When did the distant future officially begin?

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?

1983 or earlier
