Police departments across the US are warning Facebook users that a child abuse video captioned with a vague plea to identify the perpetrator is spreading across the site via direct messages and status updates - and that sharing this nightmare chain letter or even viewing its contents is, obviously, a crime that could result in serious penalties up to and including felony charges.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
