We're in the future!
In 1989 the film Back to the Future II was released. I had seen the first movie in which Marty McFly goes back in time to 1955. In this second movie McFly is transported forward to 2015 – in particular, Oct. 21, 2015. As in today. The really nerdy can look at all the things the movie got wrong, or all the things it got right. Or you can leave that task to someone else – the NPR program Marketplace Tech did a series on the movie's accuracy in predicting the future.
