Next year's news now

A bit late in the day, I have chanced upon the thoughts of Russian astrologer Pavel Globa:

"The global crisis of 2010 will strike the entire system and will thus transform the world order. “The crisis will last for ten years and will end by 2020. The European Union will fall apart, and so will NATO. Several European Unions will be formed instead: the South-European, the North-European, and the like. Germany will be in the alliance with France, whereas Russia and Ukraine will join the alliance with Eastern Europe,” the astrologist said".

Here's his track record:

"Globa’s most famous predictions that came true: the rise of Putin and Medvedev, the collapse of the USSR, the 9/11 terrorists acts, the decline of Fidel Castro. The list of his most famous predictions that did not come true to life include: Castro’s death in 2000, the bombing of Iraq in 2007, an attempted assassination of President George W. Bush"

Texan sharpshooter fallacy, anyone?

No consideration of astrolgers is complete without the bi-annual wheeling out of the tale of Kelvin Mackenzie and his letter of dismissal to The Sun's astrologer: "As you will already know..."

OT but important news:

I thought it might amuse the crowd to know that Mexico is once again the top export market for Christmas trees grown in Oregon.

I have, as you can imagine, been monitoring this for a while and my fears have now been calmed.

Perhaps your astrologer could have told me already.

There are things which cannot be predicted but there are also things which a bit of long term research will show are a good chance of happening.

Can he tell me what to have for supper?

I suspect he would recommend borscht.
