… That would be my 2007 Predictions. With only two weeks left in 2007, I can confidently state that my predictions for 2007 were more accurate than those of Sylvia Browne and just about every other professional “psychic” in the business.
Click the link and read for yourself what I predicted for the year, back on January 1 2007. I haven’t edited the post since it was published as you can confirm if you check with the Wayback Machine (from February 4th 2007 – the earliest I can find).
Let’s run through some of the correct predictions I made.
I correctly predicted Cyclone Sidr that caused so much damage to Bangladesh:
There will be a major typhoon causing much damage and loss of life in SE Asia.
I correctly predicted that Tiger Woods would have a daughter:
Tiger Woods and his wife will announce they are expecting a baby […] and it will be a girl.
I also correctly predicted Christina Aguilera’s pregnancy:
Christina Aguilera will also announce she is expecting a child.
As much as I have looked, I haven’t found even one psychic who predicted either of these two celebrity pregnancies.
I correctly predicted that John McCain, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama would announce their candidacies for President.
I correctly predicted that Tony Blair would step down as British Prime Minister and that Gordon Brown would replace him.
I correctly predicted that Snoop Dogg would get probation but not jail time.
I correctly predicted that “Brangelina” would stay together and adopt another child, but that they would not get married.
I correctly predicted that Lady Bird Johnson would die of natural causes.
For a comparison of how much better I was than the professional psychics, just look at this list of Sylvia Browne’s predictions. She was wrong about TomKat’s baby. Wrong about Brangelina. Wrong about J Lo and Marc Anthony. Wrong about Bush bringing the troops home. Wrong about property prices being “back up”. Wrong in just about everything she predicted. Unlike me.
And I don’t see any psychics as accurate as I was on the celebrity predictions. For example, see the daily mantra’s Psychic Prediction for Christina Aguilera that somehow missed the pregnancy that I spotted. Then we have Marlene Lombardi’s celebrity predictions that completely missed, as did California Psychics and Psychic Nikki.
Also, see these predictions from Jeffrey Palmer "The Psychic Detective." Funny, I don’t remember the “very strong earthquake centered near Los Angeles on March 13th 2007” or the “outbreak of a rare virus near or in the city of Boston in May 2007”. Admittedly we haven’t got to December 27th yet, so we still await the “event of global proportions [that] will occur on this date”. Mark your calendars.
So I beat all of these so called psychics. Congratulations to me.
Now, the cynics among you will probably say I ignored the predictions I got wrong and just concentrated on the hits. Well, I never claimed to be 100% accurate. And as Sylvia Browne said, only God is 100% accurate. Others may say that some of the predictions weren’t really that surprising. Well, at least I didn’t predict that Tiger Woods would win a golf tournament.
Of course, making obvious predictions, and then counting the hits and not the misses, is all that professional psychics do anyway. And I still think I did better than them. Remember that when, this year, we get the same bunch of lame playing the odds guesses, reprinted uncritically by a gullible media. And although these “psychic predictions” might look like just a bit of fun, remember that uncritically reporting this nonsense as if it were real gives cover for vultures like Browne to prey on the recently bereaved. They also waste police time by forcing them to follow up their made-up psychic “impressions”. I did better than any of them by just guessing.
If you’re still not convinced, I am available for psychic readings. I charge just $500 a pop which is still less than Sylvia. Just click the email link in the left hand column.
