Last year about this time I revealed myself to the world as a psychic. I don’t show off or talk about my prodigious prognostic abilities very much. You know me, I’m the most humble guy in the world. On Dec. 30 of 2014 I posted Ten Incredibly True Predictions for 2015. Before I give you this years predictions, lets take a look at how I did last year so we can establish my credibility as a soothsayer.
A lot of people and religious gurus like to predict the end of the world every year. Not me. I’m not afraid to swim against the current. I resisted peer pressure at all the psychic meetings and held fast to my prediction that the world would not end in 2015. Phil-1, rest of psychics and religious zealots- 0. I’m going out on a limb here, but I’m going to point to the left field bleachers and call another anti-apocalyptic shot: The world will not end in 2016. Make your plans accordingly.
I predicted that President Obama would smoke marijuana in the White House. He hasn’t been caught yet, but last March he said that if enough states decriminalize marijuana the federal government might change the law. Oddly, recreational marijuana use became legal in Washington D.C. in 2015. Sure, he wasn’t caught, but if you put the puzzle pieces together it sounds like the Oval Office might be getting a little trippy now and then. Prediction: In 2016 the legalization of recreational marijuana will not happen, but it will be a major topic in the Presidential election.
Here’s my most specific and accurate prediction from that post a year ago. I predicted that Kourtney Kardashian would dump her troublesome husband, Scott Disick, and take up with musical moron Justin Bieber. Go on, click that link above and read prediction #7 from a year ago. Then click this link from October. Nailed it. Here’s my prediction for 2016: Justin and Kourtney will marry, creating a blockbuster media bonanza for the Kardashians and Justin Bieber. Bieber will then collaborate with Kim Kardashian’s husband, Kanye West, on what will become the most popular album of the year.
So, I nailed three of 10 predictions from a year ago. Here’s a few more predictions for 2016:
1. Norway will become a world power and The Phil Factor will become your source of Norway news. Over the past year two specific and unusual groups of people started visiting my blog: Hindi’s looking for love (you’re afraid to click that link, aren’t you? Go ahead, it’s ok. I promise.) and Norwegians. The rise in Norwegian Phil Factor interest can only mean one thing: hot Norwegian singles near you are reading #ThePhilFactor. For all my new Norwegian friends I’d like to say Godt nytt ar! If you know how to say ‘The Phil Factor’ in Norwegian please put it in the comments, and come back in 2016 for all your Norwegian dating needs.
2. The End of Isis: First off, is it ISIS or ISIL? I’ve seen it both ways. Is it an acronym for something, or are they just ripping off the mid 1970’s TV show The Secrets of Isis? Here’s my prediction: The makers of The Secrets of Isis show will sue the terror group over copy write infringement and win, causing the terror group to have to use another acronym, which no one will be able remember, resulting in the demise of the group. See? Lawyers are good for something!
What do you think of my predictions? Do you have any of your own?
Happy New Year to all of you. I look forward to another 365 days of us being virtual friends. Also, thank you to the National Security Agency for following The Phil Factor. Thanks for keeping us safe. You guys and gals rock.
Have a great weekend! ~Phil
