I beg you, sir! Do not speak of the evil ones in this room! ...That's that skylar's influence, isn't it?... she's corrupted this place and infected it with the seed of satan...a.k.a. Man Utd.

Anyway, they ain't gonna win - they're on their way out. They've started losing already - as in last night's loss to Zalaegerszeg in Hungary. They may not make it to the Champion's League this year if the fail to beat them at Old Trafford next time ! Ha! That will be met with much rejoicing where I live.

Chant with me folks! 'We hate Man U, we hate Man U, we hate Man U...'

1. The houses of learning will shift to a lower plateau, endangering the energies of the heavens.
2. The houses of political thought will shift to an even lower plateau of mire and malignity.
3. Two warriors will seek to destroy a ring of puissance.
4. A person of great renown will be set upon in the night but will overcome, further bearing fruits of fortune and affluence.
5. A winter will steal upon the land, plunging the mirth of those therein to avenues of climatic lows.
6. A great carrion bird will descend upon the flocks of the gullible.
7. An obsolete truth will whisper in to the dreams of many.
8. A mouse will tame the lion.
9. The tongues of many will be silenced, as a recundite personage engages in fatuous activity.
10. An evil giant will stumble on a small red fruit, causing joy to the unknown masses.

The Cincinnati Bengals, after raising the hopes of the City with hype and a preseason win against Buffalo, will proceed to win no more than 5 games during regular season.

I guess I inadvertantly said that Man U would only have success in the premiership... spookily accurate since I wasn't paying much attention to the Champions League qualifying... I think that as long as they don't give an away goal, they should pass through... if not, then Phil Neville might not see much time again for a while... if Escude makes his move from Rennes

We'll see in a fortnight...

edit: on a related story... oh fuck

Y'know, those are just about vague enough to come true.

I go further to predict that the biologically dead shall not rise.

Hah! I don't know what gives you the idea I'm a Man U fan... No, no, no, no! Please do not think so ill of me. It's all the crazy texan's fault

quoting tyler:
Yes
Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr (and you really deserve it today!)

And my own predictions? Hmmm..

1) Tyler will produce some life-changing scientific findings, revealing noises to the world that have never been heard before.
2) Roach will not be impressed
3) Zorro will be all tied up, and therefore won't notice
4) Zebby will be too busy walking in the rain for it to bother him
5) When Neo hears of it, he'll think of Twinkie (and who could blame him? poor boy)
6) Spungo will blame it all on me!

Actually, I think Zorro will be tying up someone else (an important distinction). Remember, he's a top...

7) And Xanthine will make a smart-ass comment.

Some things I predict: By Audrie Ryan
1) Zorro will probably be tied up, considering one of the cool links on his profile is bondage.com
2) Everything explained in this post WILL come true, to the delight and dismay of many: http://www.geekculture.com/ultimatebb/Forum9/HTML/000694.html
3) A woman will breastfeed a kitten back to health.
4) I will gain a geeky boyfriend either by will or by force!!!
5) A person will buy a Christian music compilation CD the same time as he/she buys the new Marilyn Manson CD, causing the cashier's head to explode into tiny bite-sized morsels idealy used as meat for Taco Bell's tacos.
6) Kutin will forget how to operate the trash compactor and use it as a drawer again.
7) I will wake up hanging upside-down from the rafters of my roof with a dirty word tattooed on my butt.
8) World peace will be accomplished just as shotguns are at low-low affordable prices
9) Michael Jackson will be referred to as "The Mummy Returns"
10) I will buy a box of Cracker Jacks in hopes of finding the other piece to my heart.
Those are my predictions. BEWARE!!! BEWARE!!!!

I will still be single. I will be tied up. I will tie up way more people than will tie Me up. I will be at ITW 2003. I will be in at least one adult movie. Armageddon will finally take place leaving no reasonable predictions for 2004...........Z

*looks at Skylar*

It's funny you should say that, seeing as I never did tell you that little tale... but other than that, I've hoped, but not had an opportunity, to enjoy any of the heavy rain we've had recently. It's all hot and humid, but dry, though, at the moment.

But no, no, Skylie, I'll be too zoned out in front of the Mac to notice...

I will be frightened by Zorro and he will probably be the perpetrator of the dirty word tattood on my butt fiasco.
And there will be a 2004, for that is when I am going to become a nun. Ha!

Audrie becomming a nun, Where did that "When will your hell freeze over" link?

Whew, she won't remember my part in our plans Zoro, sorry but looks like your the fall guy.

