http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Titor

Awesome read.

Supposedly correct predictions that John Titor made are

Quote:
Titor gave technical details about his time machine that involved the use of mini-black holes. He stated that CERN would make an announcement pertaining to this within a year after he discussed it. In the fall of 2001, after John left, CERN issued a press release indicating the possibility of creating mini-black holes was realistic. The work being explored in this area was speculated upon some months prior to that time.

He stated that the IBM 5100 computer had special abilities that were unpublished by IBM. Numerous IBM engineers have come forward to confirm this claim.

He made numerous comments about Constitutional and civil rights changing in the United States.

He stated that mad cow disease would arrive and be downplayed in the United States.

Titor stated that WMDs would not be found in Iraq and that another war would be fought under the pretense of removing its nuclear capability.

He claimed that the U.S. government will assume that its citizens would prefer security rather than freedom. The present USA PATRIOT Act could be construed to overtly trade freedoms against the hope of greater security (some say these are Constitutional freedoms, and another phase is being planned which will allow federal agents to search and arrest citizens without a warrant.)

But *I'm* the guy who can't let it go. Right.

lol GMAFB. Go look through this thread. Who went on the tirade? Me, or Boro, who kept threatening to pick up his jacks and go home and either explicitly called me a troll a couple of times or subtly hinted at it. Just like you did. Which is actually a violation of the forum rules. Not that I give a ****, but c'mon. It's frankly galling to have you and Boro run around violating the forum rules and calling *me* a troll for doing nothing more than having a point of view and defending it.

Sorry, I don't roll over and quit posting just because Boro throws a hissy fit, nor when his buddies come by to pile on. That Boro gets incited over stuff to the point where he breaks the forum rules over it really has nothing to do with me, and has far more to do with Boro. I think your ideological biases have completely blinded you to whose conduct, if anyone's, was actually out of line in this thread.

Needless to say I have absolutely no apologies for anything I've done in this thread, and if there's anyone who ought to be called to the carpet for breaking forum decorum, you should look in the mirror, or guy find the guy who called other people trolls. That guy wasn't me.

LOL, what an immature post this is. It reminds me of when I was a kid and I would torture my younger siblings by asking, "Why are you so defensive, huh? Why are you so sensitive and defensive?"

At least have the balls to call the guy the name you are so obviously calling him.

Have an exam in about a half hour. As long as its not the 2nd essay question that he randomly picks, I'm good to go. (Second one is a comparison between MLK's letter from a birmingham jail and Obama's recent speech on race, lol)

Why did The Once And Future King suddenly start posting under his old account 'O.A.F.K.1.1' ??

His normal account stopped posting on the 15th and the dormant one took over from the 16th.

wtf

He warned us about the civil war though, that was nice:

Quote:
There is a civil war in the United States that starts in 2005. That conflict flares up and down for 10 years.
Real disruptions in world events begin with the destabilization of the West as a result of degrading US foreign policy and consistency. This becomes apparent around 2004 as civil unrest develops near the next presidential election.
The civil war in the United States will start in 2004. I would describe it as having a Waco type event every month that steadily gets worse. The conflict will consume everyone in the US by 2012 and end in 2015 with a very short WWIII.

Utah State Senator: The Gays Are Also The Muslims


Quote:
Utah State Sen. Chris Buttars: "Homosexuality will always be a sexual perversion. And you say that around here now and everybody goes nuts. But I don't care."
Quote:
“They’re mean. They want to talk about being nice. They’re the meanest buggers I have ever seen… It’s just like the Muslims.”
lol Utah

Saw this posted in the oil thread that just got locked:

Quote:
(a little ot) but can anyone explain why the the price of oil per barrel has continued to drop but since xmas lows it has gone up 20-30% at the pump nation wide.
This is because the oil that is used to make gas is actually a little different (i think lower quality) than the type of oil sold in the NY exchange. Normally, the oil they use to make gas in the US is cheaper, but because the market is so hairy right now everything is just weird.
