Just in time for the 50th anniversary of the alleged Roswell alien crash comes this witty but slight comedy from Addams Family director Barry Sonnenfeld. In fact, Men in Black opens with titles that are strikingly similar to Sonnenfeld’s earlier film, as well as a jaunty soundtrack by Danny Elfman and an appearance by Carel Struycken (Addams’ Lurch) as an alien, making it briefly feel like some sort of weird Addams offshoot.

Before I get into my predictions, let see how I did last year, when I wrote Technologies That Will Rock 2010.

Roger Anderson started the Jolly Roger Telephone, which lets users start a three way call with the service so they can listen gleefully as the bot rambles on. It’s designed to provide entertainment and empowerment for everyone who has grown weary of the phone calls. Its first question of the telemarketers is often, “Is this a real person?”.
Because it takes time to manufacture a vaccine. This isn a case of copy and paste and magically vaccines! Considering cost isn an issue at this point because the government is paying for the doses, the limitations of production isn artificial delayed for shits and giggles.
