I have friends that do appliance repair and YouTube put a lot of people out of work because there are step by step video instructions and also realized how much they can save. Rentals keep them in business.

real currency may go by-by eventually.

Keys/padlocks will probably disappear...

belts, handbags/purses/wallets will become a thing of the past...and maybe a fashion statement....
No keys and padlocks? I can't conceive of why - ditto for no purses or wallets for that matter. TVs are disappearing because people don't watch TV as much as they used to - I wouldn't own one at all, but my wife insists. Never watch the thing myself.

Well, Al, Pontiacs and VW Beetles are already history. Then there's Ford sedans going away, and I expect more than a few GM and Fiat/Chrysler sedans will follow.

And if we're talking 50 years from now, internal combustion engines and maybe steering wheels will be exceedingly rare. Frankly, I wouldn't want to witness that.

Then there's our freedoms...

I thought the Buicks were also. Have the Hudsons gone the way yet?

Money

I think money as we know it today will soon be gone . Near everything is done on paper or by card already .

Yep, and some Buicks sold here are made in China.

Hey, Al, remember the Studebaker? And the Rambler? Then there was the Plymouth, the DeSoto and the Edsel.

I learned to drive in dad's Rambler American and graduated on a Scout 4 banger 4 speed with hubs on the front wheels that had to be manually turned in to really get stuck in Yooper mud holes.
Dad had my younger brother and I begin driving by sitting on his lap and steering. Soon as our feet could hit the 3 pedals the real driving began.

One might guess, with the head start we have already, stick shifts will also be gone in 50 yrs..
