Take a look at what a nine-year-old thought of 2016, twenty years ago

Twenty years ago a nine-year-old wrote a short essay about life in 2016 and it says a lot about this guy’s imagination.
Take a look at what a nine-year-old thought of 2016, twenty years ago

The essay has been kept safe by his mom who gave it to Christopher as a gift for his 29th Birthday and he uploaded to Reddit.

The post has been viewed over 239,000 times.

The short description of our present day includes cars that float, schools made of funny shapes and computer desks with weird pencils.

He also mentions robot policemen.

Finally the young Christopher proclaimed that the New York Giants will win this year’s Superbowl and the Dallas Cowboys will never win the SuperBowl again.

A bit of a grudge against the Dallas Cowboys we reckon.

We don’t think this guy should go pro with predicting the future as none of these things have come true, except for the Dallas Cowboys not winning the SuperBowl lately.

We bet he feels good about that one, but it is funny to look at the stuff people thought would be around by now.

He should make another list for the next twenty years and see what he expects to happen by 2036.

Maybe we will have floating cars and robot policemen by then -but we highly doubt it!

The note reads:

"Twenty years from today, it will be 2016 and there will not be cars that ride on the ground. The cars will float in the air. The schools won’t be made from blocks of stone and they will be in funny looking shapes.

There will be robot policemen and cashiers and other kinds of people. There won’t be normal desks, the desks will be like a computer with a weird kinds of pencils.

In the 2016 I will be 29-years-old and my sister will be 32-years-old and my mom will be 63-years-old.

Twenty years from today the New York Giants will win the SuperBowl and the Dallas Cowboys will never win the SuperBowl again in NFL history."
