.. THE ANNUAL PREDICTION THREAD Hey, it's time for a yearly tradition, the annual what-the-hell is going to happen to the freaky cult of Scientology in 2017. There have been many wonderful and uncannily accurate prognostications in previous years--some brilliant, prescient or hilarious. As always, here's da rules: For fun, here are the threads for the past years. I couldn't find the 2012 Predictions thread (whoa, nobody predicted that would happen). 2011 PREDICTIONS 2012 PREDICTIONS 2013 PREDICTIONS 2014 PREDICTIONS 2015 PREDICTIONS 2016 PREDICTIONS So, use all your hard won and certified supernatural psychic powers! SPECIAL RULE CHANGE FOR 2017: If you make a bogus prediction about a Scientology event that never happens in the MEST universe in 2017, you still get to keep your OT status and impressive advanced certificates---provided that: a) You still feel good about the prediction. b) Your prediction is real to you, because you consider it did happen in your universe on the first dynamic. c) Planetary clearing (of Hubbard's hoax) becomes a reality on this planet.
