Predicting the Future

Predicting the future with accuracy isn't easy. I've tried it before with limited success. But today I'm going to make three very specific predictions about the near future. In less than a week, we'll know how accurate I will have been.

Let's begin.

Prediction #1

Tomorrow morning (Saturday the 27th of February 2010) the Johannesburg contingent of the USS Dauntless (or "Away Team Alpha" as they are known) will be getting together to donate blood en masse. Here's the best part: you're welcome to join us!

If you'd like to donate blood with us, or just share in some awesome Star Trek conversation, meet us at McDonald's in Bruma for a hearty breakfast at 10:00am. After breakfast, we'll head across the road to the local SANBS branch and donate some blood.

Hope to see you there!

Prediction #2

On the evening of Wednesday the 3rd of March 2010, there will be a gathering called Joburg Sceptics in the Pub! Yay!

We'll be meeting at Dros in Cresta Shopping Centre at 19:00. We've been seeing new faces at SiTP every month. This time we hope to see yours!

Prediction #3

In the next few days, Simon Halliday over at Amanuensis will be posting the next edition of Carnival of the Africans. If you've written something sceptical or sciencey either in or about the African continent recently, please head over there and send it to him.

Right, so, give it a week and let's see how well my predictions hold up!
