From The Statistical Statistics Department:

The Federal Bureaus of Prisons: says 92.9% non-whites and 7.1% whites were incarcerated as of 21 December 2019, therefore it’s a racist system. Oh wait…

The “For Every 100 Girls/Women” chart is interesting. Links to stats backing it up are here [via].

A Prediction from 1968

Wednesday, 18 December 2019

By the turn of the century, chances are you won’t recognize the familiar telephone. Based on services already in use or on the drawing boards, you can expect some pretty far-out developments.

For example, Picturephone see-while-you-talk service, already in limited use, might well be offered in full color and three dimensions. With it, you could do the family grocery shopping, look at the new cars, or buy a new hat without leaving the house.

Electronic switching equipment now in trial use, will call you back when a busy line you have called is free, or transfer your calls to another phone while you’re away from home.

BTW, that’s Jane Jetson, not Judy…
