I'm pretty sure that my predictions are familiar to most community  
members by now.
I continue to stand by them publicly. If the predictions turn out to  
be right, perhaps you'll reconsider your assertion, and my "theses" --  
just as I will be obliged to if they turn out to be completely off base.

If you have any non-tautological predictions to make (i.e., "'markets'  
are good, therefore whatever resulted from a 'market' was/is good"),  
then I think putting them on the record publicly here would be a fine  
way to putting them to the same test.
