Science Continues To Do Big Things
Predictions For 2014
So, I made four more high probability predictions for 2014. They are:
1) The sun will continue to rise in the East and set in the West (duh!).
2) I will finally get to see the 2nd half of Breaking Bad’s final season (I think this will qualify as a self-fulfilling prophecy).
3) There will be more failed predictions by the psychics (another duh).
4) The JREF’s Million Dollar Challenge will remain unawarded.
See? I’m staying on the safe side with my predictions.
I was doing pretty well, until earlier this past week, when the local morning news served up an unexpected spoiler. God damn it!
The other moment goes back to 1991 in my young curmudgeon days. Revlon had a shampoo that was great until they changed the formula. In a commercial featuring Cindy Crawford and another model, the point was made that the change was a bad idea, but they changed it back and, as Crawford points out, it’s better than ever.
That’s not how it works, Cindy. Either it’s been changed back or it’s better than ever. It can be both.
I didn’t have a recommendation for this week, but I had just watched this Akira Kurosawa film, so I went with it. It’s Kurosawa’s telling of Shakespeare’s MacBeth. Somewhat overdramatic in its acting, the film has some excellent imagery and haunting moments.
