💡 Ideas That Could Seem Strange in 100 Years

Airplanes were the fastest way to get anywhere.

Humans would drive cars – risking safety every day just to get around.

Most people were required to go into an office from the hours of 9am to 5pm, 5 days a week.

When we got sick, we had to go into a doctor's office to be evaluated. Often times the doctor had to take blood from our bodies to determine the cause of sickness. 

Public education was handled by state and local governments (not publicly traded technology companies).

People paid thousands of dollars to spend 4 years attending more school to acquire a piece of paper as a form of social proof of their competency.

We spent hours a day staring at tiny, handheld screens. Kids too.

Every summer, our forests would catch on fire.

Subterranean developments did not exist (all new homes were still being built above ground).

Currencies and internet access were heavily regulated by the government.

When your internet wasn't working, an internet service provider would send a van out to your house to drill holes in your walls and give you new hardware.

Psychedelics were illegal.
