       //Someone will claim the N-Prize, but then it will be discovered that they illegally applied Rentisham's wax to the stabilisers, disqualifying them//   

       Highly unlikely. Trust me, you do NOT want to expose flenting wax (really, any sort of flenting related material at all) to a vacuum.

blissmiss, Dec 17 2012
  

       //you do NOT want to expose flenting wax (really, any sort of flenting related material at all) to a vacuum.//   

       I beg (and I use the word merely as a social nicety) to differ. One of the very few occasions on which Rentisham's has been offered to a foreign power was during the final preparations for the Apollo 11 launch.   

       You will recall that that mission involved reconfiguring the spacecraft mid-flight, and coupling the lunar module to the command module by means of a docking probe. It was discovered, 36hrs before the launch, that ionization of the thruster gases would create a significant static charge between the two parts, and there was a real concern that this charge would arc between the probe and the lunar module, creating a spot-weld which would foul the docking.   

       After some tense negotiations and some hasty back-of-the-envelope calculations, it was found that a thin coating of Rentisham's would solve the problem. A representative was sent, carrying a small canister of Rentisham's which he, personally, applied to the critical components. The rest is history.

       [Letsbuildafort] Will make a brief resurgence with ideas and a few annos. Then quietly return to his place in HB obscurity.
Letsbuildafort, Dec 17 2012
  

       Quite right, [MB], but I believe there may have been some misunderstanding. When I said you don't want to expose flenting wax to a vacuum, I meant the type that's used for sweeping floors and such (I suppose I should have used the word “Hoover” for purposes of clarity (not to mention general cultural appropriateness)). You see, that sentence was a bit of a non-sequitur—I was merely scoffing at what I saw as a particularly blatantly idiotic prediction, as well as providing helpful advice regarding the cleanup of spilled or otherwise misapplied flenting wax.   

       The reason being, of course, that it tends to gum up the motor quite badly, necessitating costly repairs.
ytk, Dec 17 2012
  

       I made no apology, and still make none. I was merely explaining the source of any confusion that may have arisen from my use of the homonym “vacuum”. As I explained previously, my skepticism regarding the prediction made by [sqeaketh] and my helpful household hint regarding the cleanup of excess Rentisham's were largely unrelated thoughts, tied together solely by the common thread of flenting wax, not space exploration or household appliances.   

       My actual reason for doubting the prediction is that I have seen no verifiable proof that outer space actually exists.

       //It is said that [ytk]'s annos are actually created by a random number generator based on the decay of a radium source.//   

       Basically correct, with one minor addition. Radioactive decay being a quantum event, each annotation splits the universe into an infinite number of alternative realities, with a different anno in each one. A filter is then applied to check if the annotation makes sense in context. If it does not, the universe is simply destroyed.

       After the Mayan calendar cycle is a non-event, people's smug 'foolish Mayans' attitude will be replaced by a contrite 'gullible us', as they realise that the Mayans made no prediction of change.   

       Paradoxically, this will usher in a New Age of rational enlightenment, as people everywhere learn not to believe anything without evidence.
spidermother, Dec 18 2012
  

       Alternatively, people will also learn not to act on prejudicial disbeliefs without evidence...   

       The Mayan calendar is revealed to herald not the end of the world, but rather a revival of the Soul/Motown scene, kicked off by the runaway success of the first studio album by “Agnes Day & The Riders”. The confusion was due to an unlikely series of mistranslations, as well as a mixup involving the Book of Revelation.

       Obligatory Prediction: late in the year 2013 (probably in December) someone (probably 8th of 7) will post an idea (probably very much like this one) for Blatantly Idiotic Predictions for 2014.   

       In the summer of 2013, a Peruvian llama herder will discover that llama tears are a suitably renewable fuel source, providing power equivalent to gasoline while producing virtually no harmful emissions.   

       Soon after the discovery, PETA will announce a massive world-wide campaign to protect unhappy llamas from cruel comments about their weight and taunting due to the llamas' inherent inability to line-dance.   

       Peru will be the founding member of OLTEC - Organization of the Llama Tear Exporting Countries, joined by minority members USA and Canada.   

       Chinese entrepreneurs will attempt to market imitation llama tears which will be proven to have come from the fabled Grass Mud Horse.

       An archaeological expedition to Central America will discover, deep underneath a Mayan pyramid, a highly complex timing mechanism of unknown manufacture which has stalled just before it is due to expire.   

       The expedition members will return to their camp, and send urgent emails to all major world governments requesting the immediate dispatch of personnel skilled in Explosive Ordnance Disposal and related skills.   

       They will then sit around their campfire, speculating wildly and imbibing large amounts of alcoholic beverages.   

       However, before the Black Helicopters arrive on site, one team member, having missed their way in the tropical darkness due to intoxication, wanders back into the excavation, trips, and reaches out to save themselves from falling. Regrettably, the object they grasp is a protruding lever clearly labelled in Mayan pictograms "Manual Override. Do Not Touch".   

