Shift happens.

Something that we were shown in college today. It’s a bit lengthy, but if you actually consider some of the points… it’s quite an eye-opener to the amazing and evolving world we live in.  Stick your speakers on for full effect.

My personal favorite: “It’s estimated that a week’s work of New York Times contains more information than a person was likely to come across in a lifetime in the 18th Century”.

There’s a US version updated for 2007 with more up-to-date facts available, but this older, UK version has cooler music.

    Ooooooooo I liked that the music really got me into it, i went out of the lounge and into the dining room just to listen.

    It will be funny to see in 2050 how much of this is true, because if you look at all of the old films about the year 2000 we are all flying around in hovercars with robots and stuff.

    I thought that was good but then i thought… what was the point of that presentation, hmm because people will probably forget half of what it said, and half was random facts people will just drop into conversation to make them sound clever =p

    Anyway it was cool and interesting.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Lol I know, I used some of the facts today in a General Studies essay 😛 But that’s not the point, you aren’t supposed to remember every single fact… just remember how amazed you were at how quickly we’re advancing.

    The music is from the last scene of Last of the Mohecans, btw.
