[Via Modern Mechanix]

Read the predictions that were made for life in 2008 (as published in a journal from the 60s called ‘Mechanix Illustrated’)!

  • How accurate do you think this prediction was? (I’d kill for that intelligence pill)
  • Do you think we’ll ever have things as described here?
  • You are a futurebuilder, what is your best innovation for 2025?

Worst thing: silence

with one comment

This is a very important tip on the speaking part:

The worst thing in the exam is silence. If you really have no opinion, then say it: ‘I really have no opinion on this matter’.

And if you are really stuck and need some time to pull yourself together, you could start off by asking your partner: “What do you think?”…s/he may hate you for doing this, but it’s all about survival, isn’t it?
