The way to make predictions

Found it on the web.

Indian weathermen prediction:

"There is 50% chance that this region or some other region in this country may or may not see some rain today".

That's pretty profound.

Many years ago the editorial cartoonist Benson (Arizona Republic) had a cartoon that featured the (then four) major stations including affiliates with their various forecasts, all with differing opinions as to the percentage chance of rain.

Benson's comment, across the bottom, was along the lines of "and there's a 50% chance they're wrong".

I always think of that when one of these yahoos starts spewing their regurgitation of what they read off the wire.

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. (Winston Churchill)
