We don’t need to see bones to know dinosaurs and people have been around for a long time. It's science. We get it.
Art is still in, but we see it all on Instagram, not in stuffy museums. And nobody cares about history anymore. If it wasn’t made in the last 24 hours, there’s no attention span for it.
It’s hard to believe banks are even still a thing. Tellers in particular should have gone out of style with the advent ATMs, but somehow, they’re still hanging on. Not for long, though, we predict.
Anyone and everyone will taste food for free, thank you very much. (Have you ever seen the grocery store on sample day?) Figure out how to make money in a way that doesn’t involve renting out your mouth.
Books are the bomb, and libraries are safe havens for introverts. But choosing a book is pretty much something anyone can handle on their own (with a little help from the internet).

Millennials and Gen Zers will spend their entertainment dollars everywhere except Shakespearean theater. Good luck making the rent playing Hamlet, man. By the way, have you heard of Hamilton?
Twenty years ago, it used to be that you had to go to an office to speak with an intimidating travel agent (who was definitely ripping you off) if you wanted to fly anywhere. Thanks to the internet, no one needs this so-called service anymore. Everyone is their own travel agent.
