    Poor Burt. He didn’t look so good there at the end.

    Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

    And how long DID Burt and Loni last? Or Burt and Sally? Or Burt and Dinah…?

    One could only hope (against hope) that Jeane’s weather predictions would continue to work over the years. But history tells us otherwise.

    iirc Burt and ‘Anybody’ was an easy prediction.

    I guess the Farmer’s Almanac fell out of favor with her.

    Even a digital is correct, unless it’s a 24 hour clock.

    The trick to “psychic” and “astrological” predictions: Every year, throw out a hundred of them. 90 are things that are vague and almost bound to happen anyway, and 10 are imaginative but improbable. Then ignore the misses and trumpet the hits. If one of the “out there” ones should happen to come true by sheer coincidence, buy billboards and TV spots about it.

    Hint: If you run across ads for “this guy who predicted Trump would win in 2016”, it’s the same scam.

    Mom may have been on to something. Remember, this was the Great Flood of ’93. https://news.stlpublicradio.org/post/calculating-disaster-scientists-who-predicted-great-flood-93#stream/0

    Ma, if you planted rice in an unflooded field, how did it survive?

    Safe Prediction. There is Always a very heavy rain Somewhere.

    You can also predict a bad Drought with almost perfect certainty. Somewhere Else.
