Top 5 Predictions For 2011
TOP 5 PREDICTIONS FOR 2011
Overview: It's time for our annual tradition of making our best guesses as to what the coming year holds in store for all of us. In past years we have correctly foreseen the building of an Iraqi water park, the death of Patrick Swayze and Ted Kennedy and Hillary Clinton's failure to be elected president (when everyone else was certain it was imminent).
Criteria: This is the one time of the year when our rankings don't matter; we list each and every one of our predictions and traack them all year. The actual top 5 are organized more for entertainment purpose than for our belief in the strength of each prediction. It's wide open; from sports to celebrity deaths, politics to the shaky economy, anything and everything can be touched upon in our annual list of predictions.
Rob's Notes: In 2010 I correctly predicted a resurgence in serial killers, Lindsay Lohan's stint in rehab and Jay Leno, Conan O'brien and Larry King all changing or losing their jobs! This year, I've shot for completely different types of predictions.
