As has been our tradition these many years, it’s time to register our predictions for the coming year. We look at how well we did last year tomorrow.
- Everybody should have a go at the election.
- Number your predictions, using numbers, like this.
- Limit your predictions to 5, a number less than 6 or more.
- No sports.
- Be specific and provide a way to verify your projections.
- Attach a probability word if you are less than certain.
- Verified predictions of our coming Doom will receive very little weight unless they are quite specific.
- The Most Controversial Book Of The Decade will cause at least seventeen splenetic fevers, and century of conniption fits, a goodly number of strokes, one serious infarction, and, with the blessing, at least one reasonably sized riot. It may also talk at least one person out of believing asinine things. Buy as many copies as you can—when it is announced.
- Seven or more readers will gaze upon the above prediction and tell one colleague about the book, and these colleagues will be psyched. The title has not yet been released, because I may change my mind. Though this one is growing on me: The Most Controversial Book Of The Decade.
- Trump, if he survives, wins 2020 in a canter. Very high chance. I still give assassination low probability, but I do not discount it entirely. Trump, as little as he has done, has drive the left mad. Reason and rationality have long exited the scene. As the election draws near, and the insane among progressives sense the inevitable, I still suspect at least one attempt.
- Alien life, of the rational kind, is announced. I do not say discovered, but announced. We have been led this way the past few years, when even “official” sources are giving UFO stories credence. Low chance for this, but if it happens, I won’t be buying it. Our elites in charge of disseminating “information” for us to “consume” have proven themselves utterly untrustworthy.
- Last year I predicted we’d see an announcement a named company adopted a university-style Diversity oath to be employed. It’s rare now for universities not to have them, and as university graduates infiltrate businesses, and particularly HR, they will take with them the indoctrination they received. I did not see such an announcement, but I cannot believe that no company hasn’t done this—for hiring, not after being hired. Prediction: this year we see the announcement.
