Prophetic Predictions

At the start of the semester, I asked the students in my Prophets and Prophecy course to predict a future event. Whoever had the most specific prediction that came to pass would get some extra points on the final exam. Most were vague and way off, but one was quite funny. It read as follows:

I predict that Norman C. Francis will retire as president of Xavier University. Minnesota vikings will win the Super Bowl. They’ll find a cure for Walt Disney’s disease which caused him to be cryogenically frozen, they will thaw him out and he will still be alive. A shuttle will crash. Dr Homan will go nuts and give 95% of the class an “A”, or Dr Homan will NOT search for his name on the web.
