Nose Dive On The City

Nose Dive On The City- Tulio Crali (1939)

Tulio Crali, mort en 2000, fut certainement le dernier grand peintre futuriste. On retrouve dans sa peinture les concepts de Fedele Azari dans "Perspective in Flight". Ce tableau peint en 1939 sera une source d'inspiration pour de nombreux artistes américains du Pop Art. Mais la technique de déstructuration du cockpit, sa disparition fusion au sein des grattes-ciel, ne sera jamais égalée.

Predictions of the future never seem to come true


Already tired of all those predictions people are making at the start of 2007? Don't worry - most of them probably will never come true. At least, that's the opinion of Cynthia Crossen in the Wall Street Journal (free feature), who explains that even the smartest people throughout history have been unable to predict the future: "If you are tempted to make predictions about the future at this time of year, consider keeping them to yourselves. History can so easily make a fool of you."

Among the silliest predictions cited by Cynthia in the Wall Street Journal:

(1) In 1911, Richard Lucas of the Royal College of Surgeons in England predicted that some day human beings in the future would become one-toed. "The small toes are being used less and less as time goes on, while the great toe is developing in an astonishing manner."

(2) In 1929, a New York City haberdasher, John David, predicted that "the well-dressed man of 2020 will wear shorts for every occasion except formal events."

(3) In 1942, the associate editor of Better Homes and Gardens predicted that the housewife of the future would know how to repair radios, irons, lamps, washing machines and cars.

(4) In 1925, Harvey W. Corbett of the American Institute of Architects said, "Fifty years hence automobile traffic will have entirely disappeared from the surface thoroughfares of New York City, and people will be shot through tubes like merchandise."

(5) In 1943, the research director of the Consolidated Vultee Aircraft Corp. predicted that hybrid auto-airplanes "will fly through the air and then fold their wings like a housefly and run along the road."

(6) In 1914, Sir Henry Blake, a British government official, predicted the rise of the noiseless city, where rubber would replace brick, stone and asphalt as street paving.

(7) In 1911, an English clergyman, William Henry Fitchett, suggested that war would become an historical oddity: "There will, in the near future, be a revolt, both of the reason and the conscience of the civilized world, from the state of armed peace which at present prevails, with its ever-multiplying fleets of Dreadnoughts and its universal training for war. The appliances for war have grown to such a scale that war itself will be recognized as impossible."

I do not write many comments, but after browsing through a few of the remarks here "Nose Dive On The City".
I do have 2 questions for you if it's okay. Could it be only me or do some of these remarks look like they are written by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are posting on other online social sites, I would like to keep up with you. Could you post a list of the complete urls of your public pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

I'm impressed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that's both equally educative and amusing,
and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.
The problem is something too few men and women are
speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I came across this during my search for something relating to this.
