(As I'm typing this, I realise how patient my neighbours must have been to listen to a tiny shrieking football at all hours of the day. Thanks Karen and Paul!)

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.
