The truth behind TV series and movies
Hey guys. Throwing some stuff to conspiracy theories let's play a game. The bottomline is simple. Rewind a few years in your life and think about a movie or a TV serie that was fiction or science fiction and turned out to be real.

An example:

I remember when i was young a TV serie called BlueThunder. A super police helicopter. WOW... by that time i was amazed with all that carzy hi tech gear in that Heli!!!
A few years later when Gulf war started the US army had a secret weapon... the Apache.


Think and try to give one example.


Cheers
Draco

Re: The truth behind TV series and movies
Well, I can remember how back in the day of the home phones we thought it would be cool to have communicators like they used on Star Trek that we could use anywhere...now everyone has PDAs that make it look like child's play!

And how about that video phone call from space in 2001? Skype makes that concept possible now!

Do you think there is ever a chance we will have fold-up cars like on the Jetsons? That would solve a lot of parking problems!

Re: The truth behind TV series and movies
Well... Read in an auto magazine that AUDI was successfull in a test with a non human guided car. Basically a GPS guided car. The article was not very specific. Probably we'll not wait that much to enter our cars and say the magic words "Engine... start. Drive to.... somewhere" saw some movies with that feature. rockon

Re: The truth behind TV series and movies
The main point here, and that's waht i'm trying to light up into discussion is, how far is the info (whatever kind of) passed through some movies from reality?

First thing that comes to mind:

The Lone Gunmen Air Date - 4 March 2001
flying a plane into the World Trade Center

we all know what happened a few months later...

I remember watching George Wendt as Norm on "Cheers" drinking beer.

Then, years later, I saw George Wendt drinking a beer at a restaurant in Burbank.

Crazy.

In what manner throwing a plane into a tower or an oil split has to do with life imitating art? Sorry. I'm confused about this one.

Anyway... everybody talks about wikileaks that throw some info that we already suspect or know, bla bla bla... diversion manouvre, bla bla bla....

But think about this.... what if the real "wikileaks" comes out with the real hard and cold facts before it happens whithout any one of us suspect of it?

Except your timeline is off. Blue Thunder came out in 1982. Although it didn't enter service until 1986, the prototype Apache(YAH-64) first flew in 1975. Here are pictures and other documents from before 1982
