Fearless 2019 predictions:

1.  A rabbit fossil is found in pre-Cambrian strata, showing "Darwinism" wrong once and for all, and the conservative blogosphere goes crazy with self-congratulatory "I told you so" posts.  YEC glee is short-lived, however, when the "fossil" turns out be radically different from any fossil ever seen before in terms of chemical composition, bone structure, etc.  Scientists conclude space aliens are just messing with them and a slew of peer-reviewed reports appear in the scientific literature as to how best to control for this confounding variable.
2.  A randomized controlled double-blinded study is published in the NEJM showing (at p < 0.001) that the MMR vaccine is associated with a three-fold higher risk of autism in infants.  Andrew Wakefield is nominated for a Nobel Prize.  Unfortunately, the authors are forced to retract the study after it turns out the graduate student entering the data into Excel was completely inebriated at the time, and re-analysis with correct data yields only p < 0.053 which, as everyone knows, is "not significant".
3.  Pope Francis issues the call for Vatican Council III.  In the first session, the Council Fathers publish a document saying the Church needs to "evolve" and read the "signs of the times" by abolishing the NOM and re-instituting the TLM in every parish in the West, and that the well-known principles of "Development of doctrine" and "hermeneutic of continuity" clearly require a re-analysis of Vatican II.  Outraged dissenting Council Fathers hold a press conference where they portray their motto "Modernism cannot change".
4.  As a result, the SSPX becomes officially sedevacantist.  Bishop Fellay writes in the Angelus that while the SSPX has always recognized Modernist Popes as true Vicars of Christ, a would-be "Pope" whose very Modernism fuels his return to Tradition is obviously no Pope at all.
5.  Heinrich and I agree on something.  Except then we start arguing about what exactly we did agree on or if we did.  I agree to buy him an ale but he insists I promised a porter.

Remember folks, you heard it here first.

Because I truly believe that Mike Pence is the only one that can keep a Democrat out of the White House the next election.

why?

Heinrich will accept whatever swill you offer because he knows when he passes it to me, I'll have the barkeep provide him with a libation of his choice since I am a miscreant who will drink, by choice, PBR in lieu of fancy-pants craft stuff.

ETA: the next morning you won't be sure if your hangover is due to high fusel alcohols amounts in your fancy drink or because I badgered you w/ Kent Hovind quotes all night.
Lent: Only on Sundays.

I believe Trump won because he harped on a lot of the same things that you would hear in a local blue collar tavern. Rural America liked what they heard coming from Trump as well.

I voted for him. Why ? Because I'm sick of Democrats pandering to special interest groups. I'm sick of your run-of-the-mill politician.

But I didn't know that once he got in office he would be so freaking repulsive toward our allies. I didn't know that he would carry himself the way he does once he made it to the White House. He's full of himself.

Yes, I like a lot of the things he's done. But why does he persist in making a fool of himself ? He's not a world leader.

The guy is on a power trip from hell.

As far as the predictions of Civil War and all, I don't believe that's going to happen. Sitting here on the internet, it may seem possible but when I leave for work in the morning and I'm out in the world, I don't see all of this extreme division and suspicion of one another. And believe me, I interact with a lot of people during my work day.

All I can truly say is wrong with this country is hypocrite Democrats and drug addicts.






Mike Pence will become the 46th President of the United States.

I hope you're right about that.

Why?

Because I truly believe that Mike Pence is the only one that can keep a Democrat out of the White House the next election.

Did you also truly believe that every other Republican candidate would beat Hellary? It is really a non issue since we will not have an election in 2020. That civil war I predict will preclude that. The porn plug and finance notes for the Harleys, F150 Raptors, and McMansions are all pulled; wall and racial violence; breaking point attacks on innocent people(white conservatives), etc.



Updated prediction: There will be a false flag event eclipsing the tragic and stupefying 9/11 job.

Have you tried Steel Reserve? PBR is refreshing but Steel Reserve has a pretty decent kick for something that is not an imperial stout.

Here are my predictions:

1. Such "predictions" of historical events will continue to be as much exctretory products of a bovine digestive system as assignments of "prior probabilites" without knowledge of the deterministic mechanics of a process and the correct ones nothing more than the result of the broken clock effect.

2. People will die, taxes will be paid, Disney's next Star Wars will suck, and social trends with momentum will continue.

Can't drink Steel Reserve. I drink plenty of cheap beer, but Steel Reserve is the one I just can't choke down.

Here's my preferred cheap beer: Get a 24 oz can of something like Icehouse at the gas station for 99 cents. Then buy a single of high-alcohol / high-IBU craft beer that's probably too strong to choke down on its own. Add a couple ounces of the craft beer to 12 ounces of the cheap beer, and bingo you have a really excellent beer for less than a dollar per bottle.

At a ratio of 2-to-10 or 3-to-9 you have a pretty good-tasting beer for hardly any money. At a ratio of 6-to-6 you have a beer that probably tastes better than the original craft single since you get all the flavor without being so strong that it chokes you with the flavor of grapefruit juice.

I like Steel Reserve, but since I can only buy it in 24 oz. Cans, I just can't drink it fast enough where its still cold.

"My brothers, all of you, if you are condemned to see the triumph of evil, never applaud it. Never say to evil: you are good; to decadence: you are progess; to death: you are life. Sanctify yourselves in the times wherein God has placed you; bewail the evils and the disorders which God tolerates; oppose them with the energy of your works and your efforts, your life uncontaminated by error, free from being led astray, in such a way that having lived here below, united with the Spirit of the Lord, you will be admitted to be made but one with Him forever and ever: But he who is joined to the Lord is one in spirit."

You can get it in the 24 oz cans here, but most markets sell it in standard 12 Oz 12 packs as well.

Hey a year ago some people thought I was crazy for saying there would be no war with Korea. You forget the audience here, and how tense the situation was. Even my co-workers and command team thought we were going to war. The whole dang military was on edge. I was the odd one out on that.

But I get your point. I'll try to make at least one outlandish prediction this year. The problem is the outlandish usually doesn't happen.
