It's not all that stupid. I mean, think about it. If you're never had any sort of radio device, then the idea of it would be odd to you.
Not that stupid, just a matter of not enough knowledge.
But funny!
I'll bet the guy that turned down the beatles was fired.

I wasn't neccessarily saying ecologists were behind Y2K predictions. I was saying that, especially since the 60s, the 70s and the 80s, there have been soo many "doomsday" scientists abd 'ecologists' that have predicted soo much crap that hasn't come true or near to comming true, that I was surprised I didn't see any of it.

But you're right. Quack 'scientists' 'doomsday-ecologists' or religious doomsday prophets shouldn't be looked at seriously anyway.

Seems too 'dumb' to be true for the most part.

manorrd, Ecologists had absolutley nothing to do with Y2K predictions. Nature doesn't care what year man fallaciously thinks it is.

Even funnier than the "scientists" premonitions about Y2K were doomsday insane Christians who thought the world was going to end.

But those were all quacks who were in the minority. No one cares about them. Really.

Now, Einstein, on the other hand. I care about what he had to say.

Hey bobert54321, Foch was French commander and later allied commander on the western front in world war one. bram makes some good points, in ww1 aircraft were used for recon over anything else in reality.

WE only think it's stupid and obvious because we already knew what happened.
Check out the predictions the people nowdays make, I bet none of them is accurate, but of course they'll say they have 'scientific' proof. I don't believe much in science, most of them are just theories that will be pushed back a few years from now.

Ha! I really love this one because of who it was said to:
"The concept is interesting and well-formed, but in order to earn better than a 'C', the idea must be feasible." -- A Yale University management professor in response to Fred Smith's paper proposing reliable overnight delivery service. (Smith went on to found Federal Express Corp.)

This one seems a little odd "Radio has no future. Heavier-than-air flying machines are impossible. X-rays will prove to be a hoax." -- William Thomson, Lord Kelvin, British scientist, 1899., did he really say those all in a row like that?

I think this one doesn't really belong:
"I see no good reasons why the views given in this volume should shock the religious sensibilities of anyone." -- Charles Darwin, The Origin Of Species, 1869.

He wasn't trying to predict anything, there really isn't a good reason to think that belief in religion and belief in evolution are mutually exclusive.

Yeah bobert's right, the French military commanders were really old-fashioned and that cost them.

"Everything that can be invented has been invented"

That plane quote was from WWII I think. If I remember right every1 had plains but the french and they build a defense (long bunker) to keep german out. so they felt safe... but the german just flew over it in PLANES

""Airplanes are interesting toys but of no military value." is just plainly stupid."

You have to remember that back then planes were just a novelty kind of thing. They couldn't carry much of anything, and they couldn't go much of anywhere.
