^ That prediction came true.

I only bugged him a few times. I was very late getting back from a walk in London, and we had to hustle like crazy so we wouldn’t miss our train.

I predict that I will still be a Beatles/Harri/Floyd fan, and possibly a bit better acquainted with Muse. I will have acquired a bass guitar, if all goes as planned. I will hopefully have added at least half a dozen more Harrison and Pink Floyd albums to my collection. @pepperland and I will still correspond, and he will still reply late and appleogise profusely, and I will magnanimously forgive him. a-hard-days-night-george-9 The Offbeats will still feature yours truly as lead singer, and we will be even awesomer than we are now a-hard-days-night-george-10 and perhaps I will have finally succeeded in convincing at least one of my bandmates to sing lead or at least backup (but don’t count on it). I will be a year older than I am now, and I will still have blood in my veins. It will be summertime in the Northern Hemisphere, and winter in the Southern Hemisphere.   

Mostly correct. I don’t have a bass, but I do have an electric guitar. I haven’t heard from peppy in a while and I haven’t gotten that many new albums — but I have gotten a few. The Offbeats still feature yours truly as lead singer, and we have gotten slightly awesomer, but I haven’t managed to harass anyone into singing.

Also, while I’m here, I hereby predict that I will have heard all of the Floyd’s studio ablooms and not just most of them. a-hard-days-night-paul-5

Yep!

I should probably do one, though I don’t know why this thread hasn’t been locked yet.

 

In the world:

-Trump will lose the election, throw a hissy fit.

Damn.  I wanted this one to be true.  I sincerely thought it would be, too.

-A few more beloved musicians, actors/actresses, and celebrities will die.

Bingo!

-The supervolcano at Yellowstone will not erupt… again.

What a surprise.  This one ended up being true.

-We will have another disturbingly warm winter.

It’s like I’m psychic.

-We will not be any closer to proving the existence of space aliens.

Yep.

-We will not be any closer to proving the existence of ghosts.

Yep.

-We will not be any closer to hearing Carnival Of Light or the Beatles version of Now And Then.

I should play the lottery.

In the Beatles Bible:

-Three or four more regulars.

Is this one true?  I haven’t been keeping track.  I think so.

-A few brief reappearances from former members.

I think Mr. Kite showed his face this past year.

-trcanberra and HongKongLady will be married (Gotta include at least a few sure bets, though big-headed me thinks they’re all sure things)

I am so smart.  I am so smart.  S-M-R-T… I mean S-M-A-R-R-T.

-Joe will add much new content to the main site.

I think that things cooled down for a while while he was working on finishing the book, but yes.

In my life (I love you more) :

-I will have a job (Oh God , please let this one be true).

Damn.  I wanted this one to be true.

-The carpal tunnel will come back a few more times (Oh God , please let this one be false).

Damn.  I wanted this one to not be true.

-I will have a new laptop bought with my new job money.

This one is semi-true.  I actually got a new laptop for Christmas three months after writing this post.

-I will still be a Beatles fan. (Need at least one sure bet in each category)

I’m like Nostradamus, except less vague and full of crap.

-I will discover a new band I like (I hope so).  

Yes.

 

Thirteen and a half out of sixteen are true on some level or other.  That’s a mid-B grade.

Well, you’ve got Martha, Me, Elementary Penguin, SgtPeppersBulldog, and I’m sure I’ve forgotten someone else… (sorry to whoever I’ve forgotten!!)

But we lost Evangeline, and technically Dark Overlord. And trcanberra/HongKongLady, though they can come back whenever we need them… (and Mark Busby, depending on when he died… I wasn’t around for that)

So a net loss. But new members. It’s up to you to make your mind up if you got that one…a-hard-days-night-george-4

a-hard-days-night-george-10No, really, my favourite lady to take Beatley holidays in the UK with. The lady is ALWAYS a delight. Apart from those few occasions she isn’t. But don’t tell her I said that. Remember, always…

That walk that took me too long was mainly to see if I could find the Princess Diana Memorial Water Fountain. I never made it to the Fountain because I remembered that I wanted to go back to the Buckingham Palace gift shop.

Thankfully, just a few months later, I was back in London and RN and I got to go see the Fountain properly.

Are we starting this thread again yet? I wasn’t here for the last one, and I would like to share four of my predictions in time for next year:

I will have bought Revolver (most likely on vinyl) 

I will be on the Apple rooftop with my number of posts here.

I will go out on bike rides more often.

I will get fairly good GCSEs, and don’t have to resit maths or English.

How can you say we’re not any closer, though? If they do someday prove the existence of aliens or ghosts, or release Carnival Of Light from the vaults, then wouldn’t we be closer now than we were a year ago? You saying that we are not any closer is not a fact. You are making the assumption that none of those things will ever be known to us by saying we are not any closer… So basically you are just making another prediction… a-hard-days-night-paul-10

The wow partical, also we discovered fossils of alien microbes on mars.

So aliens did exist and probably do exist. Aliens shouldt be lumped in with ghost.

Just cause we arent getting independece day doesnt mean aliens dont exist.

I’m not sure you know what you mean. 

How can you know that there have been no major developments? What if it’s the “aliens” who find us first? You wouldn’t say that there have been no advancements on every other planet in every other galaxy in this universe, would you? Because that’s neither a prediction nor a fact. That’s called making things up. This thread is about first predicting, and then saying what reality is. 

But speaking of reality, I think it’s important to note that it is relative and can vary from person to person. Maybe you have never experienced the presence of a ghost or an alien, but that cannot be said of every other being on this planet. To many, ghosts have already been proven to exist. Maybe did you want to use “I statements”?
