Cerebral Knievel: Groo the wanderer
Cerebral Knievel: Bloom county
EngineerAU: I was looking at an old issue of Mad from the 60s. They predicted by the turn of the century that Americans would be so fat that we'd drive scooters around grocery stores and that the Chinese would be the ones to take over. Which was really weird because at the time the Russians were our big enemy, grocery stores were maybe a quarter the size of the average store now, and people who needed help getting around were in wheelchairs.

drateR: Was thinking it was Al Jaffee, as I remember being amazed at the prediction. From the Al Jaffee wiki: "Sergio Aragones says of Jaffee, "He is brilliant at many things, but especially inventions.... Other actual inventions that have since come to pass had appeared earlier in Jaffee articles, such as telephone redial and address books (1961), snowboarding (1965), the computer spell-checker (1967), peelable stamps and multi-blade razors (1979), and graffiti-proof building surfaces (1982). "I could imagine those things," Jaffee told an interviewer."

Fubegra: I remember a feature that had a bunch of quit-smoking gizmos including "Lung Liner Tips" and explosive devices with randomly-placed fuses (once you smoked beyond the safety zone, you never knew when it was going to go BOOM).
