Question 1

Poor Africa, you will suffer and your countries will suffer. Lines drawn by others shall be erased, but the new lines created will be in blood. No ocean touches those countries destroyed, but new oceans will be created with the blood of those new lines.

Question 2

Gabrielle and Noel will be severe, no doubt. Zealots will claim biblical prophecy due to their vengence. But Olga will not pass by without taking its full share of the people's economy and Ingrid will prove to have been the strongest.
Cape Fear will face its own name.

Question 3

Between the Sulu and celebes Seas I say to you pray while the Earth brings you to your knees. But the real fear belongs to Greek's old city of Byzantium, the New Rome. Istanbul cannot run from an old god's vengence, your buried roads and centers shall rise again while your new ones fall to the ground. As for the old Rome, you will see Pliny the Younger's words replayed, Pompeii and Herculaneum will become your fate.
But at 9.2 Palau and the Ocean will shake. Yours will be the strongest, though not as deadly as the old and new Rome's 7.1 and 8.3.

Question 4

God's new prophet Walsch will see why his last book and conversation had the subject it did.
The Empire's son and second Prince will remain his age in 2007 for ever. Harry, be ready for your mum, for she will be the first to greet you while your dad and brother say goodbye.
Castro will be no longer, but not the one you think.
Such a short reign for you, the successor of Peter and John Paul. But will we see the smoke and hear the bells toll?
Hawking, you brave soul. In the next world you shall walk and talk on your own. Your name will be remembered like Einstein and Newton, and with them you shall live forever in the stars.

Question 5

Vesuvius will not be the only cause for blood for the old Rome.
And the forgotten god's of Greece shall not be the only ones to shake the old and buried streets and centers of the new Rome.
No, Italy and Turkey will suffer many things from the hands of man and the shaking of the earth.
Will the bells toll?
But new weapons deadlier and not as loud will be our shock and awe. They were warned, but were the people?
And again in Egypt and Jordan people cry. Though other cries from across the water will be loudest of them all.
Will the bells toll?

Question 6

Harry Potter and the young Hannibal will fight for the Honor. But the Pirates will take what isn't theirs!

Question 7

The worst has just begun. 82.02 or 80.40 will be the price, but the real cost will become clear once the blood disappears. Will the old and new Rome and the forgotten gods of Greece ever let go?
Will the bells toll?

Question 8

The optimistic questioners will see how those who assume pay the most. They will see the real question should have been the reverse.
They will ask, "Will the bells toll?"

Question 9

They will see more, those of the full circle will see more.

Question 10

This will be the year the world will see just how desperate the leader of the North is. Above the famed 38th parallel he will start. Below it he will not finish.
In the Pacific old land will be swallowed up as new land rises above the waves. Though this is not uncommon, everyone will know about it.
As the world makes ground-breaking discoveries and advances in physics(as related to the Universe)and medicine this year, it will not be as talked about as it would be any other year due to the sons and daughters of Aeneas crying out for help.
Darwin would cry a million tears if he could see what is done to his islands. Though not as many as the people who live on the top of the world. Shame on the people who destroy the earth ...
Three times people will sit in wait and ask, "Will the bells toll?"
This is the only link between them. Only time can tell of its meaning.

This is way too fuzzy. The most deadly and most damaging attacks will not be the same, but they'll both be in Iraq.

Question 1,
Which countries will be officially renamed, which countries will break up into smaller countries and if you are really psychic what new names will they have.


Turkmenistan will be renamed Niyazovstan and/or Niyazovia. But this name will only last a few months. Myanmar will return to being called Burma.

Iraq will split up, becoming in the north, Kurdistan, in the center, Iraq, and in the south, either the Iraq or Basrah Province of Iran. (The Iranians are still arguing over what to call it.)

Question 2,
Which Atlantic* Hurricanes will,{A} Be the strongest (reach the lowest pressure in millibars) and {B} cause the most damage in cost to North America/Hawaii/Caribbean. Hurricanes from the 2006 or 2007 season which happen in January are excluded.
Andrea, Barry, Chantal, Dean, Erin, Felix, Gabrielle, Humberto, Ingrid, Jerry, Karen, Lorenzo, Melissa, Noel, Olga, Pablo, Rebekah, Sebastien, Tanya, Van, Wendy, Alpha, Beta…


Felix is the only one to watch, and the answer to both questions. He's eyeing Miami. He'll be class five, worst of an overall moderate season, and he'll utterly devastate that city, hitting it, going back to sea, then hitting it twice more.

Question 3,
Determine the surface location of the strongest earthquake of the year (Richter) within 500KM, use place names or coordinates.


Wuhan, China.

Question 4,
List at least 5 famous people who will die in 2007, bonuses for people who are not already on their deathbed (Such as the leader of Hezbollah, Sheik Nazrallah) Murdering of your listees will result in removal from the contest.


Lady Bird Johnson
Kirk Douglas
Billy Graham
Charlton Heston
Tony Curtis
Tom Cruise

Question 5,
Describe the worst terrorist attacks of 2007, thwarted attacks do not count. Nor 'Terror' attacks by military forces such as Israel/Hezbollah.
{A} Most Deaths
{B} Most Damage, cost
{C} Location and Targets


Natural gas tanker blown up in Singapore, with the most deaths, damage, and costs. 15 major terrorist attacks will be thwarted, but only the partially foiled attempt to topple the huge Christ the Redeemer (Cristo Redentor) statue in Rio will be public knowledge, due to its location and extensive superficial damage.

Question 6,
Name the highest Grossing Film released in 2007 for worldwide box office numbers as reported by www.Boxofficemojo.com Here is a list of scheduled movies for 2007
http://www.movieweb.com/movies/releases/year.php?2007


No contest: Spider-man 3.

Question 7,
The price of a barrel of oil in NYC on the morning of JAN 1, 2008.(WTI price)

Question 9,
Which Video Game System will have the largest worldwide hardware sales numbers for the year of 2007? Xbox360, PS3, PS2, PSP, NintendoDS, Nintendo Wii.


Xbox 360.

Question 10,
Show us your psychic skills and predict something which nobody would expect. Judges will determine the difficulty of your predictions and worthiness of your answers. 0-5 points possible.


The first extrasolar terrestrial planet with detected oxygen (and likely life) is discovered, though controversies surrounding the discovery will remain for some months.

An obscure Finnish company will demonstrate a working prototype secondary (rechargeable) electric battery based upon a practical aluminum-air chemistry. This battery will promise and eventually deliver, a light, environmentally safe, high-capacity, and inexpensive accumulator that will rapidly spell the end of the internal combustion engine in most applications.


Biology is just physics that has begun to smell bad.” —HalfMooner

I've decided not to enter. I will be content to be a judge.

Therefor, I predict that I will not win.

Uncertainty may make you uncomfortable. Certainty makes you ridiculous.
