2016 Prediction Contest!

Now that the 2105 Death List contest is in the past, I have a new contest for the next 12 months. Because of certain complaints from Bill Cosby and Beiber about their names appearing most often in the lists, I am moving in another direction.

Every year the Skeptics Guide to the Universe does a beginning of the year predictions for the next year. So I am going to do the same...

Rules:

* List 10 predictions for the next 365 days (Feb 8, 2017)

* Make them concise as to be verifiable to a certain degree of accuracy. (not 5 sigma, but if I will be the judge of it!)

* Post them as a reply to this thread and I will post them to the MCHY Contest Forum for you.

* Deadline is midnight Feb 7.

* Prizes will be announced in the next day or two.

Examples (good):

* China's Yutu rover finds concrete evidence of other mechanical landings on the moon NOT from Earth.
* God shows up in the form of a gigantic chocolate cookie over Cuba and drops golden coins to the populace with Lao-Tzu's face on them while singing Wang Dang Doodle in blackface. (unless God is black to begin with)
* 10 black people are nominated for Oscars.
* Rush Limbaugh overdoses from Oxy and tequila in Thailand.

Examples (bad):

* There is an earthquake in South America.
* A famous band breaks up.
* Jim says something idiotic on his website.
* A republican is found to guilty of something they have vocally been against their whole lives.

Git 'er dun honkies!

Oh yeah... there are three prizes again, depending on amount of correct GUESSES.

That would be too easy anyways. It's like predicting the sun will rise in the morning.
