The only thing that Patcher can't predict is my shoe in his chin if I ever run into this babbling idiot....Can we put a moratorium on Patcher news please, this website would be better for it.

It makes sense and you won't need a psychic to determine the numbers. Pachter gets the cred once again for the obvious. What about all his missed predictions. HA!
