Hi, This is Wayne. This is my site, my stuff, my blog, blahblahblah. The site itself is powered by WordPress and the Scary Little theme. I thought it was cool, and I still do.

I was reading a Scott Adams blog entry recently and he mentioned Predictify.  I hadn’t heard of it, so I clicked and browsed about a little, signed up, did some predictions, etc.

And now just a few days later, I actually got an email saying I “won” 10 cents as part of one of my predictions.  So far, I’ve only gotten one prediction right and the others were off:

Now, I’m totally unsuprised at getting sports stuff wrong.  I don’t feel bad.  For example, the Peyton Manning touchdowns, I guessed 2 and the right answer was 3.  No biggie.  I’m surprised I was within 50 of the right answer.  I *am* surprised at getting the Yankees Manager correct, because I just guessed.  As far as I know, the guy I chose was thrown in there as bait for bad guessers, and maybe he was dead or something.

I’ve put in some more predictions and will continue – in fact, I feel confident to predict that I will be using predictify on a regular basis.  I don’t think I’ll be able to make a living at it, at least not until people start paying for predictions on things I actually *know* but it’s fun in the meantime.

In the meantime, I can take that dime and apply it towards Jaden’s college fund.  And doing as many guesses for the “paid” predictions as I can.


Want to comment?

Hey, we all want to share our voice. And I particularly love comments, especially if you took the time to read my blog entry. I'll take the time to read your comment, I swear! But due to spammers, robots, and the fact that I want my blog to be PG rated, I need to approve the comments. This should be same day, but please don't get mad if it takes me a while to approve the comment.
