Pre-Prognostication Post...

I'll post my new 2016 wild guesses about the future in a couple of days, but first
let's see how good I did last year...

1. The vortex returns and North America has another long cold winter.
2. Crude oil prices will bounce like a rubber ball back up by spring.
3. Li Ion battery chemistry is now able to drive a Tesla 400 mi on a charge... recharge in 30 min. will re-define the "gas station" experience as a place to relax and recreate for a half hour every 400 miles... I think - renewable breakthrough...
4. A major motorcycle brand will introduce a production hybrid
5. Major sub sea volcano makes news
6. Kryptos final message will be decoded
7. Genetic pharma breakthrough
8. Emilia Earheart's Lockheed Electra is found and brought to the surface
9. Major quake in Cali
10. Big news out of CERN in 2015...


1. Vortex happened YAY
2. Crude oil continues to tank... there's a BIG BOO
3. Wishful thinking... 270 mi range as of this writing.  BOO-HISS
4. Sort of... There are the random rumors about all of the major badges playing around with this. YAY
5.I'm going to claim this one... and this one,  YAY
6. Wow, part 4 still unsolved...  BOO
7. Yup, several news blurbs about breakthrough advances YAY
8. Nope   BOO
9. Lots of shaking, thankfully no major quake!  BOO
10. YES... a whole new class of particles!   YAY

So how did I do?  Looks like 50%  LOL so my crystal ball is no better than a coin toss!

After much pondering and the occasional cup of tea and nap, I have the 2016 prognostications nearly finished.  Stay tuned!
