Predictions for 2006

These are my psychic predictions for 2006.

  • Sports: Barry Bonds takes over as the all-time homerun leader. The White Sox will fail to make the post season. Roy Jones, Jr. is put into a coma, but recovers.

  • World Events: Osama bin Laden’s body is found, but neither the war in Iraq nor the “war on terror” are affected.

  • Local Events: A scandal will reveal that the NYPD has systematically underreported crime statistics over the last eight years.

  • National Events: Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez is forced to resign. Dick Cheney is forced to resign “for health reasons.”

  • Economy: Google’s stock price drops to $80. The Dow at the end of the year will be under 10,500.

  • Entertainment: Peter Jackson begins preproduction on The Hobbit. Studios experiment with releasing DVDs of movies at the same time they appear in the theaters in order to combat piracy.

  • Technology: TiVo goes bankrupt, but Microsoft adopts the technology.

  • Natural Disasters: A hurricane will wreck havoc above the Mason-Dixon line. A blizzard will cause Washington D.C. governmental offices to close for three days. There will be an earthquake in Missouri causing panic, but minor damage.

Wow, I knew preganat women developed heightened senses, but this is impressive :)

And a earthquake in Missouri is quite possible, they do sit on a active, though not very impressive fault line system. When my parents thought of moving there, most of the people had their furniture attached to the walls to keep them from tipping during mild trembles.

If I'm correct about any of the disasters I'll freak myself out!

The fate of the White Sox is not hard to predict. It was just a fluke that they achieved anything this year. I'm happy and so very pleased for them . . . but you know the old adage, the fact of life: "Lightening never strikes twice in the same place."

Yeah, I had some "gimmes" in my list of predictions.
