Here's a sobering thought for people who don't like Game Of Thrones: We're only halfway through season 7. Over the coming weeks, the online memes, social media chatter and water cooler nattering is only going to get worse.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
