I used to predict the future, as a kid. I knew the Space Shuttle would explode, that the Berlin Wall would crumble, that Ronald Reagan would go on the thousand-dollar bill, shortly before the US switched to the North American dollar standard in a last-ditch effort to derail the career of Carlos Mencia. I always thought Crystal Pepsi would be a huge hit, so this didn’t always work.
That’s from my flash fiction story “The Chainsaw Baron Prophecy,” which is from my book The Earworm Inception. If you haven’t checked out my book yet, you can read the story for free over at Fictionaut. Check it out here:
