There’s More to This Story

August 25, 2013

This is the story of the man unfairly accused on cheaterville.com. He and his wife have filed a lawsuit.

My prediction is that there is more to this story than meets the eye. I am not suggesting there is any truth to the accusations. I am suggesting something “interesting” is going on: perhaps a secret crush on the accused man, some other form of mishegas, etc.

We’ll see. The accused man’s name is “Jared Powers”. At the very least, this is an unfortunate situation.

Water, Water, Water

May 25, 2013

Dire prediction about water shortage in the future. I hope I am still alive to check this one. Note there is also a prediction about the world’s population. Excerpt below. Full article here.

The majority of people on Earth will face severe water shortages within a generation or two if pollution and waste continues unabated, scientists warned at a conference in Bonn Friday.

“This handicap will be self-inflicted and is, we believe, entirely avoidable,” read a document entitled The Bonn Declaration issued at the close of the four-day international huddle.

The conference sought to assess the evidence of man’s impact on freshwater resources, which constitute only 2.5 percent of the total volume of water on Earth.

Currently, an estimated third of the world’s seven million people has limited access to adequate fresh water, according to conference delegates.

“In the short span of one or two generations, the majority of the nine billion people on Earth will be living under the handicap of severe pressure on fresh water,” said the declaration.

The nine billion mark is widely projected to be reached from about 2040.

Robots Take Over

May 8, 2013

Here is a prediction that intelligent robots will overtake humans by 2100. I won’t be alive, but maybe this blog will be around then so we can all share a chuckle (yes, I doubt this will happen).

 

Had a bad day

December 19, 2012

As I listened to this song (yet again) on the Dr’s office music system, I realized that this song will never go away. It is a one hit wonder that just may represent the song of the 2000’s, it not the new century. My specfic predictions are:

  1. A museum will be erected in honor of this song.
  2. This song and associated merchandise will someday account for 50% of the GDP of Canada.
  3. No-one will ever remember who actually wrote and performed this song (Daniel Powter, remember him?).
