Nostradamus was a hack. There, I said it. All his predictions were shrouded in flowery prose and mysterious double-speak. This way, when any major historical event came along centuries after he died, you could just toss a bunch of his prophecies at the wall and see what would stick. Hitler being a jerk? Nostradamus totally called it (“A young child will be born of poor people. He who by his tongue will seduce a great troop.”). Alf being cancelled after four seasons? Nostradamus was all over that (“Another falls at night time. Conflict at Reims, London and a pestilence in Tuscany.”). Ya see? The only thing Nostradamus ever correctly predicted was that being a vague, beardy blowhard will make you a famous fortune teller.
Anyhow, the kids in this 1995 PSA are the opposite of Nostradamus. They talk extremely clearly and specifically about how the internet will be in the future (a.k.a. now), and they’re 100% accurate. This is all the more impressive given that when they shot their video 17 years ago, the world wide web was pretty much just a bunch of tubes and batteries strung together by dental floss.
