So I post about the Dow in free fall and the next day, in the face of worldwide losses, it manages a slight gain.

I predicted a victory for Hillary.

I thought the Rays would cave and the Cubbies were going all the way.

I liked New Coke.

(sense a pattern?)

So here’s my prediction for the day:

I will NOT win the lottery this year. No way. No how.

Take that fate!

Update: You have GOT to be kidding me. I posted this at 3:50. In the next ten minutes, the Dow dropped 150 points. It ended 128 down…. It seems my powers of anti-prediction are incredible and nearly instantaneous.
