* A virtually unknown politician, a black man who's father is from Africa, will be elected president, in a landslide. He'll take the office from George W. Bush, leaving with the lowest approval rating of any president in history.
* Fidel Castro will step down.
* People with AIDS will be living longer than ever before, but the disease won't be cured.
* Americans will watch more video online than on TV.
* An earthquake in Myanmar will kill more than 100,000 people and their government will do nothing.


"Punchline: if we really care about the investigation and the analysis, we'll pay for it one way or another. Maybe it's a public good, a non profit function.
