The Lunatic Fringe #5


Original Caption:

A member of staff at Lyon & Turnbull auction house holds up a copy of the book "Golf in the Year 2000 or What We Are Coming To" before its auction in Edinburgh, January 19, 2005. In a book published in 1892 with uncanny echoes of 16th century French seer Nostradamus, golfer Jack McCullogh also predicted that women would start dressing like men and do all the work while their menfolk took to the golf courses full-time.

I think I'll wait for the Kindle version to come out. ;)

Sadly the prediction in this book failed to take into account the fact that women would learn how to golf.

In the Year 2525, you'd be so strong you'd use your putter to drive...

Women wearing pants? Sounds like early, crazy sci fi to me.
