Worth keeping in mind

Predictions are hard and sometimes the completely unexpected happens:

You Know, If You Had Told Me a Year Ago That on August 5, 2011 S&P Would Downgrade the U.S, and the 10-Yr Treasury Would Yield 2.5%... I would have laughed at you. I would have said that while there were possible futures in which each of those things happened, they were disjoint futures.

It is humbling to recall just how different events can be from our best possible projections.
