Dude, **** aristotle.  Aristotle used his popularity to shoot down not only a heliocentric model of the solar system, but also the idea of atoms in 400 bc.  Instead he said that the earth is made of earth, fire, wind, and water; and that the stars orbit on cyrstal spheres.   
   
Aristotle, I hate you.

"Computers in the future may weight no more than 1.5 tons."
Have you ever seen the Titan supercomputer?
This ************ uses computers the size of a house! I mean, just look at it! It covers 4,352 ft^2 (404 m^2).
It has (theoretical) 27 petaFLOPS. That's 27000000 gigaFLOPS.
A single core processor has a theoretical 10 gigaFLOPS
And I'm pretty sure it weighs over a ton

Do not just disregard that link. The video displayed was rendered on _____, which had _____ gigabytes of _____.
It took 40 years to render. This isn't some tiny little experiment, this is a full-scale simulation.

It is as beautiful as it is terrifying.

Well to be fair to the last quote, back then computers were huge, there was no internet and their only function was running complicated mathematical equations.

"Lol Sony, that contraption will never sell. Go ahead and make it, but we'll have nothing to do with it." -Nintendo dismissing the idea of the Playstation.

Nah, Nintendo didn't want to work with Sony anymore because the way the contract negotiations were going Sony would have too much power over the medium, so Nintendo cut the deal short and went to Philips. Eventually they stopped developing the CD add-on for the SNES entirely and Sony and Philips both went on to use the things they learned from Nintendo to create their own home consoles. Sony created the Playstation, with a slightly modified SNES gamepad as its controller and Philips created the CD-i.

Huh. I had always been under the impression that Sony pitched the idea to Nintendo, and Nintendo dismissed them. Then when the split-up happened, Nintendo allowed Sony to keep the Playstation, believing it wouldn't do so hot, which is what I was (loosely) alluding to in my comment.

Nah, Nintendo wanted a CD add-on for their SNES, because the CD format was getting a lot of attention. So they talked to both major distributors, Sony and Philips. At forst they worked with Sony for a while and they created a working prototype and all, but the contract Sony wanted was not very favorable towards Nintendo, so Nintendo eventually went with Philips. After a while they just dismissed the whole idea of a CD add on but allowed Philips and Sony both to keep the assets, 'cause they're nice guys like that.

So the Playstation and CD-i happened. Thanks to Nintendo, we now have Playstation. :D

I thank you for correcting me. When I tell my jokes, I try to have my facts straight first.

Thank you for correcting me. ^.^

P.S. Do you have a link to that information? I'd like to read up on it for my my own memory banks.

Most of these aren't even stupid, the reason why they're almost all attached to somebody like the Wright brothers is because in their day and age it couldn't be imagined to be accomplished with what they had available to them. The people who prove them wrong are regarded so highly because they essentially give a big middle finger to that thought and then go on to prove them wrong with doing something we hadn't seen before.

I get the point of the post, and it is fun to look back on these people who couldn't see the future and smile at how wrong they were but I wouldn't call them stupid or even short-sighted. Most of the accomplishments were seen executed succesfully decades after these people said they wouldn't be viable.

I dare any of you to put a large sum of money behind something that's unproven and undone, because that's what is essentially happening here.

tl;dr yeah, it's funny now. hindsight is 20/20 and all that.

I agree that no one wants to hear actors talk. They never have anything valuable to say, they only endorse causes that pay theme enough money. They have no clue what they're saying, as long as they get paid they don't care.
