Weekend Video Post – Octopus Oracle
Germany’s Octopus oracle Paul is predicting Spain will beat Netherlands in Sunday’s epic FIFA World Cup 2010 Final on July 11 by choosing a winning mussel from two jars in his tank. The mollusc also predicted Germany would beat Uruguay in the consolation contest for the 3rd spot, and that has come true.
This World Cup, whatever forecasts were predicted by ‘Paul Octopus’, has proved right. This is the first time he has predicted in a game not involving Germany, so it would be interesting to see whether his psychic powers go beyond games involving Germany.
Spain who are the favorites, displayed thier best performance 60 years back in 1950, when they reached the quarter-finals.
