I just have read an article which was published here but originally came from an English Newspaper. It tells us how we will look  in about 1000 years.

Now I am really happy that I will not be on our planet anymore to check if this prediction is true unless I am reborn in another body. Then I would prefer to be a cat living in my house because cats still look like today. There is hope, the cats from 1000 years ago haven't change their look until today.

So men will look like in the above picture in 1000 years ! Honnestly I prefer the George Clooney type which probably will be then considered by the female gent as an neandertaler.

He will have a smaller brain, (even more ???) more wrinkles, and fewer teeth

He will be taller at 1.90 to 2.10 (6-7ft) which must be a wrong calculation, because there are lots of men in the world with the same size already today. The scientists pretend it would be because of improved nutrition and medical science.

That his  intestins will get shorter I honestly don't mind.

He also will have smaller testicles which anyway are hidden in briefs, but maybe the string will run out of fashion.

Our most used extremities will change dramatically. Arms and fingers will get longer to reduce the need to reach too far and nerve endings in hands and fingers will increase which will be ideal for pickpockets who certainly will still operate in 1000 years.

We will eat softer food which needs less chewing and biting. We could even get our nutrition from liquids or pills in the future, which could mean less teeth and receded jaws. How awful then I would have to eat my beloved sushis or pasta or vegetables in pills ?

People will also have quadruple chins !  All in all wonderful news for plastic surgeons.

Everyone will have the same shape of nose because climate is having less influence on broad or narrow hooters thanks to air conditioning and central heating. I hope it's not an eagle nose !

Because of central heating and warm clothing we will be less hairy, that's the good news,  but there’ll be more wrinkles as a result of peering at our electronic devices.

We could end up with saggy turkey necks too because extra sun will cause loose skin and baggy eyelids. And there will be darker skin as people move around the planet and races mix. No sunbathes needed anymore.

Am I happy that I live in 2012 and not in 3012 !

Yip, I agree, I want to rather be a cat in my house too, not a human in 3012. I loved this post! Hope you're having a good weekend. (((Hugs))) Jo

I don't want to be here in 3012 unless I can be taller. But then it might take me 1000 years to finish all the sewing I want to do. And if I don't have time or money to go to the dentist it won't matter. I won't need all my teeth for chewing.
I think we will all be clones and not allowed cats or dogs as we will be fighting for space and food.

Hmmmmmm, the 1.000 year future fella doesn't look very healthy...
God bless you!

He looks scary! I wonder whether there will still be a need for legs though: if everybody were to own a car or something similar legs may go out of fashion as well!

By the way: happy anniversary! Sounds like you (and the monsters) had a nice dinner!

All this crap about evolution and nobody ever explains why we never developed WINGS... imagine how much we'd save on transport costs?

And imagine the mess our missing feathers would leave behind.

Also I wonder if we would develop black and white droppings, like birds...?

I agree with you!! Better to live in 2012! I'm not so much on the web those days cause there is a theater festival for 2 WE!!! So I saw already 3 shows with Pierre and my teachers' friends!!! Mélissa had problem with er teeth after the chirurgical intervention! She had to go to the doctor and take antibios! Tomorrow she should go to the stomato if she has always the problem!

Wow me too. You'd think that 1000 years would improve our looks but it looks like we will look even worse than the Neanderthals!
