Psychic Psychic Predictions for 2014

http://paranormal.about.com/od/proph...s-for-2014.htm

I found the following Academy Awards prediction from Judy Hevenly to be rather amusing:
Quote:
Best Movie Comedy: American Hustle.
I'm not sure how American Hustle is going to win an Oscar category that doesn't exist. And from psychic Nikki:
Quote:
A great earthquake in Japan.
Sheesh! You're not even trying.

Brian

An ex-staff of Obama will publish an eye-opener book on the President and White House.
Whoa, that's really going out on a limb, what with these types of books coming out only every few months or so.

And a lot of dry heat in Australia.

Heavy rain in England.


Golly, this is easy. I must be psychic. Let me try a few more....

Strikes in France, tornadoes in the Mid-west, fighting in the Middle-east, a famous person will die ..

I should have taken this up years ago.

You forgot more scandal and talk about the Royal Family, a deadly airplane crash, and a well known company going under.

Most improbably, the 2014 elections see Texas turning blue.
I'd love to see that happen.

Y'all are missing the most astounding, earth-shattering, reality-questioning prediction. I can't believe it.

Eh, just claim that they sound "warmer" than modern storage mediums. I know some people that will flock to them.

"Oh. Are you still using that 'cloud' storage thing? I only keep my data on 5.25" floppies. You've probably never heard of them."

No!


My mother used to get me one of the tabloids that had predictions for the next year. They ran the gamut from a major earthquake in California to England's Royal Family doing something or other.
Not one of those psychics could tell me the important stuff, you know, like who will win the Kentucky Derby, a winning lottery number, what kind of grades I would get the next semester etc.

A discovery that diseases can be transmitted or transferred by pure thought from one location to another will be found.
It is now 6:58 Eastern Standard Time, 11 January, 2014. If anyone needs me I will be laughing until at least August 4th of next year.

Quote:
We will lose one of our past Presidents or First Lady this year after a prolonged illness.
This is meaningless. Several of the living ex-Presidents and First Ladies are in their late 80s or early 90s and several of them have been battling "prolonged illnesses" for years. Losing one in any given year is not unlikely.

Quote:
2014 will be a very interesting political year since we'll have the Fall elections coming, and I predict we'll have at least 2-3 congressmen resigning their offices before that time. I see a few more veteran lawmaker's losing their seats after the elections are over.
Water will continue to be wet.

Quote:
Programmers will discover a simple computer code or app that will end almost all future online computer viruses.
And I will now add another several months at least to how long I will be laughing.

Contamination of water in major cities.
Oh please that is just ludicri... oh never mind.

That the telephone company
Will have a special service that lets you
talk to the dead...oh Midnight Star

Weird Al--Midnight Star.

They do as long as you connect the floppy drives to your computer using Monster Cables.

Well that's already happened! OK David Cassidy is a former pop star, but you were right!!

Psychic Dawn predicts the following: Someone, somewhere in the world will do something really stupid, dangerous, or both, while under the influence of alcohol.


Dawn--Hey yall! Watch this!--Storm
