To every great invention, there seems to be a large amount pessimism that gets the rumor mill working overtime. Today, I'd like to take a jaunt back to yesteryear and re-live some of those off the wall thoughts and phobias. Some that come to mind are; microwave ovens were thought to be radioactive, the whole Y2K thing, the post 9/11 rush for rolls of plastic and duct tape, email would put the USPS out of business, the world was flat ... because the maps were, cordless phones will cause brain tumors for anyone that uses them, duck and cover (like that'll help), and nuclear bomb shelters just to name a few. If anyone would like to contribute to the list, toss your ideas in the comments section. I'm very interested to see what else everybody can come up with.
