    I'm looking forward to eating at Cafe '80s or, if I'm press for time, heating up one of those yummy Pizza Hut pizzas in the Hydrator.

    So, expect the Cubs to win the world Series in a few years? Also, Hollywood is going to need to stat making a LOT of Jaws movies to get up to Jaws 19 before 2015....oh, and flying cars.
