2017 Prognostications and Predictions
Everybody Will See You Naked.
If you have ever been nude in a locker room with a bunch of naked people in the modern era then someone has filmed you naked. Whether it was one of your teammates documenting a leaky pipe or some unscrupulous pervert or coach trying to get off or get over.
Also, any house or apartment you move into could have cameras so tiny embedded in the bathroom or bedroom ceilings that you would never notice. By the way, not everything that looks like a smoke detector is one.
Every dressing room you ever enter could have a tiny camera secreted somewhere.
And don’t get me started with the Government Gropers at the Federal Fondling Station. Or the Federal Fondlers and the Government Groping Station. AKA TSA at your friendly neighborhood airport. Those folks not only have more ways to look under your clothes than you could shake a stick at but if they are not satisfied with the pictures, they are not shy about putting their hands down your pants. And if even that doesn’t satiate them they are government empowered to force you to take your clothes off.
Oh and by the way the NSA amongst other government agencies has a copy of every nude selfie you have ever taken. Even if you didn't send it. Did you know that some electronic devices have back doors embedded in them that could activate without your consent or knowledge?
And did you know that the government as well as some hackers have probably sneaked a peek through your laptop camera without your knowledge or permission?
By the way, I would bet that even your doctors office may have been bugged by some unscrupulous person with tiny cameras
Any outdoor toilet or porta-potties could have a camera in it,
What does all this mean? This means that naked pictures of almost everyone in a western society are probably floating around the Internet. The good news is that if you are the average person, most people most of the time don’t care what you look like naked. Generally speaking, the pervs scanning the pictures, and this includes official government pervs, have a prurient interest only in the outliers. Mostly they are only interested in the differently endowed folks. Unless that’s you, most people don’t spend much time looking at you naked.
This does not make it okay. But if you think about it carefully, it does make it inevitable. Nothing can permanently fix this situation and give us back our privacy but sooner or later someone will invent camera jammers and scan proof clothing that will probably sell well for those who want the illusion of privacy returned to them. I say illusion because the very next day these devices come out, someone will invent technology to defeat them.
I don’t see any way in a free society to put this genie back in the bottle. Everyone has a camera on his phone. Everyone can buy even more and even tinier cameras and place them anywhere. Given how much of our legitimate society runs off some kind of technology and remote sensing, any effective camera blocker may jam your phone or computer as well.
Nations Will Pick Their Favorite Dictator and Crush ISIS
One quarter of ISIS dies of a radical new kind of tetanus when someone drops 10000 rubber dolls packed full of rusty razor blades on them.
Another quarter will succumb to the booby trapped male goats that will be placed in their path.
As some pundits have pointed out, even if ISIS (Daesh) is defeated, another radical religious organization will rise in their place.
Most nations, noting that the only viable options in the Middle East are religious fanatics or dictators will take dictators. The United States and the West will take some relatively benevolent dictators. Russia and China will each back dictators that are a bit more ruthless. Terrorism will not come to an end but it will become a much rarer and more manageable phenomenon.
It began when 90% of America’s colleges and universities outlawed the words “hell” and “damn” from their campuses. Then when students started being expelled for saying things like “hello” or “the dam construction has begun”, many alumni stopped contributing to colleges and universities and most of the parents pulled their children out. In the course of a year, 70 percent of institutions of higher learning financially collapsed. Those that remained had a physical student body composed strictly of foreign students who were not fluent enough in English to have speech codes applied to them. All the American students attending these institutions did so only online and only via electronic methods that did not require any spoken language whatsoever. The utter lack of laboratory work by American students under these circumstances meant that America fell to the bottom of the heap in scientific advances and Nobel prizes. Eventually, any American scholar or researcher who wanted to do laboratory research had to attend third world institutions. No European educational institution would take American students because they where known to be ignorant and proud of it as well as well as loud, abusive, and far too easy to take offense. At the third world institutions the Americans were simply beaten into submission whenever they complained about anything so they stopped complaining and did their work and thereby received excellent educations. Unfortunately no fortune five hundred company would hire any American graduate so the American college graduates hired Europeans to teach them how to speak with a accent. So it turned out that the only way any American fresh out of college could get a job anywhere was to lie on his resume. If he became English, Canadian, French, German, Greek, or Italian, only then could he get a job.
A North Korea dictator will force his scientists to genetically modify horses. The modified horses will have a single horn growing out of their foreheads. And thus, unicorns will be born. Then the dictator will steal skin and hair cells from all of the world’s most beautiful women. He will subsequently force his scientists to use these cells to clone the women and to make them zombies who live only to carry out the will of the Dear Leader. Then the Son of Heaven will send an army of naked zombie clones riding unicorns south to attack and eventually defeat the South Koreans.
