Ahh, the new year: the inspiration provided by the boundless opportunities before us, and the crushing reality of the obligations that lie ahead. A dichotomy of hope and dread, and only one more year until the world ends.

My prognostications for 2011 include:

  • Something happens involving North Korea. Last time, I was right - nothing happened.
  • The Phillies starters don't live up to expectations.
  • The housing market dips again.
  • Hollywood puts out one flop after another until they decide to quit making movies about vampires and teenage sex romps. (Wishful thinking.)
  • The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim makes people forget about those unnecessary motion gaming add-ons.
  • A professional athlete commits a violent crime.
  • Everything works out as it should, eventually.

And, for my boldest prediction, I imagine that 2011 will see the occurrence of an event that no one could have foreseen. When that happens, remember that I foresaw it.

    No trackbacks yet.
