They think they knew...


Many self-proclaimed prophets are going to have (or having) their 15 minutes of fame during the first part of this month with all their blah blah’s about what’s going to happen for the rest of the year.

For instance, they will cite that a starlet will have an affair with actor Y and that Actor X will sire a child. I watched with disdain and have thought, "to what planet did I come from that I’m going to care about the carnal affairs of celebrities. " NEXT!

Or, they will predict that:

1. Strong storms will visit the archipelago (major DUH)

2. Earthquakes, too (Hellooo, we’re in the Pacific Ring of Fire)

3. Fire will broke (gimme a friggin’ break)

4. A prominent official will be ousted (Da who, La Gloria? fresh news eh!)

5. A celebrity couple will split (again, who cares)

The Election will continue despite opposition (to which again I don’t care and to which I think is pretty much obvious)


What I’m waiting for these blabber mouths is to state the SPECIFIC name, actual casualties, the degree and latitude of its location and when will it happen.

To counteract any skeptics and the proliferation of an ounce of intelligence, they would declare that “God will ultimately decide.” BUT OF COURSE you bunch of dolts!

Personally, I consider all these trash talk irrelevant. The likes of Madam Auring and her minions are the reason Senator Jingoy Estrada or Lito Lapid can make movies and join the senate.

There would be a hole lot fewer "profits" in the world if we followed the old testament and put to death all those that were wrong! may bee a little drastic, but it sure would thin the heard .

Yup. So true. I remember those talk shows that air in the television about these psychic predictions yada-yada. Hay naku, they are just capitalizing on the Forer Effect.

Yes, I always anticipate year forecasts in Sunday talk shows because most of them came to be true. True , because, err, they are sweeping and so generalized, any of which can be true.

Except the celebrities portion. They were just, nah, want the audience to titillate.

AT least, it's not MADAME AURING.

Hahaha.

As long as people listening and surprisingly these yakkers have followers and believer, they will be on the airwaves, magazines, talk shows and even internet. I rather spend my time watching "Animation" movies instead on my P.C. and keep on eye on the Weather Station to make sure I'm always prepared while on the road. Other than that, I'll call the Bibs and make up some stories myself and she never believes them anyways.

Hahaha! Palagay ko me basihan naman yung tunay na craft nito. Kaso kasi masyadong general ang mga predictions nila at ma showbiz kaya mukhang malabong paniwalaan. Happy new year Jef. Ayos ba bagong trabaho?
