I can be as accurate as these so called experts. I'll use the following analogy. I go to the horse track and after examining the horses records and odds, I pick the win, place and show horses. At one quarter turn, I revise my choices. At half way, I again revise my choices. At 3/4 of the way I revise again. I bet I will be just as accurate in my horse race picks as they are in their hurricane picks.

yeah... can we just ignore these so called experts and their predictions?? I'm sure there is a 105 year old tribal woman that can give better predictions using tea leaves.

And if anyone has seen those "Top 10 jobs for ..." articles, how about the "Top 10 jobs for guessers"

1. Doctors: sure you go to 8 years of school, but all you really do is guess at what's wrong and hope you're right.

2. Meteorologist: You're more likely to control weather than you are to predict it.

anyone else want to contribute to my list?
