When I was younger I used to watch a lot of movies and animation from the '30s - '60s, and one constant throughout, whether it was Looney Tunes or something I caught on TCM, they'd always reference "The World's Fair" like it was the biggest fucking event in history, yet I'd never heard of it before.

For years I assumed they stopped sometime around the '70s, and only discovered a couple years ago what actually happened:

>International Exhibition as it was usually called starts in the mid 1800s

>It is literally a show where every country comes together and unveils their masterpiece of architecture/technology/whatever

>Event is officially called "World's Fair" literally 5 times, 3 of them in the 1980s

>Yet is informally referred to as such for the better part of 50 years

>Clearly the most memorable name

>Cucknada gets it for 1967 and decides to call it "Expo", which sounds faggy and nu-maleish as shit

>Focus gradually shifts from man's achievement to whatever the globohomo agenda advocates that year

>In either the '80s or '90s (part of me wants to say 1984), that year's "Expo" is a massive bust

>Event gets scaled down into nothingness, and persists to this day

>Nobody gives a shit about what was once The World's Fair anymore

Could we conceivably have a modern day World's Fair with huge structures and mindblowing innovations, somewhat like the Olympics but for human achievement? Or is it just not possible? I'd imagine the budget would be enormous and our ability to connect with one another effortlessly has basically nullified the entire purpose of the event.


The true question is, would even be proud of the structures we have built anymore if it continued?
