Ok something I heard one person say is that maybe homosexuality is the Human Race's response to over-population in the world in an attempt to stop numbers increasing so highly.

But it occurs with many different animals, not just humans.

The Greeks and Spartans were very fond of homosexuality. And it worked, they had a huge empire. Until the Romans came.

Real Madrid wins the Champions League.
Man U takes the Premier League.
Inter wins Serie A.
Stuttgart wins the Bundesliga.
Valencia wins La Liga.

Euro 2004: I dont know, but if Holland gets everything right they might win it. France is a safer bet though. Henrik Larsson wont play in it and Real Sociedad signs him after the season. Kim Källström will be one of the younger stars in the Euro 2004 and Parma buys him after.

World Cup qualifier: We will begin with losing the two first games and the new coach partnership will be slaughtered in all medias.

Abramovitj buys Ronaldo from Real to Chelsea after the season since Ronaldo is tired of being in the shadow of Raul. Then he opens his wallet and gets Rivaldo as well.

The NHL lockout will start and will last for the whole 2004/05 season.

Nintendo shows movie from Mario 128 at E3?
PES 4 will go online and EA will start to feel really uneasy about the situation since FIFA 2005 will suck.

Bush wins a narrow election cause he caught Saddam and threatens Iran and Syria.

Indeed, the Spartans trained entire regiments made up of homosexual couples, and because of the devotion each indivdual felt towards their partner, they were some of Sparta's finest warriors.

Zone of the Enders: The Second Runner will be my new favorite game ever by then. Hopefully.

MGS3 will be out and will be amazing. Hopefully.

How did you do?
Did your predictions come true?
Do you think they will come true by next week

(Save 2005 predictions for another thread, this is just for commenting on the ones we made last year.)

I did miserable..

Quote:
Real Madrid wins the Champions League.
Porto won, Real went out in the quarterfinals.


Quote:
Man U takes the Premier League.
Arsenal won.


Quote:
Inter wins Serie A.
For Inter it went as usual, Milan won.


Quote:
Stuttgart wins the Bundesliga.
Stuttgart didn't win.


Quote:
Valencia wins La Liga.
Haha! I was right!


Quote:
Euro 2004: I dont know, but if Holland gets everything right they might win it. France is a safer bet though.
Greece?


Quote:
Henrik Larsson wont play in it
lol, he changed his mind and scored 3 goals


Quote:
and Real Sociedad signs him after the season.
Barcelona signed him!


Quote:
Kim Källström will be one of the younger stars in the Euro 2004 and Parma buys him after.
Not really, he was one of the worst Swedish players, and Parma would never afforded buying anything after their owner got jailed.


Quote:
World Cup qualifier: We will begin with losing the two first games and the new coach partnership will be slaughtered in all medias.
We lost against Croatia, but we beat Iceland and Hungary. And no one has been slaughtered in the media yet.


Quote:
Abramovitj buys Ronaldo from Real to Chelsea after the season since Ronaldo is tired of being in the shadow of Raul. Then he opens his wallet and gets Rivaldo as well.
He bought Mateja Kezman instead. And Rivaldo? Haha!


Quote:
The NHL lockout will start and will last for the whole 2004/05 season.
Finally! I was right again! There will be no games played in the NHL this year, and instead the stars are in our European leagues.


Quote:
Nintendo shows movie from Mario 128 at E3?
No, but now we know that Mario 128 will be released for this generation's console!


Quote:
PES 4 will go online and EA will start to feel really uneasy about the situation since FIFA 2005 will suck.
PES4 got online on X-Box Live! and also on PC. PES4 beat FIFA 2005 narrowly in the battle, but still FIFA is winning with its license.



Quote:

He won because of christian conservatives.

Well, much more slowly then I thought, my university has two, not very mass market yet.
Still, look in most computer magazine/adverts and they normaly have at least one sharp/paralax barrier 3D screen for sale.

If Beagle2 survived we would know by now, but Nasa's rovers arnt capable of detecting life so we dont know.

Again, like the moniters, slower effect then I hoped.
Still, Skype offers calls to any land line in the world for 1p per minute.
Its just a mater of it becomeing a bit more public

I was probably wrong on the tenfold figure, but two major US citys are planning Wi-Fi coverage for the whole city.
