I'm no psychic, but I'm going to offer some prognostications for the coming year--let's see how many I get right:
Despite their claim to being the most intelligent creatures on the planet, human beings will continue to do incredibly stupid things.
There will be a technological breakthrough that will change our lives forever.
Someone we'd thought was gone for good will be back up to his old tricks.
The only thing more appalling than the performance of the present administration, is that the other side doesn't have anything better to offer.
Most predictions about the weather will continue to be way off base.
There will be a massive scandal in the field of either business, government, or both.
A celebrity will self-destruct.
The entertainment industry will plumb new depths.
Yet another fringe group will agitate for its rights to be recognized.
A new record will be set in the art world when "Dogs Playing Poker" is sold at Sotheby's.
There will be a devastating storm somewhere in the world, with a large loss of life and property.
This will be blamed on global warming.
The sun will rise in the east and set in the west.
This will also be blamed on global warming.
Millions of people will be inspired to make promises they can't keep when the clock strikes midnight on Dec. 31.
Millions more will wake up unable to remember making those promises sometime on Jan. 1.
Happy 2014, From The Four Republibots.
