Post your predictions for 2006

I predict that in 2006 there will be an earthquake with a magnitude of 6.7 or greater in Southern California.

I predict that there will be a very big fight here in otter between several key members. I also predict that Bandoman will reveal to the world that he is, in fact, Groucho.

Oh yeah and I predict that there will be mass flooding in Oregon, specifically around my neighborhood. Please send a life raft for me and my kids and my cats. My husband knows how to swim.

I'm thinking of the one that they have been talking about, the one that runs under the city of Los Angeles.

Newport-Inglewood Fault Zone


TYPE OF FAULTING: right-lateral; local reverse slip associated with fault steps

LENGTH: 75 km

NEAREST COMMUNITIES: Culver City, Inglewood, Gardena, Compton, Signal Hill, Long Beach, Seal Beach, Huntington Beach, Newport Beach, Costa Mesa

MOST RECENT MAJOR RUPTURE: March 10, 1933, MW6.4 (but no surface rupture)

SLIP RATE: 0.6 mm/yr

INTERVAL BETWEEN MAJOR RUPTURES: unknown

PROBABLE MAGNITUDES: MW 6.0 - 7.4

OTHER NOTES: Surface trace is discontinuous in the Los Angeles Basin, but the fault zone can easily be noted there by the existence of a chain of low hills extending from Culver City to Signal Hill. South of Signal Hill, it roughly parallels the coastline until just south of Newport Bay, where it heads offshore, and becomes the Newport-Inglewood - Rose Canyon fault zone.

Speaking of Groucho, I haven't seen him post in a week or so. Is he on vacation? Did he mention that he was going to disappear for awhile?

Now, if I were to get 'jiggy' with them, would it be a threesome or a foursome?

This year I can't make my standard new year prediction that the Pope will die, because he finally did. I guess I need to pick a new death watch subject.

I predict at least a 6.5 earthquake at the New Madrid fault line centered about 50 miles north of Paducah, Ky.

See, I go for the details.

I predict that England will reach the semi-finals of the World Cup.

USA will just scrape through the first round.

I'm talking about soccer in case anyone didn't know

In 2006, there will be 365 days.

Wait, what was that? What do you mean this is not a prediction?

I predict that Bush himself will go looking for Bin Laden only to come across an old crashed out ship to Bin Laden used to own. Then Bush will come back to the U.S. but with an eel in his ear that causes him to do whatever Bin Laden wants.

I was considering predicting the opposite of that but I felt more sure of the earthquake one.