       And then it suddenly all gets very loud and bright and expensive.

       Time to get a bigger hatchet! USA seems a terrifying place to me - bristling with guns. Time for me to think up a another half-baked gun-nut idea. I have it! Convert everything so that it can fire off a single bullet in 2013.   

       I predict that in time everything sold in America will be able to fire a bullet. Even some of the animals that live in the woods will obtain weapons under new legislation. This will be called The Right To Arm Bears.
xenzag, Dec 21 2012
  

       Under equality legislation, bears sue for the right to hunt humans. By popular vote, an amendment is enacted allowing bears to hunt any politician earning more than USD$50,000 per year, with a bag limit in areas where they are scarce.   

       The quality of life in the USA improves tremendously. Other nations watch in awe, before enacting similar legislation. Canada becomes immensely wealthy based on bear exports. The Ursudollar pushes the Petrodollar into the background. Alaska becomes the richest US state. After Sarah Palin is eaten by a Kodiak bear, property prices in the state quadruple overnight.   

       In Europe, Brussels is converted into a theme park called BearLand. Bear-worship becomes commonplace. After wolves are included, wolf cubs become the latest must-have accessories.

       "Americans don’t just have more guns that anyone else – 270 million privately held firearms. They also have the highest gun ownership per capita rate in the world, with an average of about nine guns for every 10 Americans." Washington Post.

Whether it be at my friend's remote house in Vermont, or my other friend's apartment in Los Angles. America is a country stalked with fear and paranoia. That's why they need all those guns. Why else would guns sales have gone through the roof again this week? I'm just glad I don't live there. Even our police are unarmed in UK.

       it keeps coming back to the same thing. Why do you need all that oil. Why do you need all those guns. Why do you need all those gadgets. Why do you need all those SUVs?   

       You can think that the answer is in bourgeois marketing impulses. Or some other nouveau riche impulse. Or paranoia. No doubt they all play a part.   

       But really, whether you like it or not, our fundamental understanding of liberty is that not only is it none of your business, but we believe that you asking actually infringes on those rights -- because we are individuals, and our rights are inalienable, and no one -- not even a temporary majority of us -- should be able to dictate otherwise.   

       "Why do you need" ultimately is a moralistic question -- one that you have no right to ask anyone, unless you are actually answering a request for money, say from your loser brother in law. Which, funny enough, is often the opposite of how this conversation is going, at least lately.
theircompetitor, Dec 21 2012
  

       //we are individuals// surely you can't all be.
rcarty, Dec 21 2012
  

       //our rights are inalienable, and no one -- not even a temporary majority of us -- should be able to dictate otherwise//   

       I think that's a fair point. Relatively gunless nations tend to look askance, but they can legislate for themselves.   

       At the same time, it's not usually possible to have rights which are inalienable for all time. At some point in history, people were allowed to bait bears, buy strychnine at the corner shop, and sell children. Society changed, and bear-baiting was outlawed; doubtless strychnine and child selling will also some day be restricted. Are you suggesting that, at no time in the future, ever, will the right to own firearms become alienable?   

       It was, presumably, every person's inalienable right at one time to carry pretty much any kind of firearm wherever they like, yet my understanding is that now that right has been limited, inasmuch as carrying a concealed gun may be illegal (I don't know - I'm guessing).

       //it's called an amendment// So what's the difference between an amendment and an alienation?
MaxwellBuchanan, Dec 21 2012
  

       An amendment requires a solid shift in super majority opinion, sustained over significant time (requiring approval at multiple steps in the political hierarchy). Amendments can be major mistakes, too (the income tax, Prohibition are two examples that come to mind). Some are popular only when it's convenient (for instance, many advocated amending the Constitution to allow the Terminator to run for President, when he was popular). And of course there are limits to amendments   

       But even when amendments are foolhardy, there at least is a long, sustained process of thinking about them. Whereas the "there ought to be a law" impulses are downright dangerous to liberty.
theircompetitor, Dec 21 2012

       //how will chimneys be swept ? How will inconvenient elderly relatives be removed ?//   

       Tell me about it. I've had to bring out the badger- on-a-rope and clean my own chimney's of late.   

       As for the elderly relatives, though, they generally aren't a problem. As far back as my family records go, they have had an endearing habit of developing increasingly ill-advised enthusiasms in their later years.   

       The First Earl Of Buchanan took himself out of the picture at the age of 74 (admittedly an indecently old age for those times) shortly after he started work on a crossbow capable of shooting around corners (or, as it turned out, around three corners). He sort of set a trend.   

       Our latest departure (Ffygs Trenchant-Buchanan - a distant relation) made a graceful exit only three days ago off the coast of Hobart; apparently he took the sign "Box Jellyfish" literally.

