      I like your questions but honestly, you can improve them x-(

      March 16, 2010 at 6:55 pm

      I the same question as you. “Will there be flying cars?”

    • Mr. Sam
      March 16, 2010 at 7:53 pm

      Is that really 30-40 minutes work?

      • Ranvir
        March 17, 2010 at 3:21 pm

        I mean does it matter?

        Just Suppose that Alfie [just suppose] does High Qualtity work and spends only 10 minutes on it.

        • Mr. Sam
          March 17, 2010 at 8:33 pm

          Yep, it matters. The people who spend a long time on their homework produce really good quality work. The Sujinnas, the Rosnas, the Amys, the Nikkis, the Lucas, the Sashas the Micks of this world all spend the right amount of time on their work… which is why their work is always top-quality. Always. It’s not luck, it’s hard work. Plain and simple.

    • Amy
      March 17, 2010 at 5:48 pm

      I also agree with your questions mainly about the flying cars and the way pollution will be in the future. I really am wondering though what made you ask things like about games or sports?

      Hi Miki,

      Some of your questions are really interesting, like “will there be new animals?” or “will there be new subjects?”. Did you know that most university courses that are studied in 2010 did not exist in 2000?

      Will we need to live like a long time ago because we have used too much of things??
      Will people be fatter or will they won’t be able to move because we(humans) made a special chair that could move how you want I to and does every thing for you??

    March 16, 2010 at 6:28 pm

    I bet lots of people have the same questions that I have.
    My questions are
    1. What will the future look like
    2. Will the world end
    3. How will technology develop

    Who has similar questions to me well… My mom and my dad
    Well I have reading threw the comments and nobody had done their homework so not yet but I will reply to this comment telling you why L8ER. Well yes I can predict that technology will develop in the next 100 years for good or for bad. Other than that I can’t say how the world will end or what it will look like that is entirely up to us. The last one will be answered later when people comment on my comment.

      Hello Johann I’m pretty sure you can come up with more questions.

    • Sasha
      March 16, 2010 at 6:54 pm

      I like the question “How will technology develop?”

    • Mr. Sam
      March 16, 2010 at 7:57 pm

    • Mr. Sam
      March 16, 2010 at 7:58 pm

      Hi Karam,

      These are very interesting questions. The whole robots issue is fascinating but also quite scary. I have something to show you, remind me tomorrow.

      Mr. Sam

    • 17lucam
      March 17, 2010 at 4:48 pm

      Will there be a way to stop to global warming?

      • 17lucam

        Sorry take away the:
        My questions are:

  9. Sasha
    March 16, 2010 at 6:53 pm

    I have quite a lot of questions but some of them has already been asked.
    Here are the ones that haven’t:

    1. Are people going to start caring about the earth or is it continue being like this where no one cares?

    2. How much pollution will there be?

    3. How is the future going to look like with all the pollution?

    4. Will there be wars for recourses for e.g water?

    5. Will there be flying cars in the future?

    6. Will game consoles have 3D features in them?

    I asked my cousin if he has any questions about the future and he said in his school his teacher showed him a video about how the future is going to look like and I asked him what the video was called but he wasn’t sure because it was a long time ago and his teacher would probably wouldn’t remember. He said there are going to be refrigerators that could talk to you, the tables would tell you what was on the table, there are going to be walls that tell what mood you are in for e.g. if you are angry the colour of the wall will change in to something calm so you your self would be calm, and the table will also have a touch screen so for e.g while you are eating you could use the internet or play games. My cousin also said that in Korea there is only one but it is a prototype and he also said the house could blow up because it uses to much power/ electricity/ energy. BUT MY COUSIN IS NOT SURE BECAUSE HE SAW THESE THINGS IN A VIDEO HIS IT TEACHER SHOWED HIM.

    • Mr. Sam
      March 16, 2010 at 8:00 pm

      Hi Sasha,

      Your last sentence is very important. Your cousin is not sure, nobody is sure. We can guess, we can make predictions we can read trends, but we can’t say anything for sure.

      Mr. Sam

      • Sasha
        March 17, 2010 at 5:03 pm

        Thats true Mr Sam, No one can know for sure what the future will look like.

    Here are some of my questions about the future:

    We there be life on Earth?

    Will there be robots and nano-technology everywhere?

    Will there be finnally world peace or will there be even more wars?

    What animals will be extinct and what will survive?

    Will there be technologies like holograms and virtual reality?

    Would there be more sports and games?

    Will poverty be gone?

    Will life expectancy be higher or lower?

    These are the main questions I have. (I don’t want to add to many boring questions.

  17. Ping Ping
    March 17, 2010 at 4:17 pm

    The future can either be the best place or the worst place depends on our own actions. We could destroy it by throwing loads and loads of trash and killing animals and people and continuing our actions. We can change the earth by growing more trees and becoming more dependant on renewable energy. I have some questions that can either change the earth in a good or bad way:

    1. Will there be robots in the future?
    2. What will happen to the oil in the future?
    3. Is there going to be more diseases and flus?
    4. Are robots be replacing humans in war?
    5. Is bycatching ever going to stop?
    6. Will there be real flying cars?
    7. Will there be forests?

    All these could be answered in and few decades but there is no right or wrong answer right?

    Here are my questions:
    Will there be any peace in the world?
    Will the world ever know what we have done for us and this planet?
    Is there a hope and way we can stop all this?
    Do we need wars to have peace?
    Will robots be the new generation of technology?
    Will we discover untold creatures and animals using our newest modern
    Will there be more separate countries some countries have too much power?
    Is nations going to fight each other for natural resources?
    Do we have a good or bad future waiting for us?
