    I love the big hipe about the Mayan Calender. Yes it ends a huge cycle, but guess what, "IT STARTS OVER AGAIN". Yes there is suppost to be major wars and disasters according to the cycle, but we have seen that happening for a long time now. What is suppost to happen in the new cycle is that man will start looking at the world and the universe differently, ending the way we think now and becoming more enlightened. Lets hope they were right.

    My predictions for the next year-

    More and stronger naturel distasters than previous years.

    Some people will go totally nuts about the end of the world and cause problems.

    More fighting in the Middle East but more dictators will fall because of uprises by the common people.

    Problems with the presidential election in the USA causing riots.

    These aren't really that hard to predict and I hope that I am wrong. This should be an interesting year so try to enjoy it, just like you should everyday of your life.

          Predictions for 2012? Easy. There shall, in that time, be rumors of things going astray, and there shall be a great confusion as to where things really are, and nobody will really know where lieth those little things with the sort of raffia-work base that has an attachment. At this time, a friend shall lose his friend's hammer and the young shall not know where lieth the things possessed by their fathers that their fathers put there only just the night before, about eight o'clock.

                Win some, lose some

                I predict there will be very many predictions, and about half will come true.

                I predict that the world will end as it has so many other times before, right on schedule.

                I predict that an awful lot of people will be disappointed by their political representatives.

                I predict that I'll finally get my nerve up and hit the street, armed with a trusty trumpet, or flute, or sax, or maybe even a guitar and busk ... and miss a few notes here and there, just like I do during practice.
                sigpic Myself as Mephistopheles (Karen Koed's painting of me, 9 Nov 2008, U of Canterbury, CHCH, NZ)

                Gold is the power of a man with a man
                And incense the power of man with God
                But myrrh is the bitter taste of death
                And the sour-sweet smell of the upturned sod,

                Nativity,

                    I predict Greece will be out of the euro and will default.Ha,I guess everyone see that coming.
                    We'll also have elections here but no party will get 151/300 so we'll have a coalition of parties in the government(pretty much like we have now).More crappy parties(like "Ecologists") to enter the parliament.All our resources sold to foreign industries(even the petrol,gas etc that hasn't been "found" yet).Unemployment will reach Mars and of course dracmhas will have no value at the end of the year.You may see me coming to one of your countries. :P
                    USA will invade Iran.Duh.
                    Greece will qualify from the group round in Euro2012 with an impressive victory of 1-0 and a magnificent draw of 0-0.But we will be eliminated by Netherlands later on.
                    Olympiakos,Manchester City,Barcelona,Paris Saint Germain,Porto,Bayern will win their domestic titles.Real Madrid will win CHL though.Messi will be the top scorer.
                    Barcelona will have to settle with the Euroleague title as a european trophy.
                    Germany and Senegal will win their continental titles.Podolski and Chamak the top scorers.