My predictions for 2003:
1.) Spam will still be filling my in box, and I'll still defend the right of people and orginizations to send it.
2.) I will post a very contraversial thread in the Rant Raves and Rumors that will make everyone mad at me, except Zoro who will think it was funny.
3.) U will realize that OS 11 isn't as good as OS 10, and fnnly switch to Linux.
4.) Pigs will fly, as they are catapulted out of Zorro's party amusments, during the test flight (before he deams it safe enough to use as a BSDM tool).
5.) Zoro will fall in love again, but never admit it to the girl due to his fears of commitment and rejection. She will walk out of his life thinking that she was just another one of Zoro's sex flings, and leave Zoro a broken man. Sorry, Z, we'll be here for you.
6.) THEY will catch up to Nayt, and realize that he is wothless, and give up. Just then the other secret orginization SOME PEOPLE will want to know why THEY were so intrested in him and partake in a an even eviler plot than that of THEM. Someone on the board will make a "SOME PEOPLE" account to make fun of Nay's parinioa, and SOME PEOPLE will in turn get rid of said poster.
7.) I'll eat pizza at least once.
8.) Neo will break up with twinkle toes after a huge argument about something she did that he deems dangerous.
9.) The next day he will e-mail the cutest cyber card there is, and a note telling her how wrong she was. She will take him back under the condition that next time he goes with her.
10.) Audrie will kill Kutin when Kurtin:
a.) leaves something important in the "drawer" and acidently compacts it.
b.) Confessess his undying love for her, and threatens suicide when she tells him that she is in love with a Geek and not him.
c.) by accidnet when she is backing out of the driveway.
d.) everyother day for the rest of their natural lives, just for fun... and reseructs him each time with Necromancy which she learned from Martha Stuart's special episode "How to keep your home clean, bring back the dead, use flowers from the garden to make table center peices and get caught for insider trading all in the same week."

Or untill the priests decide that your no longer getting your predictions from the right gods and throw you in a viper pit.. In that instance, just hope that Apollo still deems you 'chosen' and saves your life..

Well, if the first happens, the second would too, and I would relent and go with her, it's a good thing she enjoys dominating, though it's not likely that she'd do anything that I deem too dangerous..

A couple more predictions...

1. I will become disgusted with American culture and attempt to swim for the British Isles for a change of scenery.
2. I'll be picked up by a French fishing trawler, thereby damning myself to having to try and speak that bloody annoying language.
3. Sky will find a geek guy who likes Bruce Springsteen and fall in love.
4. I'll make it to Ireland, only to be shot for being a Catholic.

Oh, my. Where did you get your insider telepathy???? Actually, I've only hit Kutin with my car once, and completely by accident. See, he ran into the car and made me think I hit him. While he was laughing I tapped him with my car. (While going somewhere between 10-20 mph.) > Evil Smiley!!!

BTW, we're going to live forever so ha! And I WILL be a nun, for the Eagles vowed never to get together again unless hell does the very thing that you wanted it to. HA! I say to you, HA!

Now I know who to blame when I'm hanging from my rafters...but I'll forgive you two, so long as I get to dye your car pink with glitter in it and take snapshots of you two in underoos, holding hands. *Thanks, spugo!*

I don't know any British chaps, no...

Funny, ol' Springsteen caused quite a stink where I am because of his insistance to bring back festival seating. Seems everyone here is still reeling from the Who concert way back when (Whoo! Got us into the record books with that concert...).

But I like Springsteen. Fantastic fellow. And he wrote "Born in the USA," so that's extra points right there.

skylar: Oh, come on... you can't say something like that and then not tell me...
Apologies for baiting you. I could explain, but then, if I did, I'd probably get banged up in a lunatic asylum.

GameMaster: U will realize that OS 11 isn't as good as OS 10, and fnnly switch to Linux.
...? I think the first thing to do is to buy a Mac OS 9 T-shirt. Followed by getting new ICQ, AIM and GeekCulture accounts which have "Mac OS 9 user" somewhere in the name. And finally, hang a neon "Mac OS 9 user" sign in front of the house.

GameMaster not being a Mac user in the first place, I guess I can understand him being mistaken, but quite why everyone else persistently believes that I run X (not 10) no matter how many times I tell them, I know not. And it annoys me how rapidy Mac users have shunned and forgotten their Mac heritage. Mac OS 9 is not a bad OS, and I'm still running it, and it is not all evil and dreadful like Mac OS X users like to make out. And I run an old clone, so there is no need in nagging at me to buy it all the time - it won't run.

