Carr Does It Again - twice on the same day
For the past eight months I have been saving Anthony Carr's column in the Calgary Sun, intending at some point to go back through them and see if he had made any more major errors (See Meditation 72). In an idle moment this week, I started checking backwards and it did not take me long.
On 14 May, 2006, Carr forecast about Paul McCartney and Heather Mills:
The pair go into counselling, kiss and make up.
Unfortunately for Carr, the pair chose instead to separate a mere three days later.
Also on 14 May, Carr made a prediction about the relationship between Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban:
Nicole and Keith would have faced a troubled future if they had wed - but marriage to each other is not in the cards.
They were nice enough to wait six weeks before proving Carr wrong.
Perhaps I should leave Carr alone. It's just too easy to find faults with his predictions. But, for those interested in tracking another of his mystic forecasts, here's one from today's (2 July 2006) Calgary Sun on Paris Hilton:
Look for Paris to get pregnant early next year - but she won't marry the daddy.
Using absolutely none of my psychic powers, I predict he's going to be wrong on this one too. For the purpose testing of the prediction, we'll consider "early next year" as between 1 January 2007 and 30 June 2007. That gives him lots of leeway.
