Here's the problem with these "predictions" some people fail to grasp. If something happened in London today the OP thinks, THINKS he would be on
here while we all sang songs about his remarkable insight while offering him the use of our wives. What would actually be happening (probably about
now) is getting his door kicked in and 30 or so armed police streaming into his house. His evening would be a fun filled foray into the world of
cavity searches and late night interrogations. He is now prime suspect number 1.
But why? Well it's very simple. I go ahead and proclaim a "prediction" that at some point on the 18th of August my neighbour's car is going to be
keyed. His license plate has "108" on it and 10+8=18. On the 19th of August he wakes to find my "prediction" has come true. Who keyed the car? Who
is most likely to have keyed the car? Where will the suspicion fall?
Point? Well there has to be one or else I'm just rambling. First, if you make enough predictions eventually one is bound to come true. Of course if
you make frivolous predictions, for example, I predict it will rain in the UK in the next 3 days, the odds are higher but it raining will not get my
door kicked in and someone checking me at the wrong end for what I had for breakfast that day. Second, there is a very fine line between suspecting
something will happen and scaremongering, think TWICE about whether your "prediction" crosses that line!
