Italy Cartoons and jokes
Crocodiles In 2100 three crocodiles are lying on the river banks: - We used to be green once – says the first one - And we used to be able to swim – adds the second one - That’s enough – shouts the third – Let’s fly to collect some honey!
Prison What’s the difference between future and prison? For some people it’s long, for others it’s short, but nobody does life sentence there.

the future is … strange to think about
On the positive side, I think people are becoming smarter and smarter, and so we will be able to exterminate diseases and we will become conscient of the importance of nature.
We are becoming less social: family is taking a less important place in our lives. We are all individuals: we don’t feel a real connection with other people anymore.
More and more people are becoming victims of modern culture. The factories of the products we use have bad influences of the people in the third world.
the future is … not yesterday, not today, maybe tomorrow
the future is … a reflection of the past
A Strange Fluid I think that we won’t use electricity anymore but we will use some kind of strange new fluid. This fluid will be similar to water but it will be a lot heavier. Electricity will be replaced by this new invention. This also means that we won’t use batteries anymore. Just a little bit of this strange fluid will be enough to replace 10 pairs of batteries. You can see that this invention is very positive for nature because less batteries results into less pollution. In the future this new fluid will also be used in the car industry. It will replace the gas and fuel that we use today. Continuing the car-topic, I think that everybody will drive the same car, only one type of cars will be produced and sold. By doing this, discrimination will no longer be a fact. So I can come to the conclusion that life in the future will be better than current life.
Powerful Women In the future all people will have more friends because no one is going to be selfish anymore. The people will see that you achieve more with honesty and respect than with lying for your own good. So eventually there will be world peace because there will be no more lies. Technology will be controlling everything. Even cleaning your house will be done by a computer. So housewives will be unnecessary and all women will go out to work. Their careers will be priority number one. A result of this situation is that 65% of the world leaders will be women. Men will be feeling attacked in their egos and will all be cissies. Another problem is that children will be abandoned by their parents and they will be put in child hotels. Child hotels are buildings that you can compare with shelters but more luxurious. Children will stay there all week without any contact with their parents because their parents are too busy with work. This means that children will only come home at weekends.

the future is … a lot of chances
Song about the future Greece In the year 2525 If machines are still alive If chips can survive They may find In the year 3535 Ain’t gonna tell no lies Everything you feel,do and say Is exactly what you feel today.
In the year 4545 Ain’t gonna need no lifting,no face cremes You won’t find a single flaw Beauty is what you hide within,no? In the year 5555 Your arms open in a hug,that’s life Your legs ready to run to meet other people No machine can teach you how to love or tear-tickle
In the year 6565 Ain’t gonna need to hide You’ll pick your friends Your words shall be what heart sends. In the year 7510 If God’s-a-coming he ought to tarry by then Maybe he’ll look around himself and say Guess it’s time for Revelations Day
In the year 8510 God shall smile in the open He’ll say I’m pleased where man is now He’s torn his world and built it again,no? In the year 9595 If memory is still alive All the past sadness shall leave And in its place lie nothing
Now it’s been 10,000 years Man has fought a billion fears There are only still a few But now their time is through Cause through eternal fight He has brought his world to light It was so far away But it’s come at last today
In the year 2525 If machines are still alive If chips can survive They may find In the year 3535 Ain’t gonna need to tell no lies Everything you think,do and say Is exactly what you feel today
the future is … maybe not real
