Video: It takes The Slow Mo Guys a few attempts and false starts to hit the burning wick of a candle with an air gun.

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.
