These are mostly just plain weird: http://publicdomainreview.org/collections/fashions-of-the-future-as-imagined-in-1893/

Probably better guesses than most tech predictions, though.

Triumph of the Dungeon Master!

Ah, how I have come to love that sense of accomplishment and victory that I get when I pull the wool over the eyes of a clever player character. What DM Triumphs have you had?

Some of mine:
1. Finally killing an incredibly powerful, lucky, annoying player's character.
2. Finally achieving a TPK (Total Party Kill)
3. Finally achieving a TPK using only traps
4. Finally working out how to make it so that d**n wizard doesn't steal the spotlight all the d**n time.

Language stuff, because that's what today is, apparently...

http://zompist.com/kitlong.html <- A nice blog post on conlangs, complete with a nice graphic that I wish I had had back when I was learning Arabic on what all those fun words like epiglottal, pharyngeal, and frictive actually mean in relation to you.

http://mentalfloss.com/article/31904/12-letters-didnt-make-alphabet and this is from Val on letters that didn't make the English alphabet, because apparently we didn't actually deserve two letters to describe the two ways of pronouncing "th."  We are unworthy... :c
