By the way, I think your site is one of the best! Thank you for posting so many interesting things. It’s so much better than turning on the news to hear only doom and gloom! Keep up the good work.

    Greetings from Athens, Greece.
