The Great Posterity Thread

Postby exploited » Sat Apr 25, 2015 2:57 pm

Time to put your opinions to the test. I have bookmarked this thread and set various alarms to go off every year on this day. Submissions for this years points will be accepted for the next 72 hours, after that any revisions or changes will be voided.

It's a simple idea: make a prediction that you are confident will happen. For a valid prediction, you must provide two bits of information: what specifically is going to happen, and when. Each valid prediction is worth a point. You can earn an extra half-point by correctly identifying why it will happen. The person with the most points in a year will win internet fame, PCF gratitude, and $20 from yours truly. If I win, I'll spend the $20 on beer or weed, and burn or drink one down to all of you.

Rules:

1. Nothing so generic that you are guaranteed points. I'll be the judge of this, and your prediction will be affirmed or denied within the 72 hour time period.

2. Your prediction must include a specific name, date and activity.

Acceptable: "Barack Obama will swear on public TV in April of 2017, because a heckler hits him with a bag of peanuts."

Unacceptable: "A President will offend people sometime in 2017."

3. You have a one month grace period for prediction dates.

4. All predictions must take place at least three months from the date they are made.

5. Predictions made more than a year away will not count towards points until the current year has expired. So if I make a prediction about something in 2017, it won't count for points until 2016.

6. Rules are subject to change, so don't try to get clever and bypass the spirit of posterity.

Section 215 of the Patriot Act, allowing warrantless mass surveillance by the NSA, will be repassed in a more explicit form in August of 2015. The reason most cited by the administration will be the ongoing terrorist threat, with origins specifically in Syria.

Hmmm... I'm afraid that is too vague. They could be nominees in all but name at any point over the next two years.

Are you predicting a win for Clinton and Bush in July of 2016? Include why, if you get that it's worth a half point extra.

My goats, in sum, will give birth to at least six kids and no more than twelve. This will happen within the last week of May or the first week of June, 2015. This event will happen because they are pregnant. :ymparty:

Yes they will. Why, name recognition (and the American electorate are sheep).
