@ boredfjord: I couldn't agree more, if that`s the way people are `predicting` the future, I can do the same.
"in 50 years in the future, something horrible will have happened."
Take that for example. Something a fortune teller might have said. He/she`s basically telling you that `something` that isn`t good will happen in the coming 50 years...Geez, what`re the odds of that? about a 100 percent, I`d say... I told you it was easy ;)

If Jimi Hendrix sang on, say, a chorus of Red House, "Ooh, baby, on September 18th, 1970, I am going to die in the flat of Monika Dannemann in the Samarkand hotel in London, ooh, Lord, baby, I know because God told me so," THEN I might be impressed. The key to successful predictions is for them to be uselessly vague.
