2007 Predictions! Post Yours Here!
1) For the 25% of Americans who think this is the year Jesus Christ makes his second coming, sorry to disappoint you. This is not your year.

2) Lindsey Lohan, Paris Hilton, and Britney Spears will not go away quietly. We will have to put up with news of them for another 12 months. One of them will be arrested. One will get married. One will injure someone in a careless traffic accident. All three will accidentally flash a female body part to the paparazzi.

3) The most popular Lounge topic will be on something unexpected like kudzu or the Olive Garden.

1. Greenland will melt and flood the ocean by 20 feet.
I'm not good at cheerful predictions.

2. Someone will die, and huge segments of the population will make the claim
Edited on Mon Jan-01-07 12:13 AM by qnr
that it always happens in threes, without defining what "threes" means. In a week? In two hours? in a month? What if 5 people die in two days, do we start counting again at the 4th one?

4. We'll see more scandal and disgrace uncovered when the Dems take change
We'll probably see at least one government official convicted of some sort of misconduct.

Karl Rove WILL resign. The man has become a political liability.

Rush Limbaugh will get caught getting jiggly with a prostitute. There will be photographic evidence. It will NOT be pretty.

Martin Sheen will announce his candidacy for the Presidency in 2008. The Governator will implode with envy. Many people will laugh, but a surprising number of people will seriously consider voting for "Jed Bartlett" when they see how icky the rest of the field is looking.

Someone will finally invent a flying car, but the automobile and oil industries will smother the research to death because it'll run on hydrogen and/or electricity.

At least one major corporation will file for a corporate welfare bailout when it gets caught cooking the books and/or evading millions in taxes. Meanwhile, the IRS will continue harassing the minimum wage grocery store clerk who got the Earned Income Tax Credit for her two kids.

On a brighter note, ThinkBlue2006 will ace all of her college courses and wind up on the Dean's List for the Spring 2007 semester!

7. You want em? I got em.
My prediction: not enough will be done about global warming, and a horrific environmental crisis will occur, forever affecting our planet for the worse. Cheers.

9. I predict
That I will do nothing to change my life in any positive way and rot away slowly mentally and physically until I am an 80 lb shell of a human that falls asleep and never wakes up. How's that for cheery!

Happy New Year!
