I Googled my street address and the only match was "Mac's Convenience Store" in Kalamazoo, Michigan. This is a weird coincidence because I have been seeing a plethora of Michigan and other out-of-state license plates lately. Clearly this is a conspiracy to take over the former Southern capital, and I for one will not stand for this northern aggression a second time.

I also Wikipedia'd "2029" and found out some interesting predictions for that year.

Predicted events
* Friday, April 13 — The asteroid 99942 Apophis (previously better known by its provisional designation 2004 MN4) will pass within 30,000 km (18,600 mi) of the Earth, very briefly appearing as bright as 3rd magnitude. A possibility exists that Apophis could go through a 400 m wide "keyhole" on this pass which would have put Apophis on a collision course with the Earth in 2036 [1].

* Music by Buddy Holly will enter the public domain this year.

* The FBI will have permission to reveal to the public the Top Secret papers on John F. Kennedy's assassination. (!!!!!!)

* The second of two Metonic twin eclipses will happen on December 20. The first twin eclipse will occur on December 21, 2010. The twin eclipses are separated by 19 years.

* Raymond Kurzweil predicts machine intelligence will equal one human brain intelligence as stated in his work on Futurism The Singularity Is Near based on Moore's Law.

2029 in fiction
Computer and video games
* Deus Ex (2000): JC Denton's "assigned birth date" is March 17.

* Shadow of the Ninja also known as Kage and Blue shadow the events unfold of Emperor Garuda taking over, and the ninjas overthrowing him.

* Ghost in the Shell: Public Security Section 9 is established.

* The Terminator (1984): Kyle Reese and a Terminator are sent back in time to 1984.

* Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991): Two Terminators, a T-800 and a T-1000, are sent back in time to 1995 to, respectively, protect and kill John Connor as a ten year old child.

* Six Feet Under ("Everyone's Waiting," 2005): Keith Charles is shot and killed by robbers seizing the contents of his armored truck.
* Race to Mars, a fictional show about a manned expedition to Mars, takes place between 2029 and 2030.

None of this matters though because the world is going to end in 2012 anyway. crap. that doesn't leave much time now that I think about it....
