A cute, humorous and largely accurate 1995 video made by a class of Helena, Montana, 5th graders attempts to predict what the internet will be used for by the time they get to college (roughly 2003). And you know what? They pretty much got everything right, the Sideshow reports. Yes, even in 1995, 5th graders knew that the modern-day internet was destined to be dominated by cats.
“Hey, why should I be on the internet?” asks one of the Ray Bjork Elementary School students in the video.
“Well, by the time I’m in college, the internet will be our telephone, television, shopping center, and workplace.”
“And it’s already got more stuff on it than you could possibly imagine.”
