Definitely Wrong

One thing I've always noticed about astrologers and other people who claim to predict the future (including stock market analysts) is that they never stick their necks out and say anything concrete which can be of any use.

So when Orkut tells me that "You are next in line for promotion in your firm", I feel happy that finally somebody/some software has made unambiguous prediction for my future. Which brings me to the point of why you don't find so many straightforward predictions : the chances of it going wrong are greater, like the prediction above which is a candidate for the joke of the day in my office.
