It's hard to believe that it's already been 30 years since Back to the Future came out. It seems like only yesterday we were hitting 88 miles per hour and almost boning our mom's. But, now that the spell of time has had it's way with it, let's see what Back to the Future got right.
Self Lacing Shoes
Made to be a fundraiser for The Michael J Fox Foundation that helps to treat people with Parkinson's, Nike helped to release actual self-lacing sneakers. When you think about it, not too futuristic a concept. But, cool, right?
So, leave it to the Japanese to actually go and make this thing. It actually floats on water, and can carry human people. Believe it or not, the hoverboard is here. Now let's see if they'll actually ever sell any of them...
It's crazy to think that back when BTTF2 came out they were able to predict the existence of Elijah Wood, even though everyone knows that it wasn't until 2001 that Peter Jackson discovered him in a hole in the ground in New Zealand. Way to go Zemekis, way to call that one!
A Cruel and Merciless God
Sure, the Tannen family is always getting the rough end of the deal all the way through all three films. But leave it to Back to the Future to call how much our cruel and merciless God would throw Biff into the inescapable wind of D-List status that none shall ever escape. May he have mercy on us, in his name we pray.
