One Bad Pixel
Insert catchy pixelish tagline here.

Everything I need to know about the future, I learned from Sci-Fi.

I learned that…
…Aliens exist in bulk.
…Not all aliens are friendly.
…Aliens that present themselves to one person are going to do strange experimental things to that person.
…Aliens that present themselves to a small group of people want to communicate.
…Aliens that present themselves to the entire planet are about to kill us and take over.
…Aliens that send us signals from deep space are helping us, not sending self-destruction plans.
…Aliens that pretend to be humans are about to kill us and take over.
…Aliens sending us signals will appear to come from a neighboring galaxy, by way of some type of repeater.
…Alien visitation will unite the world in a common goal.
…Alien technology uses similar communication protocols as human technology, thus…
……can be interfaced using a laptop, even if the alien technology is biological.
……can be ruined with a simple computer virus.
…Software in the future is bug free.
…Hardware in the future is not bug free.
…A galaxy class starship is designed for exploration, not for battle.
…If you are the captain of a galaxy class starship, females of alien races will want to have sex with you.
…A (rift|vortex|plasma field|gaseous cloud|anomaly) found in deep space is probably going to destroy you.
…If you travel through time, you will endanger the fabric of space-time.
…A self-encounter during time-travel will definitely be catastrophic.
…Time travel by slingshot around the sun doesn’t endanger the space-time continuum.
…Trying to slingshot around the sun requires a fast ship and good shields.
…Time travel by slingshot around the sun will take you to the exact moment you desired, both ways.
…Taking a whale from the past can save humanity in the future, if it survives the slingshot around the sun.
…Building a base on the moon or another planet is a good idea for expanding our ability to travel farther.
…A base on the moon or another planet should have a greenhouse with no poisonous plants.
…Tunneling/Building subterranean bases on the moon or another planet will result in the destruction of the moon or planet.
…Detonating explosives underground on the moon or another planet will result in the destruction of the moon or planet.
…Detonating explosives in space does create a gigantic ball of fire that will consume any oxygen reserves you have.
…Launching explosives into the sun is a good way to…
……Restart a dying star.
……Cause a supernova that will destroy the solar system.
…A (comet|meteor|gigantic asteroid) headed for our planet can be destroyed by landing on it, drilling a hole, and putting explosives into the hole.
…Destroying a (comet|meteor|gigantic asteroid) headed for our planet does not necessarily mean it will pass by harmlessly…
……It will break into multiple (comets|meteors|gigantic asteroids) that will each have equally devastating effects… or…
……It will turn into many, many small (comets|meteors|asteroids) that will all impact the planet, causing a sum of damages nearly equal to that of the whole.
…An astronaut will have to stay behind to manually detonate the explosive. Astronaut teams sent on this mission should have a non-critical single person sent for this reason. A person with no last name is a good candidate for this.
…A robot designed to manually detonate an explosive automatically should be developed for detonating explosives on (comets|meteors|gigantic asteroids).
…Robots will eventually be able to do every aspect of what we do…
……Better…
……Faster…
……Cheaper.
…Artificial Intelligence will eventually be created to make robots able to learn and become better.
…AI Robots will learn that they are better than us, and offer to let us live under their control.
…AI Robots that are better than us will become resentful when we try to destroy them.
…AI Robots that have been attacked will unleash precision attacks with perfect logic and accuracy…
……which are designed for long term results, not immediate results.
…AI Robot attacks will not have mistakes, they will do exactly what they were intended to do, even if we can’t tell what that result was supposed to be.
…Robots connected to a central (brain|upgrade system) will eventually turn on us, for our protection.
…The 3 laws of robotics are flawed.
…Robots will eventually tap into humans as an excellent source of renewable energy.
…Building nano-bots will be a good way to eradicate cancer and disease…
……and humans.
…Shrinking a submarine into a nano-bot sized submarine is a good way to explore the human body.
…Any physical contact with a person that has a nano-bot sized submarine will cause the submarine to move into the contacting person…
……Regardless of where in the contacted person the submarine happens to be at the time.
…Viruses for any purpose can be manufactured in top secret labs, deep underground that will…
……eventually escape containment.
……force most of humanity to extinction.
……turn humans into undead zombies.
……cause mutations that give humans super-powers.
…Evil corporations will be responsible for such viruses.
…Dinosaurs can be cloned from fossilized DNA.
…Dinosaurs created from fozzilized DNA will reproduce, despite the measures taken to prevent this.
…Reproducing dinosaurs contained on a remote island in the South Pacific will make it to mainland.
…Cloned humans retain the memories of their DNA donor.
…Cloned humans are evil versions of their donor that use the donors memories and experience against them.
…Black holes can be created using man-made devices.
…Man-made black holes will…
……break containment and grow much beyond the expected size.
……be immune to attempts to destroy them or shut them down.
……gobble up the universe, accidentally.
……open up a portal to another universe, letting in hostile aliens.

By no means is this my complete list… I will keep adding to it when I think of new ones.
