2006 Predictions Contest

What does 2006 have in store for us?

UPDATE: I can't believe
that NONE of you

are willing to stick your necks out

and make any predictions!!!

'bout time for a new contest, I'd say, so here we go! Let's have your predictions of things that will happen in 2006.

What kind of predictions am I looking for? Well, take a look at any of the tabloid newspapers at the supermarket, that will kinda set the tone. I'm looking for predictions of things that would be a surprise if they actually happened, but COULD occur.

Predictions of things that can already be expected to occur don't count. For example, predicting that "it's going to be hot in Death Valley next Summer" doesn't cut it, but predicting "a foot of snow in Phoenix on the 4th. of July", and then having it happen, would be a hard one to beat!

Predicting that "Saddam gets convicted" doesn't make the grade, but predicting that "Saddam gets acquitted, then opens a day-care in San Francisco", anyhow, I think you get the idea.

Alien landings, world records, scientific developments, politics, supernatural stuff, it's wide open.

Let your imagination, sense of humor, and creativity be your guide. Remember that the predictions, if they come true, must in some way be verifiable.

You can either email your predictions to

or leave them in the comments below for this post.

I'll do a follow up post listing the best ones in a week or so, and at the end of the year we'll bring them back out and see how well you did at predicting the future!

Get out your crystal balls!!

Here's one for you.

Hillary catches Bill in yet another extra-marital tryst. In the ensuing argument, he physically attacks her. She pulls the concealed handgun that she has secretly been carrying since moving to New York and kills him. It is found to be justifiable self-defense.

Revealed as a gun-packer to her Democrat supporters--as well as the killer of their "best president ever," her chances for pres in '08 are destroyed. Republicans still don't trust her, although she becomes an unwilling icon for women's self-defense rights.

She retires into the lecture circuit and eventually becomes a talk-show host on WE tv, as well as the author of a best-selling cookbook. By 2010 she eclipses Oprah as the most popular female talk-show host in the country.

The remains of a B-17 Bomber, missing since July 1944, will be located at the bottom of a steep sided canyon, by high resolution radar, mounted on a moon orbiter.
Scientists are calculating how the crew managed to break the sound barrier, to say mothing of the approximately 25.000 MPH escape velocity.

The King County Police, involved in a huge PR fiasco for letting a dirtbag gunner just hosepipe rounds off at them and the neighborhood for almost 10 hours, will give up their shiny helicopter, having had the expense and worthlessness of it revealed to the entire farking world.

Instead, the King County Police will request and get a rotation of county politicians assigned to their Aero Squad, with no less than three available at any time to provide the necessary hot air to lift the oh-so-green County Balloon, first-in-the-nation to not use petroleum fuel for hot air generation.

Shortly after making the new Aero Squad operational, the Balloon will loft the politico-SWAT team for a barricaded shooter on the waterfront, but the Pilot, having only a Politically Correct License and not a Balloon Pilot's Certificate, will not have checked the wind, and the Balloon will drift out over the Sound, where the politicians will panic and use up all their Hot Air screaming, and the Balloon will ditch, and all aboard will be eaten by the resident Pod of Orcas that these same politicos spent so much of their time saving.

Two more excellent predictions, by golly! And I was starting to think you all had no imagination!
