We love predictions
. Especially looking back on predictions that have since been proven incorrect
. I was thinking about the fact that a while back I predicted a certain lots-of-babies-having couple would stay together
when they have spectacularly broken up
and then I thought that a website full of pompous know-it-alls like us should be able to point to a bunch of predictions that we made in years past with the kind of confidence and assurance only an internet expert can muster that have been proven completely wrong. "By 2010 cloned dinosaurs will be common house pets." or "After the Peak Oil riots of 2009 we will all be living in igloos made of dead cloned dinosaur house pets." That kind of thing. So, if you please, show me your Metafilter comment wrongness.
I should also say that if you could restrict yourself to where you (or a past incarnation of you) was wrong that would probably be better because I kind of envisioned this more as a "Ha Ha look how earnest and wrongheaded I was back in 2005. Aren't I adorable?" rather than "Can you believe what a stupid jackass ButtPuzzle was in 2005? I have been totally vindicated by time! HaHaHaHa!"
