Will Bradley Manning be found guilty of aiding the enemy?
OMG Seriously??!

Bradley Manning, the Army private sentenced to 35 years in military prison for leaking classified documents, revealed Thursday he intends to live out the remainder of his life as a woman.

"I am Chelsea Manning. I am a female," the Army private wrote in a statement read by his attorney Thursday on NBC's Today show. "Given the way that I feel, and have felt since childhood, I want to begin hormone therapy as soon as possible. I hope that you will support me in this transition."

Will the ‘fiscal cliff’ be avoided?
Granted a lot of the Bush-era and Obama tax cuts were not intended to be permanent, it didn't have to be a fricken cliff. The Budget Control Act of 2011 which set this all up was also written in desperation over the debt ceiling. It wasn't even a realistic solution. All said and done here, nothing was solved. Just another temporary solution while they pat each other on the back and continue digging themselves deeper. Surely someone can come up with a longer term plan to recover instead of more short term solutions at critical moments. We need real change and less hope and I don't see how it can possibly happen between these two parties.

'Star Wars' sequel: Will Harrison Ford bring Han Solo back to life?
Some past statements from George Lucas:

- Episode VII would begin roughly 20 (or perhaps 30 or 40) years after the end of Return of the Jedi (according to Lucas in 1980 and 1982).

- R2-D2 and C-3PO would be the only characters who might continue through all nine films (Lucas in 1980, 1981 and 1983).

- The key actors, Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, Harrison Ford as Han Solo and Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia, would appear, in their 60s or 70s (Lucas in 1983).

Of course he's also quoted as saying there would never be a 6,7 & 8. "This is it." he said during an interview in1999. But even with Disney at the wheel, I just can't see them ignoring some of the key characters from the previous episode.

Since the last Triple Crown winner in 1978, an upset occurred in 2008, 2004, 2003, 2002, 1999, 1998, 1997, 1989, 1987, 1981, 1979.

So the story continues to develop... It was her son who threw her under the bus after HE got busted with pot he stole from her. After admitting to setting her up as a seller about five years ago, he also admitted to a methamphetamine habit that caused Mayes to cut him out of the partnership shortly before the bust. Bet she's proud of him now.

   Super Usergotmick

Will the DUI charge against Dennis Jones still be against him after April 25th?
Yeah, this one is definitely going to be interesting. While Florida law clearly states "physical control of a vehicle within this state", the fact he wasn't on any kind of road or parking lot is a pretty good point. Can't say I'm too surprised they took him in though. It's amazing a guy who's drunk as a skunk, missing a lens in his eyeglasses, slurring his words and driving into trees managed to stay inside his property line until the police got there. But the bottom line is he caused no damage to anyone else and he could have done the same thing on a lawnmower. This case is going to be under a microscope. Great question Buckeye.

The mainstream media was brutal over this. But the bottom line, is they can't stream more than they already do because of greedy studios and exclusive contracts.

And watch, as soon as the dust settles, Blockbuster will raise their prices too. But only because they can. I'm not very happy about two websites and two bills though. That sucks.

What will happen to Happy Feet, New Zealand's wayward penguin?
He's been cleared to head home, but likely won't be released for a few weeks:
http://newsfeed.time.com/2011/07/29/lost-penguin-happy-feet-to-return-to-the-wild/

Funny thing is after all this trouble, he still has to swim for thousands of miles by himself to get home. Not so sure this is the happy ending everybody is so thrilled about! They will be tracking him by satellite so I don't think we've heard the end of this story. Sounds like a new Q to me!

Will Anthony Weiner resign over his "sexting" scandal?
Unless there was a technical issue I don't know about, any bets after 9:25am CST on 6/16 were voided when it was settled. (You can see the actual settlement date/time underneath the picture/title). There was lots of buzz and anticipation, but it was still well before his press conference. I wasn't able to suspend earlier in the morning or I would have, but I thought the time of your flag was fair for settlement.

Ivory Coast crisis: Laurent Gbagbo or Alassane Ouattara?
I agree. This would only settle as other if none of the first three options happen before suspension. With the recent developments, it's looking pretty good for Ouattara now. I think this will settle sooner than the suspend date.

US Presidential Elections 2012: Who will be the Democratic Nominee?
Not really. This will not be announced until the democratic national convention in September 2012. Will anything have changed? Probably not. We could probably settle this now with the 99% rule but honestly... who knows what could happen in the next 17 months (a scandal, bad decision, serious health issue, even death).

Where will Gaddafi end up?
I clarified the description and removed "(from Libya)" from the last line of the description. The question creator was trying to clarify something else and it conflicted with the first option which includes Libya as a possible outcome. We will settle this shortly after the suspend date. This could still go any direction before the suspend date. If anybody has a problem with this, please let me know.

Will a "No-Fly Zone" be imposed over Libya before April 30th?
I know, I started off thinking NO WAY on this one. Looking back at the history of no-fly zones and the scale and time-line of such an operation, it didn't make sense. Then I realized he wasn't going to stop doing insane things and what it would honestly take to protect the people over there. I just hope it ends soon.

Japan Earthquake: WORST CASE - will a reactor meltdown happen?
While the seemingly obvious answer to this question is YES, unless authorities or the IAEA officially confirm a full or partial meltdown in the next 16 hours (suspension), this question settles as NO. All we've heard is a bunch of "believed to be", "could be", "likely", and "appears to have" quotes to the press.

Will a "No-Fly Zone" be imposed over Libya before April 30th?
UN approves no-fly zone over Libya The U.N. Security Council on Thursday approved a no-fly zone over Libya and authorized "all necessary measures" to protect civilians from attacks by Moammar Gadhafi's forces. French Prime Minister Francois Fillon said if the resolution was approved, France would support military action against Qaddafi within hours. The U.S. said it was preparing for action.

Where will Gaddafi end up?
The question asks "where will he go next (from Libya).." not "where will he be on March 31" so it should ride until the event happens. It seems pretty inevitable he will be removed from power so it's a good market that should be able to settle when it happens. We can always extend the suspension date if needed.

Will Berlusconi spend time in jail after sex trial ?
Judge Cristina Di Censo handed down the indictment Tuesday with a terse statement that showed she believes there is sufficient evidence to subject Berlusconi to an immediate trial, as prosecutors requested. The speeded-up procedure, which is ordered in cases of overwhelming evidence, skips a preliminary hearing that alone can take nearly a year.

Will a "No-Fly Zone" be imposed over Libya before April 30th?
(LA TIMES) A no-fly zone over Libya would be a complex operation. To establish a no-fly zone, the U.S. and its allies would need to bomb Libya's air defense system and devote hundreds of aircraft to patrol the country, military officers say.

Will Taco Bell quit advertising "Beef"?
UPDATED STATEMENT REGARDING CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT - January 26, 2011
"The lawsuit is bogus and filled with completely inaccurate facts. Our beef is 100% USDA inspected, just like the quality beef you would buy in a supermarket and prepare in your home. It then is slow-cooked and simmered with proprietary seasonings and spices to provide Taco Bell's signature taste and texture. Our seasoned beef recipe contains 88% quality USDA-inspected beef and 12% seasonings, spices, water and other ingredients that provide taste, texture and moisture. The lawyers got their facts wrong. We take this attack on our quality very seriously and plan to take legal action against them for making false statements about our products. There is no basis in fact or reality for this suit and we will vigorously defend the quality of our products from frivolous and misleading claims such as this."
