  1. OK, it's my turn to call a forecast.

    Nothing would happen today. As an extension to my research about today, I also predict nothing will happen in this week of 19-25 December 2011. To elaborate, I predict that nothing in the list below will happen:

    - Greece will not go bankrupt
    - Europe will not go bankrupt
    - Euro will not collapse
    - US will not go bankrupt
    - Dow will not rise or fall by 1000 points
    - We will not see a black Monday, black Wednesday or black Friday
    - Israel will not go in official war with Iran
    - Pakistan will not go in official war with India
    - Portugal will not collapse

    I have arrived at this forecast using the ancient science of applying common sense. Any criticism is welcome, also those who use common sense in day-to-day trading are welcome to improve the forecast.

  2. A film crew is on location in the Arizona desert.

    One day an old Indian goes up to the director and says, "Tomorrow rain". The next day it rains.

    Next day the Indian goes up to the director and says, "Tomorrow storm" The next day there's a hailstorm.

    The director is impressed and hires the Indian to predict the weather. However, after several successful predictions, the old Indian doesn't show up for two weeks.

    Finally, the director sends for him. "I have to shoot a big scene tomorrow," he says. "What will the weather be like?"

    The Indian shrugs his shoulders and says, "Don't know. Radio is broken."
