ADB Members Predict the Coming Year

This is Steven Petrick posting.

We had the annual company end of year/Christmas party last night. Mike Sparks's wife Kyla could not attend due to illness, but it was a pleasant time otherwise.

We have a sort of joke tradition where in each attendee is supposed to make a prediction for the coming year, but as it is sort of a joke, only I remembered what I had predicted.

Sadly, my prediction did not come true, and Osama bin Laden is still a free, if hunted, man. For the new year, I predict that the United States will begin to draw down its forces in Afghanistan in preparation for a full pullout.

SVC could not remember what he had predicted, but for the coming year he predicts that the elected members of the Tea Party will "go native", i.e., be suborned by the (Republican) establishment and lobbyist culture and accomplish none of their stated goals.

Leanna, who also could not remember her previous prediction, decided to predict for the coming year that SVC would be Gibbsed, frequently, very, very, frequently.

Mike Sparks simply predicted that he would be able to clean a lot of junk out of the warehouse in the coming year.

Jean predicted that she would finish and see released Prime Directive D20M Romulans.

Joel predicted the end of mankind as a supervirus reduces the world's population below the self-replication levels.
