Hi it’s Bradley from EWS Lab_13!!!

It took about 2-3 hours to think up and write all of these events and I had help from some friends from Lab_13, (Ben, Josh, Ross, Siani and Miss Tyler) who supplied a lot of good ideas for the list.

Thank you for reading this post and and extra special thank you if you read through the whole list.

    Wow! what a list! Thanks Bradley, made for some very interesting reading (some interesting, some slightly depressing, some uplifting predictions!). I can’t believe you managed to put that together in just a few hours!

    Thanks for adding this. It would be great to see other Lab_13 predictions!
