When you get a little older, the years just seem to fly by.
That's the case for me, as I find it hard to believe that it's almost 2008. Growing up, I can remember when a book like 1984 and a movie such as 2001: A Space Odyssey were science fiction.
Now, a lot of the "Big Brother" mentality in 1984 is surfacing, and we have people wandering around space as if it were their own back yards.
I'd rather stick to the problems here on Earth as we head into the new year, and not worry about asteroids striking Mars or other such things.
