[8th of 7] will require a bit of prodding to keep him on his toes…
ytk, Dec 19 2013


       [8th of 7] will spend the entire year muttering and grumbling because [ytk] posted "Blatantly Idiotic Predictions For 2014" first.

       A superbug virus will evolve and wipe out much of the cattle production of Wyoming. It will be easy to detect, however, by its 6 foot tall frame, cape emblazoned with <SB>, and hot pants, and consequently easily controlled with a kryptonite vaccine. Another superbug will quickly emerge, however, wearing a foolproof disguise consisting of framed glasses that will catch the CDC off guard.

       There will be 365 days?   

       Sorry best I can do this late at night.

       The latest findings of the Large Hadron Collider will confirm that that there is a universe where every single Blatantly Idiotic prediction has come true, even in cases where it stands in contradiction to other Blatantly Idiotic predictions.   

       This universal largess will cause the reincarnated Walt Whitman to amend his famous quote from "I am large, I contain multitudes" to "I am large, but I am going on The Biggest Loser next season"

       Black Holes will be added to the States of the US, so they can be taxed for property taxes.
Then the government can have an excuse as to where all the money goes...

       The President will approve the Keystone Pipeline, and appoint the Keystone Cops to run the NSA

       //There will be 365 days?//   

       Actually there will be significantly fewer, and the internet will be slowed down by the millions of ill-informed armchair experts arguing about whether the days have become longer or the year shorter.

       [ytk] will live to see another sunrise.
8th of 7, Dec 19 2013

       I notice that last one didn't make it into the predictions for 2014.
Alterother, Dec 19 2013

       Such a shame [ytk] changed his title.
I will now call him Sir[ytk].
xandram, Dec 19 2013

       The fact that [8th] didn't get to write up the annual prediction post this year apparently made him tremendously unhappy, but I decided to let him do it anyway.
ytk, Dec 19 2013

       [ytk] I honor and respect your respect and sincerity, but really, THIS is the real thread for Blatantly Idiotic Predictions for 2014!! It is not written in stone who can post this annual fun thread and now with [MB]'s 2015- none of it is fun anymore. So sad that some people will be getting coal and dog shit in their Christmas stockings.
xandram, Dec 20 2013

       Don't harsh on Eighth. They're goddamn lucky to have found their true calling in life. It's not often that a person finds a gifted talent, and if they do and it involves high explosives then the only gracious thing for the rest of us to do is dig slit trenches and develop better reflexes.
Alterother, Dec 20 2013

       Oh, I just felt bad that [ytk] changed his title. I'm not harshing on 8th, I hope Santa brings him an entire litter of abandoned kitties from all over the world.
BTW - his title doesn't line up with the others....
xandram, Dec 20 2013

       Not you, [xan], I was responding to [Kwest]'s blatant trolling. You're a sweetcheeks, as usual.
Alterother, Dec 20 2013

       Oh, get a room …   

       Don't worry about slit trenches. We have never blown up anything or anyone we weren't supposed to.   


       At least, not much.   

       Well, maybe a bit, but nobody complained.   

       OK, so we got some reproachful looks, but it never went as far as a Board of Enquiry.   

       So, yes, it did, just once, but when we showed up and explained things from our point of view, they decided their was no case to answer, and ran away. And we'd just got the practical demonstration ready …   

       You can't reason with people like that, particularly when they're hiding behind a mound of earth and pleading that they have a family and responsibilities and don't want to die. Lack of moral fibre, we call it.
8th of 7, Dec 20 2013

       //It is not written in stone who can post this annual fun thread//   

       I don't really care that much who posts it. If [Aifh] really wants to make it /his/ thing that he ripped off from you who ripped it off from [Ian Tindale], then so be it. Consider it doing my part to see that he gets a tiny bit of joy in his life each year.   

       //THIS is the real thread for Blatantly Idiotic Predictions for 2014!!//   

       Well, I predict this thread is going to self destruct at some point in the future, because it bothers me aesthetically having an oddball entry in this category.   

       I suggest we all be gracious about the whole thing and go have Christmas dinner with that creepy uncle of ours that nobody really is quite sure /what/ he does for a living, maybe he's a solicitor or a business consultant or something like that, though he never does seem to be doing much actual work come to think of it, but anyway yes, we still really do have to go see him because he's family, at least we think he is, I thought he's on your side dear, no, well, anyway, the rumor is he has money and we'd hate to get cut out of his will because we couldn't show just a little holiday spirit, I know his house is dark and drafty, and yes, it's overrun with spiders, but that's just how it's going to be, so get your coats because the car is leaving in five minutes with or without you, no, I didn't mean you can just stay home, we're all going, and that's final.
ytk, Dec 22 2013

       Just so you know I didn't rip off Ian, if you read my idea, he really forgot!! (or didn't want to do it anymore). You are a bigger person for your graciousness. Merry Christmas or whatever you may celebrate. x0x
xandram, Dec 23 2013

       And we got Ian's permission ...   

       // creepy uncle of ours that nobody really is quite sure /what/ he does for a living, ... I know his house is dark and drafty, and yes, it's overrun with spiders, //   

       You never said that you're related to M'lord Buchanan ... on your partner's side, hopefully. Well well, what a small planet it is.
8th of 7, Dec 23 2013

       Damn. Looks like I was 7 years early.
