I enjoy doing the research each morning. Every day is different, obviously. For iconic, it's hard to beat Robert Engund as Freddy Kruger and I'd say Paul Giamatti is the actor best known when not in make-up. As often happens, I run across the names of actors I didn't know were dead, and that was the case with all three, Cheryl Smith, David Dukes and Richard Paul. If I was just being a Whedonverse nerd, I might give the Picture Slot to Danny Strong, but following the Game of Thrones is trump rule while the show airs, we get Ellie Kendrick as Meera Reed, one of Bran Stark's protectors.
Best wishes to the living on the list and to the dead, thanks for all the memories.
Prediction: "...in ten years all important animal life in the sea will be extinct. Large areas of coastline will have to be evacuated because of the stench of dead fish."
Reality: It's amazing this guy was taken seriously back in the day and even now, organizations are giving him honors. He gets one last prediction next week, and it stinks as bad as the rest.
Looking one day ahead... INTO THE FUTURE!
Back to 1893 and one of the few female predictors.
