Yeah, AOL has done some pretty dumb things in its time, but buying HuffPo might be the dumbest. The former might survive, but I cannot see them subsidising HuffPo indefinitely, it makes no commercial sense.

5Cats is spot on. There are far more of these. There is even an aircraft carrier named after Foch, whose predictions would mean that such a thing would not exist.

It's a lot easier to predict things wrongly than rightly...

I was out in the boonies for the eighties and when I got back to UK I thought buying bottles of water was a wierd aberration that wouldn't last.

I thought mp3 players were lame and wouldn't catch on because you HAVE to have a computer to load songs.

The last one is actually correct. HuffPo has yet to turn a profit. It's apparently being propped up by donations -- probably from some rich liberal like George SoreAss.
