"Singapore's Mani, the Parakeet or the Parrot is now world famous for correctly predicting the 4 semi-finalists in the FIFA World Cup 2010.

Last week, Mani, with the help of its caretaker (who is a fortune-teller) using cards, correctly predicted that Uruguay, Netherlands, Spain and Germany will advance to the World Cup 2010 semifinals."

Now he predicts Spain and Uruguay to meet in the finals, will he be right? My personal feelings tell me Holland and Germany though. I can see Spain beating Germany but not Uruguay beating Holland.

Let's wait to see what Paul the Octopus has to say.

Thoughts?

it would help to know how many people used their parrots to try and predict this. depending on the answer it would be likely for at least 1 parrot to be correct


As for the finals? I cant see how germany wouldn't be in there... they have played some awesome ball this World Cup. I am Dutch but I dont have my hopes up for the Netherlands to be there. Germany VS Spain perhaps?

Hmmm, so he predicted 4 correct results out of 4 for the quarter finals.

Each one with 1/2 chance of being correct, and 1/16 chance of getting all 4 right.

Therefore well within the realms of chance, as there's more than 16 parrots and at least 1 are bound to guess correct!

I don't know why, but I love these threads - purely for the fun of it, and partly because so many people have come to desperately believe in another little creature that goes by the name of Paul:


PAUL the octopus oracle in Germany has done it again – correctly predicting that Germany would beat Argentina in their quarter-final clash at the weekend.

That makes his prediction record in the World Cup perfect.

Diego Maradona’s side may have the world’s best footballer in Lionel Messi, but his team just couldn’t overcome the psychic powers of Paul, an octopus at the Sea Life public aquarium in the German city of Oberhausen who has become internationally renowned for his surprising accuracy in predicting the results of World Cup matches.

Waddya know, its in the news and Paul the Octopus predicts spain to win germany like the parrot!

The coincidence is kind of creepy. If those two predictions are correct and Spain ultimately win, you have to agree that this parrot is psychic.

Ok i am at the Soccer City stadium all the time for this WC BUT what i would like to see is which countries will be in the Semi's NEXT world cup in Brazil!!

LMAO - if there were 1,000,000 Parrots it goes to reason that at least 1 will get it right and THAT will be the one sensationalized.

Hi guys, before you say this parrot was "sensationalized". I'm sorry, but I live in Singapore and he was already in the news making the predictions for the 4 semi finalists BEFORE those matches happened.

The news of his predictions came before the matches were broad-casted. So it wasn't sensationalized.

At 5-1 odds for Uruguay to win today, I've put a few quid on it.

Hope the parrot really is psychic.

I think that when the germans stuff spain the parrot should be served up as starters after which the octopus can be fried up for main course.

I expect holland to beat uruguay but it could go to extra time and penalties leaving the winners even more tired for the final.

Its fairly obvious that Germany will lift the World Cup this year.
