Jolly Thirteen Predictions for 2017 and Review of 2016


2016 was, shall we say, a difficult to year to predict. Despite that, some members of the Jolly Thirteen Club had some tragically dead on predictions and humorous misses.

As per our annual tradition, the Jolly Thirtreen Club met at One Mile House on the 13th of January to reveal the results of last year's predictions and make entirely new predictions for 2017. Will we finally prove ourselves to have psychic powers of precognition? Probably not, but we'll still have fun!

Click below to read the predictions for 2017 and see how we did in 2016.

Public Lecture: Lynne Kelly -- A Skeptic Tackles Stonehenge

When: Saturday, Februrary 11, 2017 @ 3:00 PM 
Where: Jefferson Market Library (425 Ave of the Americas at 10th Street)

There are more crazy idea about Stonehenge than any other place in the world. So what happens when a hardcore skeptic claims to have solved one of the world’s greatest mysteries? And then gets even wilder by claiming that the same thinking also explains Easter Island, the Nazca Lines and lots of other mysterious sites around the world? It’s all to do with the extraordinary methods that non-literate cultures use to memorize the vast amount of rational information on which their survival depends.

Dr. Lynne Kelly is a founding member of the Australian Skeptics. With degrees in Engineering, IT, Education, and a doctorate in Arts, she has published 16 books including The Skeptic's Guide to the Paranormal and  two books based on her PhD research, Knowledge and Power in Prehistoric Societies (Cambridge University Press) and The Memory Code.
