Review site TripAdvisor may have frantically backpedaled after a Milwaukee Sentinel-Journal expose showed that it had a habit of censoring reviews mentioning blackouts, rape, and suspicious deaths or injuries incurred at certain resorts - specifically Mexican ones, though it remains unclear if other destinations were involved - by adding new functionality warning of potentially dangerous hotels. But the site's belated admission it did wrong might not be enough for the US Federal Trade Commission, which the Sentinel reported this week is potentially investigating whether Tripadvisor acted improperly.

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.
