Here are some predictions for what's going to happen in 2006. (http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20051231/ts_afp/afplifestylefuture2006trendsoffbeat)

As usual there is an asteroid/comet in there. From supercomputers to crystals balls, prognostication keeps going and going and going...

I need to check the coffee grounds at the bottom of my cup to see what the pattern predicts. Ah, it is becoming clear...the mystic pattern says, "It's time to change your filter!"

Anyone else have predictions about the new year?

Another mystic seer, Anita Nigam from India, has extended her powers of the paranormal into another realm -- sports betting.

For a mere 50 pounds (88 dollars, 73 euros) a week, you can get her insights into the outcomes of English football's Premier League matches. World Cup rates are yet to be announced, but rumor has it she's keen on Brazil.


What! You've got to be kidding me! So you pay her money whilst she loses yours! If she was so good at predicting that sort of thing why would she have to sell her services?!? Never understood that particular paradox............

Here are my psychic predictions for 06:

The Bird flu will spread to birds in Europe and Africa and shortly thereafter to the Americas. It will be more from smuggling exotic birds than wild bird migration.

Human cases will rise sporadically for many months. Then there will be a few isolated outbreaks of human to human transmission.

A major pandemic will not occur until 2007 but it will happen sometime that year.

There will be at least 3 mag 7 earthquakes that will affect populated areas including one more large tsunami generating quake in the area south or north of the 12-26-04 big one. While people will remember to run uphill when the tide goes out in a strange way, thousands will still be killed including some tourists who walk out to see the funny low tide or who walk out there thinking they have time to outrun the incoming wave. Only a few people will remember there is more than one wave coming and that will result in many deaths.

The Iraq war will be unchanged in 2006. Bush will move a few troops around in an effort to appear to be withdrawing, but it will just be for show. The insurgency in Afghanistan will increase. Spying on US citizens will continue and it will be revealed that the target the FISA court was not informed of was reporters who received the leaks about the CIA torturing prisoners in other countries. Protest by the American public will be minimal.

It will be another record year for hurricanes and cyclones. New Orleans will not take a direct hit but will not have recovered by the end of 06 either. The levies will not be adequately rebuilt and will again fail though my psychic information is fuzzy as to when.

More houses will burn in wildfires in both the USA and in Australia.

The magnetic poles will move even more erratically but it will not affect any travelers since GPS and the European satellite will be the means of navigation for everyone anyway. We won't have weird auroras and big solar flares in 06 but we might see weird effects of the shifting magnetic poles and solar flares by 2010.

Bangladesh will flood.

My vision is fading now......I will need rest before I can make more predictions. My book will be released soon. You can order an advanced copy at your local bookstore. ;)

Looks like the comet/asteroid prediction came true! But it happened a few days early, so I guess it wont really count as a 2006 prediction :razz:

Prediction 1 - The Canadian federal election campaign becomes nasty. A Conservative minority is elected. Before the Liberals can replace Martin as leader, he gets a confidence motion through defeating the Conservative minority, resulting in Canadians going to the polls for the third time in two years. Totally fed up with the Liberals, a Conservative majority is elected. The NDP form the official opposition, the Bloc sweep Quebec seats and the Liberals are left with 2 seats (hey if it can happen to the Tories, why not the Grits ;) )

Prediction 2 - Prediction 1 doesn't happen.

Prediction 3 - 2006 will be a better year than 2005. :)

Alas, no, they were all used to line bird-cages (probably the best use for such "journalism").

beskeptical's predictions are probably the best ones here. Let me add this one: some celebrity on trial will walk this year. That's always a safe one! :dance:

Oh, one more! Nancy Lieder will still continue to insist that Planet X is marauding about the inner Solar System inflicting untold (and undetectable!) damage. :doh:

I have had a feeling about a certain date and time in 2006 :shifty: Beyond that I can not say, as there is no evidence apart from something that popped in my head after contemplating a what if scenario

Maybe this is more like one of those irrational suspicions that people get based on the most flimsy of evidence, if any, seeing conspiracies where there are none, due to say some mental health problem :think: I do wonder if this is how some so-called psychics work or how those in the past who read entrails and tea leaves work, :think: , or perhaps heaven forfend they are playing on the gullible :shifty:

I have not added to that mire by keeping stum. If I am wrong, as the rules of probability seem to say, I will not be held to ridicule and be seen as a woo woo. If by some outrageous quirk of space time / improbability / Bistro mathematic??? I am right, then as I had no evidence no one would have believed me anyhue.

I much prefer to read the past and present and extrapolate, because at least we can show our working.

So based on the more scientific approach I predict

2006 will be succeded by 2007 :whistle:

I predict we'll get an X15+ flare.
I predict that global warming will continue, but that as the ocean temperature is kept stable by polar ice meltoff it will be generally ignored.

Wow! It must be significant. How could two of us, on two separate continents, come up with the same prediction! :surprised It must be absolute proof that it will come true! It is the dawning of a new age!:dance:

I found the end. It didn't take months, but it certainly took a while. And I can confirm that the end is, in fact, the beginning.
