they almost always go together

actually, one has to be very thin to pull off low rise jeans...some normal weight people look much fatter with them on and with obesity at its all time high in america, at 64 percent or so, the design is not quite the best

too many to pick, but one i'm sure about is nanomachinery... but it'll be a few years before that becomes totally evident :)

electricity has to be in there... agriculture is good... writing was a big one... then probably something by Ronco...
