During the sixteenth century, a French apothecary named Nostradamus scripted cataclysmic predictions for planet Earth such as: the Balkan Wars, World War III, and the release of the iPhone. Unfortunately, Nostradamus’ vague quatrains require intense hindsight and lack the ability to predict the future. As a result, Nostradamus’ literature can be found in the Fiction aisle of the public library.
Nostradamus’ work is a stark contrast to the blog entries of Fahradamus: a strapping, young, Fisher MBA student. In recent blog posts, Fahradamus accurately predicted a curse on the MBA basketball team. The day after the entry was posted; I took an elbow to the cheek while playing basketball which resulted in a humiliating black eye. Perhaps you are thinking that one accurate prediction is just luck. If this is the case, keep reading.
Last week, Fahradamus posted a blog that stated he was planning to play softball for the Fisher MBA intramural team. In this entry he stated, “Although softball might seem relatively safe, I am quite sure that one of my classmates (probably me) will either get a black-eye or sustain some other serious injury while attempting to relive our glory days.” What happened next is probably obvious… In my very first softball game, I sustained a black-eye and required eight stitches above my eyebrow to stop the bleeding after I collided with a guy on the base path. Go figure.
Going forward, Fahradamus will only predict straight-A’s, high paying job offers, and success in safe recreational sports such as golf.
