Twenty Two: The Final Chapter


Itís that time of year again. The time of year when everyone and their dog waxes nostalgic about all the shit nobody cares about from the year past, and stupidly predicts the next year in the grim knowledge that when the next New Year comes along, nobody will remember that the dumbass predicted a bunch of foolish shit that turned out to be complete and utter balderdash.
I might as well go ahead and do it anyway. Just like I did last year (yes, a lot of this was pasted from last yearís final chapter).
Some of these links go to /. (these would be old stuff), S/N, mcgrewbooks.com, or mcgrew.info. As usual, first: the yearly index:

Last yearsí stupid predictions (and more):

I completed my seventh decade of life, turning 70 last April.
I pedicted that I would have another volume of Random Scribblings, because all it lacked was a table of contents and cover art. I still haven't made the art; when I go to Track Shack on 3rd and Laurel, there are never any trains until I leave. Oh, the HTML for that book is less than half done.
I did get Only Yesterday done, but I didn't write that, although it was as much work.
But Iíll also hang on to most of last yearís predictions.
But here's a new one: I predict that there will thankfully be no elections in 2023, at least here.
Someone will die. Maybe you, maybe me. Not necessarily anybody I know... we can only hope.
SETI will find no sign of intelligent life. Not even on Earth.
The Pirate Party wonít make inroads in the US. I hope Iím wrong about that one.
US politicians will continue to be wholly owned by the corporations.
Iíll still be a nerd.
Technophobic fashionista jocks will troll slashdot (but not S/N). I have no idea if that one or the following held up, anybody been there lately?
Microsoft will continue sucking.
The pandemic will continue plagueing us.
Happy New Year! Ready for another trip around the sun?
