2010 predictions from "The Morning Show"

I caught the following while channel hopping this morning. The program in question "The Morning Show" (Channel 7 (Australia 09:00 - 11:00) is standard morning talk show fare, pseudo-news mixed with thinly disguised infomercials.

They had some 'celebrity psychic' whose name escaped me (did anyone else in Australia catch the segment) making predictions for the coming year. These are the ones that stood out:

1. The Global Financial Crisis will get better either in April or in association with the number 4.

2. Obama will be great comfort to the people of the world following a major event (presumably bad).

3. A 'vision' of an ocean liner under water or lots of people drowning (Associated with 'Titanic').

4. A 'black cloud' hanging over Buckingham Palace.

5. Summer is going to be extraordinarily long and then the weather is going to 'go haywire'.

I did not have a chance to record the segment so these are from memory, I'm not sure if they give out transcripts, so I'm hoping someone else in Australia caught the segment and fill out the rest of the list.

Agreed, that was just awful. A lot of hedging of bets there, especially in the 'sunken ship' prediction this guy(?) basically says it might happen this year or next year or the year after which, is no prediction at all.

The celebrity stuff is the usual nonsense, it'll be interesting to look at this at the end of the year and see what can be twisted to fit.


FWIW here is the full list as an update to the one in the OP:

1. Mining sector will do well.

2. Economy goes up in April.

3. Summer will be longest ever, followed by really bizarre weather.

4. Cruise liner sinking or passengers drowning. No specific time-frame (eg any time after this year)

5. 'Black Cloud' over Buckingham Palace.

6. Obama gives great comfort after a major event (Bad)

7. Nicole Kidman/Keith Urban will have another child either through adoption or pregnancy (Male).

8. Brangalina relationship stronger than ever. No marriage

9. Mystery Man in Jennifer Annistons life.
