When did the distant future officially begin? @ 01:27 pm

Right now I am annoyingly: nostalgic nostalgic

Since certain past years and dates (especially starting with 2015) sometimes still sound futuristic to me when I think about them, I thought I'd make a poll about it.

Poll #2062591 Forwards to the Future

What is the earliest year that you have, at some point in your life, thought of as the distant future?

I think my 1, 9, 2, and 0 keys want a break now. :)

(I say that right before I have to type all those years one more time for the tags on this entry...)
