Think back to when you were a kid. Such a date as 2015 would have been in the depths of Eagle magazine's future archives. It would have been a projected date for something shown by Tomorrow's World's Raymond Baxter, bless him. The old, posh Spitfire pilot telling you of things to come.
2015...sheesh. We'd all be wearing roll-knecks in fabrics that needed no washing, wearing communicators on our wrists and flying around in personal hovercraft that made a noise like the opening track on Moody Blues' On the Threshold of a Dream.
So far the roll-kneck has come and gone, sweaty armpits still need washing and we have only just got a wrist phone, my son has one. Personal skycraft like cars? Dream on.
Damn, it's over 50 years since I first heard the Beatles!
