Fun:Predictions

From RationalWiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Necker cube.svg Tired of laughing? RationalWiki has a slightly more serious article about Predictions.

The Fun:RationalWiki Predictions page is a simple tool to allow users to make nonsense predictions, in the spirit of our other page with much added snark. Predictions can be about anything as long as it's funny and snarky. Once a prediction is settled, it will be archived as correct or incorrect.

Vote up (green) if you agree with the prediction, down (red) if you disagree, or meh (amber) if you don't care.

When adding predictions, try to present statements in a way that makes them easy to judge as true or false when the excrement hits the rotating blades.
