This is a fun article on what boys in the ’60s thought life would be like today. What do you think Scouting will be like in another 50 years? I’m hoping #8 comes true, really soon!
Originally posted on Bryan on Scouting:
At Boy Scout camps in the year 2000, milk doesn’t spoil, knots are rarely used and backpacks have been replaced by rockets that deliver camping gear in “near-zero time.”
That’s according to the 1960 predictions of Nostradamus, at least.
In the February 1960 issue of Scouting magazine, there’s a fun, tongue-in-cheek article that channels the prognosticating ability of that 16th-century French seer to predict what the world — and Scouting — will be like in 2000. Suffice it to say there are a few hits and many, many misses.
