President-elect Donald Trump yesterday named Gen. James Mattis, who also sits on the board of directors at failed biomedical startup Theranos, as his pick for defence secretary. Now the The Washington Post has emails that show General Mattis pushing for Theranos to receive a deal for a military field test from 2012 to 2013, despite the fact that Theranos' devices were far from being FDA approved. Before the company unravelled, it was pushing a vision of breakthrough, low cost medical tools that could analyse blood and do complex analysis quickly and efficiently.

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.
