There will be an acute shortage of oil, and good old MS-DOS games won't run on new M$ OSes...

Petrol in the UK will cost 10 a litre and 8 of that will be tax.
Canada will be the world's superpower because of the immense amount of water in Canada.
Water will be as valuable as oil is now.
Hardly anyone will have a car because companies took to long to find alternative fuels to run their cars on.
I will be a mountie.

"I will be a mountie."

Very commendable. Hence, no doubt, your choice of "Maintiens le Droit" for a forum name.

Without checking for myself, I'd like to know if you can buy crystal balls on E-Bay?

My minions of rat-spiders will take over the world, and I will force everyone to talk like Jimmy Savill! Muhahahahaha!

America shall own most of the world. Those pesky terrorists get everywhere you know.
The EU member states will have closer relations.
The UK will use the Euro along with every other EU country.
England will get to then lose every world cup final due to penalties.
Adam will ease up on talking crap.
As said oil production will decrease which may lead to determined efforts to find alternatives.
Humans (by which I mean the Americans) will have landed on Mars.
From the previous point, a handful of nutters will believe that they didn't actually go and provide stupid conspiracy theories as to that effect.
Russia will have a more dominant role in world affairs since her economy will improve.
China will be the world's largest industrial power. Learn your Chinese.

Helloooo... where have you been lately, living under a rock? In twenty years, J.K. Rowling will own the world.

Are you doubting the power of General Rowling and her one billion-strong fan base/army? They are RABID, and she brain-washed them while they were young. Bow to the Row!

You can expect the Russian population to have dropped by a quater, and by 2060 i think they will have found a new form of government, third times the charm, they've never had it easy...

***Adam will ease up on talking crap***

Now you're talking crap.....can you realistically see that ever happening?
