101 predictions for 2012

101 Uses For is popular and let's hope it stays that way. Our second book is presently called 101 tips for self sufficiency; we will certainly dip into this section for ideas. So post away and let's try and get at least one thread up to 101.

Heh...well if that calendar is to be believed (Mayan or Aztec? I forget) then the end it will be! However, the cyclic nature of reality seems to imply that it will just be yet another new beginning.

Also, 3) my 19th birthday.. Actually, it'll be my fourteenth 19th birthday, or thereabouts!

7. A small but determined army of ishers takes over the UK and establishes a benign dictatorship, immediately outlawing plug-in air-fresheners, instituting policies of compulsory home composting, tomato growing and homebrewing and offering tax-breaks for creative reuse of packaging materials.

I thought it was on December 21st 2012. The Mayans and the Hopi tribes people have both predicted it.

I quite like that idea Hamster, would hope that could happen before 2012 though!

8. Shortly after the ISH coup, there are signs of internal strife between the ISH-or-die and the ISH-with-a-shrug factions.

9. The new government splits, one party demanding development of tomatoes and the other aubergines.

10. After a short but intensive development programme, the neutron tomato (green model) is perfected. Government quote "This awesome weapon will never be used on a first-strike basis".

11. In a panicked pre-emptive action, the world's first intercontinental aubergine is launched in Sydney, aimed at Bristol. Luckily, the newly-formed Green Airish Force shoot it down over the Bay of Biscay.

12. Calm is restored and work begins on the tomato/aubergine hybrid. A vegetable saves the world yet again!!!!
