1. There will be sad a loss to the Royal Family
 - Not a surprise. The royals lose more and more dignity every year.
2. But there will also be a happy addition
 - A baby? A marriage? Vague predictions are vague.
3. A major entertainment mogul will retire
 - Yawn
4. England will be knocked out of the World Cup in the early stages
 - Not a follower of soccer, but when was the last time England was known for athletics on the world stage?
5. Politics in the Middle East will continue to raise concern
 - You don't say!
6. One political party leader will be dogged by turmoil and not recover.
 - Yawn
7. A storm this month will bring more misery to Britain
 - Britain, miserable due to weather? Quelle surprise!
8. The weather in the Far East will deteriorate as the year progresses.
 - Seasonal monsoons? Such a thing is unheard of!
9. A musical supergroup will split.
 - Are there even any supergroups around right now?
10. There will be a string of celebrity divorces.
  - This can't be true. Everyone knows celebrities are the happiest and most stable of all people in their lives and relationships.

You know, if you're going to make predictions, at least be creative. I think the woman is smoking her asparagus.

You're probably familiar with the phrase "cargo cult science." Named after WWII-era Pacific islanders whose islands were used by the Allies, and who then tried to summon the Allies (and all the good technology they brought) back post war by wearing coconuts on their heads like audio headphones and wiggling sticks around at pretend landing pads, it denotes a methodology with a superficial resemblance to science, that's really just a load or horseshiat. Think astrology, homeopathy, crystal healing, lie detectors, Feng Shui, Freud, trickle-down economics, etc.

I think we just discovered the equivalent for pseudoscience. This is crap that can't even be bothered to have the thin veneer of marginal plausibility of other augury methods. It's  cargo cult pseudoscience. Astrologers at least have silly symbols and a charting ritual. This nitwit is just chucking asparagus stalks at a sheet and nattering platitudes.
