This guy is a joke.

He used to live a few miles from my house in Salt Lake. He spoke at local conventions on a regular basis. This man has some fascinating theories, but his ideas always turn out to be wrong. His predictions are more innaccurate than the ones made 40 years ago - like back in the 60's when everybody thought living in the year 2000 would be similar to The Jetsons cartoon show. Flying cars, robot maids, all that sh*t.

But it's not... so shut up Ray! Everybody knows the future will have better technology than we have in the present. It must have been hard coming to that conclusion. Dumbass. Everybody knows the future will have super hot b*tches, taco bell mind ordering, and John Connor as President! No, not Christian Bale. He'd be one cwazy sunuva b*tch. Even the midgets wouldn't survive. Even the midgets! :O