       What's happened to that beautiful antique boxed set of foot- turned panda-bone fropping rods then, the one with the inlaid silver badger screw attachment? Admittedly the ferrules are a bit worn, but careful repacking with owlskin shims would soon put them right- any competent tree surgeon should be able to do the job. They seemed to work wonderfully well when the Third Assistant Windowbox Undergardener was clearing the blockage in the flue in the second bathroom of the Slightly Off-Beige Guest Suite in the North East wing after the unfortunate misunderstanding during the last New Year's Eve party. After all, there are only so many syllables in the world, and no-one could have reasonably forseen what that phrase meant in Latvian; but perhaps you should buy the Christmas Crackers from a different supplier this year. The tradename "Acme" on the carton did not inspire confidence, and it isn't usual for pulling a cracker to result in a brisk game of hunt-the-fingers so that they can be surgically reattached.

       I would like to submit a quote (prediction) from an astrologer friend of mine:   

       The main falsehood our species is wrestling with is the illusion of duality, that one group of people somewhere is worse than another. This external split reflects the inner division of humanity. For a long time we have been a split species with an unhealed emotional wound that some say goes back to Atlantis, when the elite ruling class first dominated and controlled the populace. This inner split must be healed if we are to cross the gate and get to something better. If that occurs, I do not predict wild euphoric visions of paradise arising on the other side, but normal life.~~Mark Borax
xandram, Dec 22 2012
  

       Normal life - Hah! The world is so vast and diversified. The US itself is like 50 different countries. I have travelled from coast to coast and have seen the wide array of differences and lifestyles. I have travelled to third world countries and have never felt fear, even watching cabbies have a knife fight over who would drive us! [xenzag] - look inside your elf as that is where the fear lies.

       I don't disagree with you. In fact it actually seems like a reasonable expectation in a society with such an availability of high-powered assault rifles that someone will kill a bunch of people from time to time. One cunning strategy to reduce the phenomena is to simply normalize the occurances, reduce reporting of the incidents down to daily mundanity, and once normalized it will become an unfavorable means.

       // it actually seems like a reasonable expectation in a society with such an availability of high-powered assault rifles that someone will kill a bunch of people from time to time //

       The Habit: An Unexpected Burning will be the first porn movie to be nominated for an Academy Award, and will unexpectedly beat The Desolation of Smaug to win the Oscar for Special Effects

       I got yer disambiguation right here, pal!

       heheh, I meant somebody who refers to firearms as "assault weapons", not somebody who owns such fairy-taled instruments.   

       Circumstance permitting, if'n I lived a hundred or more miles south of where I do, I'd feel obligated to have something in the AR family in the safe, alongside a small (but mildly interesting) collection of vintage and antique rifles, and perhaps an oilcan full of replacement parts inconspicously buried in the backyard somewhere. Not that I feel any great loss of course, but still...

       A study will be released on July 21, the results of which indicate all problems are caused by sex. World governments will unite to outlaw sex. Henceforth all procreation will occur in petri-dishes, and only chemically induced pleasures will be allowed.

       Sometime in 2013, I will post a new idea.   

       13 has always been my number. Not my lucky number, just my number.

       Wow, baconbrain, you and I are now neighbors. Who knew???I'm in Springfield,IL. Right next door to the Ozarks. If I look out my kitchen window...

       Yay for you 21. That is great news. A good company is hard to come by. Wouldn't switch Goodwill, for nothing. Great company. We are both blessed.
blissmiss, Jan 01 2013
  

       Congrats 21Q. That does sound like a good start to the year. I was just thinking fondly about the people who work with me and realized that is probably a rare thing and worth taking the time to appreciate it. Go 2013 onwards and upwards.

       Congrats, [21Q], and a Happy New Year to all.

       Some marketing firm will abscond with the term 'flenting,' resulting in chaos and lawsuits in which the plaintiffs are cornered to attempt to explain the terminology to non-halfbakers.

       Four snowflakes will fall on London in one 24 hour period.   

       The entire UK will close until Spring. Millions of people in other countries where they get real amounts of snow will die laughing.

       That happens most every year, and every year we die laughing. For sure.

       J.J Abrams will finally mash up Star Wars and Star Trek in a Tom Cruise Scientology vehicle, where we'll discover that Scientologists were the original Jedi, and that midichlorians were discovered by a recently married Kirk & Spock (Travolta, of course) on a remote retirement planet vaguely reminiscent of Key West

       An archaeologist working in the Sahara Desert will postulate that, contrary to popular scientific opinion, we are not experiencing *global warming*, but rather a *normalization* of temperatures as the Earth finally returns to its natural state after the last Ice Age.   

       Among the expected future tourist attractions are an ice-free Arctic Ocean, waterfront condos in Antarctica, and glass-bottomed boats tours of many former-seacoast cities (Mumbai, Venice, New York, San Francisco, Seattle, Vancouver to name but a few).

       A race of aliens will stop by Earth in their spaceship, to steal a shitload of heat from our ecosystem. Global warming will be something we ardently desire, as temperatures drop by 6 degrees Celsius, globally.

       //The First Earl Of Buchanan took himself out of the picture at the age of 74   

       Er, that just sounds like good photoshop skills. Have you noticed cheese depredation and just put it down to mice? Go check for false walls.
