Back to the Future II predictions that are true today

AUSSIE film buffs are among the first in the world to celebrate “Back to the Future II” Day!

In the 1989 classic film, teen Marty McFly and nutty scientist Dr Emmett Brown travel to the future – and the date they travel forward to is October 21, 2015.

The movie made many predictions about life in the year 2015.

Here are a few that have come true:

Big-screen televisions: Yes
There are a number of scenes in the movie with characters watching screens very much like the oversize ones we have today.

Video calls: Yes
In the movie, the future Marty McFly has a video conversation with his bosses using his TV. With FaceTime, Skype, Snapchat and more available to us now, this one has definitely come true.

Hands-free video games: Yes
Two kids are shocked that Marty McFly had to use his hands to play a video game in Cafe 80’s. Today, hands-free video games are possible thanks to products like Xbox Kinect

Video glasses: Yes
Remember the high-tech goggles Marty McFly’s kids wear to the dinner table? They are surprisingly similar to Google Glass don’t you think?

Hoverboard: Not quite
There was that Lexus ad that showed a hoverboard in action at a skatepark – but really it just isn’t ready for commercial use yet.

Khloe Kardashian’s breaks her silence on Lamar

KHLOE Kardashian has released her first official statement following the hospitalisation of estranged husband Lamar Odom.

The NBA star was found unresponsive in a Las Vegas brothel last week and was yesterday transferred from Sunrise Hospital to Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.

On her website, Khloe described the past week as “incredibly difficult”.

“I am so thankful to family, friends, and fans, who have sent nothing but prayers and well wishes to Lamar,” she wrote.

“You can never be prepared for an experience like this, but without the outpouring of love and endless prayers that Lamar has received and the strength I was given from my loved ones, it would have been difficult to endure. Thank you for your continued support. God is great!!!”

“I also want to take a moment to thank everyone at Sunrise Hospital, including the amazing doctors and nurses for their kindness and diligent work. Under their amazing care, incredible strides have been made.”

Kaley Cuoco’s ex Ryan Sweeting wants spousal support

Looks like Kaley Cuoco’s divorce with Ryan Sweeting isn’t going to be as smooth as everyone thought.

Despite having a pre-nuptial agreement, court documents filed last week by Ryan reveal he has requested spousal support from The Big Bang Theory actress. He also requested the court terminates Kaley’s ability to receive support.

Ryan is also asking Kaley to pay for his attorney’s fees, something she listed would be paid by both parties, as per their prenup.

Interestingly, the tennis star’s legal filing lists a different date of separation to Kaley’s. Ryan states September 25, 2015 as the date of separation, as opposed to September 3, 2015 which Kaley cited.

Kaley reportedly has a net worth estimated at approximately $45 million, while Ryan is reportedly worth approximately $2 million.
