Re: A2K Predictions for 2005
How'd we all do? Here were my choices (in blue, below) and how I did is in red.

1) In 2005, the US will next go to war with
(a) Iran
(b) North Korea
(c) Nobody, we'll just wrap up our current engagements - half-right, we didn't declare any more wars but it's not wrapped up yet.
(d) The Sudan

2) We'll see the obituary for
(a) Ernest Borgnine
(b) Dick Cheney
(c) Courteney Love Oops, I was wrong. And none of these folks shuffled off the mortal coil in '05.
(d) Larry Hagman

3) Hilary Clinton will
(a) write a book I was wrong here, too, and she didn't do any of these things in '05
(b) head a powerful Senate committee (please specify)
(c) announce she is not running for President in '08
(d) host SNL

4) This couple will head to divorce court
(a) Jessica Simpson and Nich Lachey
(b) Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston
(c) J. Lo and Marc AnthonyDang, I coulda gotten one completely right if I'd picked (a) or (b)
(d) Madonna and Guy Ritchie

5) The FDA will announce
(a) low carb diets are bad for you Eek, wrong again, but these diets have fallen out of fashion in a big way.
(b) Vitamin B12 should not be taken in megadoses
(c) Viagra will be available over the counter
(d) Tylenol will no longer be available without a prescription

6) The following person will open up an exploratory committee for possibly running for President in '08
(a) John Edwards
(b) Hilary Clinton
(c) Condoleeza Rice
(d) Mitt RomneyNot quite, but he's not running for reelection (he's the Governor of Mass.), so speculation runs rampant. I'll give myself a half-point for this one.

7) The winners of the World Series will be
(a) The Chicago Cubs
(b) The New York Yankees
(c) The Boston Red SoxOops, they left the playoffs quickly, eh?
(d) The Houston Astros

8) The next major astronomical discovery will be
(a) Interesting patterns on a Uranian satellite which will indicate the possible existence of subterranean water
(b) Enough gravitational shifts in a nearby star so as to indicate the possibility of a multi-planet systemI had said maybe also (c). So much for my prognosticating powers.
(c) A new comet which will appear in the next 3 years
(d) A regular radio signal from a distant star, possibly indicative of communications technology

9) The hottest electronic device/toy will be
(a) A doll with a cellphoneI had also said I'd like to see (b) or (d). (b) exists, (a) might but it's certainly not a hot toy; the hot toy is probably the new XBox.
(b) A phone with a video camera that can take short movies
(c) A smaller music disc than the currently accepted CD standard
(d) A hand-held DVD recorder for home movies

10) The hottest fashion item will be
(a) Thigh-high leather boots with spike heels
(b) Cheap cashmere blend sweaters in various colorsI had also said that (d) was a possibility. Anyway, these exist but they're not exactly a hot fashion item. Right now, not much of anything is super-hot, it seems.
(c) Wearing jangling metallic bracelets up and down both arms
(d) Tee shirts with political slogans


Well, I didn't do too well, eh? Just a couple of half-rights. Next post: predictions for 2006.
