20 Bad Predictions That Aged Like Milk

None of us can accurately predict the future. It's just a fact of life. No matter how much everyone wants a little predictability in the future, especially when it comes to things like finance, nothing ever goes as exactly planned. In fact, many predictions people make about various things can turn out to be dramatically wrong, often to the point where they're hilarious.

The following images contain predictions that didn't exactly age like a fine wine. Instead, they aged like milk. Some are downright embarrassing, and others were something lots of people believed as well, but all of them have now turned out to be pretty far from the truth, and the irony they've created is truly entertaining. Here are some of our favorite times someone made a very bad guess at what the future may hold, and the results were pretty funny now that we know better.

When you say something like this, you're just asking for it.

Classic Elon

Elon Musk @elonmusk The reality is that this guy (who is independently wealthy) did no actual work, claimed as his excuse that he had a disability that prevented him from typing, yet was simultaneously tweeting up a storm. Can't say I have a lot of respect for that. 2:47 AM-3/7/23-45.8M Views Elon Musk @elonmusk *** I would like to apologize to Halli for my misunderstanding of his situation. It was based on things I was told that were untrue or, in some cases, true, but not meaningful. He is considering remaining at Twitter. 6:51 PM -3/7/23-200K Views 173 Retweets 611 Quotes 1,641 Likes

A lot of things Elon Musk has done lately really haven't held up well.

That's a Bummer

When he was 26 years old, Pete Maravich said "I don't want to play 10 years in the NBA and die of a heart attack at age 40" in an interview. He went on to play 10 years in the NBA, and died of a heart attack at age 40. AZZ 7

Looks like his one fear came true.

Unclear

NEWS ANALYSIS Critics Say Musk Has Revealed Himself as a Conservative. It's Not So Simple. Elon Musk has tweeted about political topics regularly since taking over Twitter, often belittling some liberal causes. But what he stands for remains largely unclear.
