    Not being a prophet like y’all, I’m witholding my predictions and just wishing all of you the best year of your lives until 2015.

    The American public will prove (yet again) that they have the government they deserve by re-electing most of their “representatives.”

    There will be a scandal or embarrassing news involving criminality and/or gross incompetence on the Camp Humphreys relocation front. Also announcement or admission to further delay(s).

    There will be some sort of act (ignoring the expressed will of the people) involving the federal government attacking citizens in Washington or Colorado over legal marijuana.

    Miley Cyrus will be arrested.

    The price of gold will continue to drop.

    There will be no final deal with Iran within six months.

    There will be a terror incident at the winter Olympics.

    A Bush, Tony Iommi or Lemmy Kilmister will pass away.

    The pope will admit it was all bullshit, apologize profusely to the human race, recommend clergy in all countries be prosecuted for crimes against humanity and dissolve the Catholic church (and recommend other organizations follow suit) before stepping down and turning the keys of the Vatican over to the city of Rome to establish a museum.*

    Korean men will still be reviled as the worst examples of humans on the planet. Plastic surgery will continue rampant in Korea. My autobiography will come out and sell 10,000 copies.

    Tony Iommi? Why him? I must say though that I was very disappointed with the latest Sabbath CD…after all those years, one would think they could have come up with something better.

    My resolution is to stop drinking this year until which point that it is financially feasible.

    My prediction is that it will be quite a while before that happens.

    I am going to need help from you guys. I need you all to pick up my slack to make up for all the beers I won’t be drinking. I am just trying to look out for Ambev stockholders as well as keep balance and order in the universe. I am sure there are a few of you who are up to the task and are more than willing to meet the challenge.

    Correction: InBev is the company that was turning too much of my income into expenditure.

    Luckily for my liver, I am no longer in Korea. You can’t beat getting sloppy drunk for $3. Not until the next morning that is.

    Dokdo will be Korea’s :lol:

    Takeshima will be Japan’s

    Liancourt rocks will continue to remain largely unknown to the rest of the world

    Wait for it, Leon. I have lots to say but it will take some time. I add something to the list when it comes to mind. Wait a week or so.