And in case you've forgotten GameMaster, I already HAVE Linux on this machine, AND I'm sure I've explained elsewhere here to you just why it is that I don't use it.

I thought that'd strike a nerve, but wow.... I didn't know that you were a OS 9 person, I figured you'd not be able to live without the command line that OS X gives you (and I have no frelling idea why I wrote 10 and not X, I know it is OS X... anywho). I still think that sometime next year you'll end up running a Linux box as your main system (even if it has nothing to do with feelings about OS 11 or OS X). Sorry U.

And there will be a 2004, for that is when I am going to become a nun. Ha!


um, gee, I can't remember the last time My name and a geekettes butt were mentioned in the same sentence. I guess as long as I am frightening all will be good. Out of curiosity, what dirty word would geekettes have tattood on their butts.?...........Z

5.) Zoro will fall in love again, but never admit it to the girl due to his fears of commitment and rejection. She will walk out of his life thinking that she was just another one of Zoro's sex flings, and leave Zoro a broken man. Sorry, Z, we'll be here for you.

A: awww thanks, it seems in the end I've always been able to fall back on other geeks for support >;o) ........Z

no, what is the name of this new love, I need to dump her before it begins......lol

For me, it's probably be a big "Z" Or perhaps "Dirty", if we want to get really cheesy.

He he..."geekette"....I've never heard that term before...it's cute.

Er, she's never heard the term "geekette with as long as she's been on the boards?

Zorro, if I told you that, I'd be breaking the rules of being an orcle... I can't tell anything that would change the out come, that would mean it doesn't come true and that is bad for buissness.

GameMaster: Users who need command-line access need Mac OS X why? There is command-line access in other unices, as well as in Windows 2000. Windows, *NIX and Mac OS all support scripting too (I've been trying out JScript recently in WSH, weird but cool), so what would be nice is JScript for Mac OS (I prefer the JavaScript syntax over AppleScript), which given the open nature of the Mac scripting system is possible if anyone wanted to do it.

I run Mac OS 9 not out of choice, so much as the fact that there is insufficient speed and graphics power in a 604e Mac with a Mach64VT video chip, so I can't run 9. Which, if I was mentally strong enough to be proud of what I have to the point of being able to ignore all those who flout X around me online, wouldn't be an issue, as I do like 9, even more so after 2000 committed suicide on me earlier. I'm not, though, and I've found that running Mac OS alone is hard enough a choice to make.

As for using Linux, it is perfectly possible that I could, assuming a) I got a new computer to run it on, or b) I could ever work out why going from a heavy-paging 64 Mb system to a 144 Mb system meant that it runs slower now than it did before, with no obvious reason for slow down. There's more than that to worry about (think about the fact that I'm not running it now).

Actually, the idea that I might gain the motivation to learn Linux and go solving all of this, or find a Linux parner-in-crime (preferably female I can't resist adding) is in interesting one...as it is one that I like the sound of. However, I have enough false hopes as it is, without having them added to *sigh*

And yes, I am aware that I've not added any contributions but then, I have no idea what the bear future holds, none whatsoever.

quoting Roach:
But I like Springsteen. Fantastic fellow. And he wrote "Born in the USA," so that's extra points right there.
Yippee! I have yet to disagree with any of your musical tastes, Roach. However, it's extremely unlikely that we agree on everything, so I'll bet that Flogging Molly are a terrible, terrible band (as soon as I get hold of a dang CD, that is)

quoting Zeb:
Apologies for baiting you. I could explain, but then, if I did, I'd probably get banged up in a lunatic asylum.
I'm prepared to take that risk

Then I'll have to keep My shields at maximum. I can keep them at bay easy enough, it's the sneaky ones that seem to slip by My defenses......Z

You'll lose the bet.

They're good.... and they even play the uilleann pipes. Howzat?

I'd reccomend a cd, but they're both so bloody marvelous, I couldn't choose. As it stands, their two albums are "Swagger" and "Drunken Lullabies"

Uilleann pipes? Lol! I'll listen out for them. I was broke until last Friday (when all my aunts and uncles started giving me cash handouts for passing my exams. Say it with me: "sweeeeeet!") and now I can't find either of their albums in any local record stores

Heh, it might be a problem finding them in Britain... They're based in the US, I think. And they're an underground band...

You could always try Amazon.com... But you'd need a credit card.
