It isn't a slideshow, but I'm still having trouble figuring out WTF the article is trying to communicate.

Maybe it's just too early.

I desperately need the snore-cancelling earbuds. I've asked you for realistic jetpacks and flying cars before, and was polite when they never arrived.

But if I go one more night with my chainsaw-sounding redhead, I'm going to demand some answers. SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY.

Here is my prediction: alarmless waking clock

In 10 years we will have a device that will stimulate parts of your brain to bring you back to consciousness instead of waking you in an uncomfortable fashion via alarms.

No, it's a shiatty, shiatty page design.

It looks like they are trying to say they were correct even though they're really grasping at anything they can and trying to assemble things from different parts.

Each 'section' has three pictures - what they predicted in 2003, what things are like now, what they predict they will be like in 2023.

And, yeah, it's a really stupid layout.

See, after a few minutes, I figured that out, but it still made no sense somehow.

I aced my SAT verbal section way back when, but TFA is just goddamn crap.

F*cking retarded page layout.

Anyways, did they really, honestly, truly think that sunglasses would be "retro cool" by 2013??

Actually wait, their page layout makes total sense now.

Go to the source of the problem and get a sleep study done. If it's sleep apnea, you'll both sleep better. And your partner is less likely to die sleeping.
