I predict a flower will bloom tomorrow.


Nothing fun about predicting that now is there.? But, there are alien predictions... I personally think those are good predictions.

I predict that in three and a half hours time I will be standing at the bar of a famous tennis centre, still perspiring but enjoying a bubbly as the spoils of victory.

I also predict a flowering plant will die tomorrow.

Why?

What's the fun in that?

I've wondered that myself as well, but then you have to realize that no one is really interested in reading about good predictions. It's always the bad ones that catch peoples attention, and almost always the bad ones that people seem to believe.

Here is a prediction that will come true: I will be in bed in about 10 minutes. :-D

Is this plant you see dying a Sunflower??? Please please do not let it be my sunflower!!! please oh please... Oh gosh and I thought the three asteroids hitting the earth this month were bad!

Well, what would you consider a good prediction? We will discover a cure for the common cold in August.... But, then I predict a worse one will come out..


Or, how about look at the bad predictions in good light... Ok, so they predict that an asteroid will take out the earth. Well, jsut predict that it will not happen to your side of the earth. Or 10% will live... just don`t predict 90% will die... ha ha

I was 50/50 on the tennis in match play, although the team won.

It's not tomorrow yet. I'll go out and destroy a flowering cactus to avoid the misery that could be caused by the untimely demise of a sunflower, to restore botanical karmic order to things.

Predictions are mostly the dark part of ourself and how it sees the world, deep inside we love bad things and bad omens it feeds on our happiness.


Just a joke.

MA - It is ok... no need to worry.. There is an old Daisy that is on her last pedal that has volunteered to bite the dust for the sunflower.......

Let the cactus live ... I repeat.. let the cactus live....

problem with "good" predictions is that they tend to be personal and only affect a few. Not everyone is gonna be happy when something good happens for someone else.

however I do predict that at least 100 babies will be born today who will bring lots of happiness to 100 families and countless relatives.

They are mostly wrong, because they are guesses, there is to much left to chance, chaos. Only if you know for sure, can you make a good perdiction.

Good "predictions" are simply too dangerous if you're wrong about them.
Bad "predictions" are not a big problem if you're wrong.

Tell someone he'll get a hamburger for dinner, he'll be happy when he get something better, a phat steak.
Tell someone he'll get a phat steak for dinner, he'll hate you when he get something worse, a hamburger.

Giving peoples false hope is worse than scare them for nothing. I know that's a silly example but I hope you get the point, you just don't mess with good predictions, the fear of being wrong is worse.
