Futurama (in the World's Fair Sense)

A fun bit of "the future will have jetpacks!" level speculation from 1911. Some bits of it, like where he predicts the X-ray/MRI or pizza delivery are pretty cool. Other bits like free education for everybody to the university level, complete elimination of rats, or public transportation that gets you from your suburban home to your downtown office in 10 minutes and costs a penny- well those bits make me feel disappointed in our time.
