Submarine Intelligence and Forecasting

One of my collateral, onboard submarine chores entailed the word intelligence. I recall being more impressed with the subject matter than the clerical nature of my contribution. In fact, I had thoroughly forgotten about the task and its offbeat location for many years.

There were a few more special assignments like that, mostly ashore, which I have not received nor would I seek liberty to discuss. Later, I would come to appreciate all of them properly compared to the novel breaks from monotony they had supplied at the time.

From an optimum perspective, it became evident that it is possible to predict almost anything. In case you have not noticed, some forecasting is performed at M.E.

Take the left image (above), for instance. M.E. published it in July 2007, in a posting called Solution: Submariner Catch as Catch Can Sleep.

Fifteen months later, a related Ahmadinejad sleep story has just appeared: Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad admits exhaustion. Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has said he is suffering from exhaustion, in a rare public disclosure apparently designed to combat rumors he is more seriously ill.

Mr Ahmadinejad, who is known for working long hours and getting little sleep, has low blood pressure and has gone to the hospital occasionally to seek treatment, said Mohammad Hossein Saffar Harandi, the Iranian Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance.
As our loyal readers were reminded last year, "Molten Eagle has never believed a U.S. attack on Iran is necessary or in the cards, as long as alternatives exist to ridding Tehran of Ahmadinejad. Is he committing a slow political suicide or will he be a victim of a quick transportation or radiological accident?"
Scientists recently confirmed an unusual source of x-rays predicted in the 1930s:

What other sources of radiation have not been confirmed yet?... Hmmm!
Suppose Hugo Chavez is feeling sleepy these days?
