I do not believe it.

Makes me think (this is the 'Random' part of Silly, Random & Fun) - people born in 1980 are the only people alive today who will turn 45 years old in the year that's the square of their age (45 x 45 = 2025).

81 yrs or 981-- makes no difference to most of us.
I don't expect to be around 11 yrs from now.
I've considered quitting while I'm ahead of the game, relatively speaking.

Missed it by that much---900 years.

No, I never do. Why is that?

Can't say I have.

I will not be here so no, I don't ever think about how the year 3,000 is literally 81 years away. Not even that 81 years from now it will literally be 2,100 (not corrected to now thanks for the heads up JimG

Yeah, math is not my favorite subject, but now that I have a calculator in my pocket almost all of the time... 2019 + 81 = 2100. The year 3000 - current year 2019 = 981 years. Those damn pesky details. I am 99% positive I will not live to see 3000, and I'd prefer not so see 2100. I do remember being with my siblings when we were children, fascinated by the fact that we'd likely be alive in the year 2000. This must have been in the mid 1960s. It seemed so far away then. And now here it is, 19 years past 2000, and we're all (my siblings) still alive, and worse yet, we're old!

So,where's the flying cars,and jet packs you strap on and fly through the clouds? Self driving cars are here(but still unreliable). Has any past predictions been close in actual use?

Yes, that is indeed unbelievable. Would you accept 981 years?
