Don't worry Aran I remember him as Sir David. I was actually debating on whether to call him that or his present name.

People keep talking about how horrible this world is and yet they want to live in it for eternity...

Thanks Lady Davida, yeah I was somewhat wondering where Polaris is now that I'm somewhat back. Yet I haven't had time for forums for a long time. I'll check in there anyways.

It'll probably be safe to predict that 50 years from now Spiderweb forums will be relatively the same.

Thanks a lot guys! This really helped me out, and as always the posts are amazing. :D Hope to come back as a regular again one day, it's been a while...

Hola. I don't know if anyone still remembers the name... hey to the old members, hi to the new ones. Spiderweb still thrives. :cool:

I've come back from the grave to ask for help for a school project I'm doing, and I hope I could get something from this forum. I've posted it on one or two others, too...

I've been given an assignment to come up with some predictions on a day in the life of a high school student would be 50 years from now (i.e., what technology would be available), in 2056. My teacher said that to help the class get an idea of how much things can change, we're to look back at the past 50 years and see how much had changed since then. Indeed, a lot has changed: Who would've thought in the 1950's that there would be personal computers everywhere and information available at our fingertips? Or cellular phones that enable us to communicate almost anytime, anywhere? And this is only in 50 years...

I'm here to ask those who were in high school fifty years ago, more or less. What was a day in your life like? What did you expect the future would be like? What kind of technology was available then, that is changed nowadays?

Also you don't have to have been in high school back then to answer. If anyone had predictions/expectations for the future not just during the 50's, please feel free to share your ideas. I know there's a lot of young people here but there's also a good number of older people. But anyone could've had expectations. I'm basically trying to get an idea of how far things can really go compared to how far we expect things to go, and I'll apply that to my predictions for the next 50 years.

I'd appreciate any and all help. Thanks guys. :)

Jeopardy and Ken in General
Agent

I agree with Sherlock that Ken can now step down and let another person give it a shot at scoring big money. I mean, he's passed the $1 million mark, and there were a few former challengers who went against him that probably would've done pretty well if he had stepped down from the championship spot. The thrill of challenge in Jeopardy is kind of dying because, as he said, he makes everything look too easy against the challengers.

He's incredibly good at the game. Both a fast finger and lots of trivial knowledge. That's amazing. I think he'll stop at $1 million...or will he?
But, I think they should test their signalling buttons, if they don't do it on a regular basis, because I noticed that two shows ago or so, the third one was a bit slow.

The Hawaiian roller coaster ride was over, thankfully. Danny was alone again; somehow he was too slow to catch up with whoever he finds. Ah well. He starts to look for company in the ship. As he conducts his search he comes back to the room with the fridge bears and it gives him a slight chill. He walks further on. After what seemed like forever (which was actually 2:40 minutes) he comes across a man leaning against a wall; he seems to be sleeping.

Danny: Hm, hey, must be time for some sleep. Is it eleven in the evening already?

Danny sits beside the man and goes to sleep.

Danny: Uh oh. And I thought roller coasters were always fun. Eeek!

Danny and Zephyr run around, or try to, in panic, as the MicroSpider gives them their own mini-roller coaster ride. Over the speaker they start to hear "Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride" from Lilo & Stitch.

Zephyr: Didn't know they had some music on board...Where did?ow!?Plah go, anyway?
Danny: I think I saw him turn over there...oof!

Danny, lost somewhere in the ship trying to find the janitor, heard a growl. He had heard the announcement about emergency training, and thought that they were being invaded by creatures from the subject's body. He looked outside the window and saw the change of scenery. Hurriedly Danny followed the source of the growl; perhaps the others were there trying to fight the enemy. Soon enough, he encountered an unconscious bear. He was tempted to lie down and sleep on the comfortable-looking fur but resisted the temptation and moved on.

Danny: Um, excuse me, whose bear was that I passed by?
Plah: Sshh! You'll wake it up! And it's no one's bear; it came from a fridge.
Zephyr: Say, have you seen a guy wandering around?
Danny: Hm...I can't remember anyone like that...but I'll tell ya later if I do.

Six bags. The hiccups had stopped, and for that little Danny was very grateful.

Danny: How can that be two Big Macs and a medium French fries? I gotta find the janitor so I can throw these away.

Welcome back.
Ah, the Dark Tower series. I'll be reading that after I finish with the thick It, which I read in between whatever we have to read for English. Wolves of the Calla is incredibly thick, beats Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

Danny: I'm gonna get sick!
He was still in his chair; he had slept. Looking around, he found that some of the people have left their places. He also saw an airsick bag in front of him, with the words "In Case of Whatever Happens" written on either side. He opened it just in time. Beside him, a small LED screen was flasing "HICCUP."
Danny: This body better get scared somehow, or I'll fill up all these bags.

Danny: Are you sure we're not abducted?

Everyone immediately says "No." Meanwhile, the cleaning spells were hard at work. A voice over the speaker (someone said, "We have speakers?") called out, saying:

Voice: Hey, stop cleaning that, it's going to irritate the nose and we'll get sneezed out. Over.

Alex: Don't worry, these spells are environmentally friendly, he won't feel a thing.

Voice: All right. Over and out.

The audience oohed and aahed at the magnificent cleaning show before them.

Danny was relieved that the MicroSpider was back to normal; but when he came across a window, he freaked out.

Danny: *enormous gasp, cough* We're in the alien mothership! I've got to warn the others!

He ran around the ship until he came across Prof. Heimen. They spoke at the same time.

Heimen: Hey, can you help me find my glasses?
Danny: Hey, mister, we're in the mothership!
*Heimen races for the next line*
Heimen: Whoa, whoa, whoa, hold on. Aliens? I thought we were going inside someone else's body.
Danny: Oh yeah! I remember now!
Heimen: Uh...okay. Now, will you help me look for my glasses?
Danny: Hm...
Heimen: What's that supposed to mean?
Danny: Hehe, nothing, mister. I'll help ya out. But are you sure there are no aliens? Or are we the aliens? Are you an alien?
Heimen: Let's just focus on my eyeglasses for now.

Little Danny dreamed he was driving a car. He was smiling in his sleep.

Danny: Hahaha!...Yeah, that's right!...Race ya!!...Watch out!

The car crashed into an oak. Danny woke up. He was alone in the room, and the man he'd met was gone.

Danny: Oh, this is so boring! [He raises his hands in the air.] Why me?????

He starts exploring the MicroSpider again, this time with some difficulty, as the vessel was at a faster rate than before.
